Two years ago, I wrote extensively about my whole courtship with my wonderful Hubby, so if you want to read more detail, look here, here, here, and here. But as for the crazy way we met, well, it went something like this...
I like to think of my meeting with my future Hubby as being one of those examples of God doing everything in His own perfect timing. You see, we attended the same church for years, literally, before I ever noticed him. There's even video of the two of us standing next to each other in a church Christmas play. So even though he was there all the time, I firmly believe God kept me from seeing him until the time was right.
Hubby had this friend named Rob, and Rob was a friend of mine as well. In typical fifteen-year-old girl fashion, I had no idea Rob liked me. He was just a guy with whom I could discuss Star Trek. One night, there was a concert at the church, and Rob was helping clean up afterward. Suddenly, there was future-Hubby. There wasn't literally a spotlight shining on him or angels singing, but it sure felt that way.
My jaw dropped and I said to Rob, "Who's your friend?" He introduced us. Within the week I had gotten hold of future-Hubby's phone number and called him repeatedly. I didn't know Rob had told him to stay away from me, and I probably wouldn't have cared if I had. He was funny, cute, and fun to be around.
By the end of the summer, before he left for college, I knew we were going to be married one day. It's one of the few times I've heard an actual voice in my ear tell me something. He was driving, I was in the passenger seat, and in my right ear a voice said, "You're going to marry him." Pretty scary for a fifteen-year-old girl! I shrugged it off. But it was always there in the back of my head.
Of course, it was six years and many frustrations later, but it happened! All in God's perfect timing.
