We met online at the beginning of March last year and found we had loads in common, mainly singing and cycling, but other interests, too. We first met up on 20th March, then again on 8th April, both for cycle rides, which ran way over because we were so busy talking! After a picnic and walk on 10th April, followed by going to church and a time of prayer, we both knew that a relationship felt right. After that, we were pretty much inseparable and knew within a few weeks that marriage felt right. It took both of us by surprise, as neither of us had expected it.
Alistair proposed on 10th July and we were married on 7th April this year, just shy of our 1-year anniversary. We both feel immensely blessed and in awe of such a loving God, who brought us together in such a strong way. Although it moved quickly, our relationship - and now marriage - is founded in a strong friendship, as well as romance, and of course our relationship with God: our wedding Bible quotation was Ecclesiastes 4:12 - A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
To those of you still looking - don't give up, but wait on the Lord; his timing is perfect!
