We're getting MARRIED!!!
To all those who are looking for Mr Right or Mrs Right and faithfully waiting for God to do his work! Iain and I met when we went on one of the Christian Connections speed dating events. We had both been subscribers for a year or so before we individually decided to jump in the deep end and sign up for an event in Bristol. It was lovely to pray beforehand as a group. It was a lot of fun and for Iain and I, and a very sucessful event.
We met up afterwards and began to tentively date, its worth noting that i told anyone who would listen that after our first date after the speed dating event that i had met my husband to be! I told Iain after our second date, on the telephone, that he gave me butterflies in my tummy....he said that he didn't feel the same way BUT he might do in 3, 6 or even 12 months!!! Not detered I was patient with him and in a fact it only took him another 2 months to confess that he loved me. Ah!
True to form i took the lead (that'll be the story of our lives together) and told him in June last year that my answer was "YES!" Iain turned to me with a puzzled look and said "Um, yes to what?" I replied "Yes, i'll marry you" With a one very severely raised eyebrow he informed me "hmmm, well you'd better wait until you're asked!" Once again i waited patiently, enjoying our time together knowing that he would ask when he was ready.
While we were on holiday in June this year Iain handed me a package. Inside was a book, The Wedding Planner and inside he had written "Will you marry me?" Of course the answer was "YES!"
We're grinning from ear to ear and wanted you to know that God can and does make our dreams come true.
God bless to you all
