Do you believe in love?
Acts 17:26-27 From one man He created every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth. He determined the set times and places where they should live. Vs.27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him though he is not far from each of us.
God truly does set the times and places so that perhaps we might seek him. This is so reflective in our story...
We met in April of 2009 at the most unlikely location... Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, while we were attending then Pre-Paid Legal's International Convention. What began as a group conversation among mutual friends turned into a one on one conversation that would change both of our lives.
At first we thought that we had simply made good business contacts. With Danielle living in South Carolina and Ronel Living in NJ, a relationship was not on the radar for either of us. We left that conference not realizing that we had just exchanged business cards with our future spouses. This was the beginnning of a great friendship with 3hr phone calls, movie nights through Skype, and deep conversations ranging every imaginable topic.
Our first date was truly memorable as we both traveled 5hrs to meet halfway in Virginia. Each of us staying with our relatives, we met throughout the weekend to finally hang out in person. We spent the good part of that weekend trying to convince our families (and ourselves) that we were "just friends" :/ After that weekend the undeniable spark between us brought us to decide to begin dating.
Now, if this were a fairy tale we would have ended the story here, and went on to live happily ever after... However, the 10hr distance between us challanged our relationship, and lead to us separating :( Several months passed and though at times it appeared bleek, ultimately our true friendship would bring us back together. As we continued to cross paths at company events and hear each others voices on conference calls, the pull for us to be together became increasingly powerful. Before long we decided to remove distance as an obstacle for our relationship and on August 30, 2011 Ronel relocated to the Carolinas so that we could live closer each other.
In the following year following Ronel's move we grew tremendously both as individuals and as a couple. The most important growth stemmed from us making God the center of our lives. Our relationship was all a part of his design to bring us both to Him, and in the process He blessed us with each other... Amen.
