I received this message from Carolynne S. and I asked her if I could share her love story with other Love and Grace readers. I am so happy she said yes, because her love story touched my heart deeply. Keep in mind that this is only a tiny glimpse of how God blessed her.
We each have our own unique love story written by God. Hearing these stories provides encouragement that we can trust in God’s timing. When He delivers His blessings to His sons and daughters, it is joy unspeakable! The what and the how of God’s blessings far outweighs the when!
I married at the age of 36 and I say again and again….I would wait another eighteen years for my Ronnie.
The blessings of the Lord are that good!!!
Carolynne’s story is one of many I have heard since starting the Love and Grace for Singles blog. I hope to hear more! Don’t you?
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; But when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. - Proverbs 13:12 (ASV)
Your love story made me smile. My story is so similar although I was
nearly 50 years old when the Lord sent my husband two years ago! I too
basically said that God would need to drop a man out of the sky for me
to consider marriage now. No more “seeking.”
In September of 2010 the Lord “dropped” an old friend back into my
life. He literally knocked on my door and “just stopped by” to see how
I was doing. He began to “drop by” more often and to do handyman work
around my house.
The Lord opened our eyes to one another and things moved rather
quickly. We married in July of 2011. It is a fantastic first marriage
for each of us. God IS FAITHFUL! I had totally given up on marrying,
but others were praying, and God had His plan.
I am still amazed when I look over and see him standing next to me or
when I look down and see a wedding band on MY finger. There are times
when I almost forget that I’m not “never married” anymore.
I have truly learned that God’s ways are higher than ours, and we
should NEVER GIVE UP.
Many blessings to you, your husband, and your ministry!
