Love GenX Style Contest entry #26

Remember the story with the most votes wins the "date with your spouse" gift certificate! If you haven't yet submitted a story...what are you waiting for? :)

Today's entry is from Billie K:

How I met my husband? I met him through God's orchestration.

Really, it is not all that incredible (1st time he asked me that is worth publishing). I have left out a lot of details, but I can look back and see God's fingerprints all over the place on our story.

In 1997, I was a year out of college and needing to make some changes spiritually and in friendships. I began "church shopping". Yes, I was on a quest to meet God, but if I ALSO met a young man in the midst, that would be OK too.

My first time at my new church I ran into a friend from my old church. She invited me over to a friend's house to hang out on Sunday evening. She told me about 2 or 3 potential guys and one was named "Mark". Although I was excited to meet these potential men, I was really there for friendships.

I can still remember what I wore that night. In fact, just last month I finally got rid of the sweater! I walked up the stairs and into the kitchen and there he was. Was it love at 1st sight? No, not for me, but I thought he was the nicest guy I'd met in awhile. We talked for hours.

And hours.

And hours.

Somehow I just knew he was the one. Even without the bells ringing. In fact, I wrote it in my journal that night...."I think I met the man I'm going to marry."

And I did.

What a cute story!! We knew pretty quickly too. I think when you've been praying for the guy God has for you for that long, sometimes you just know right away.

Hey, I personally think it was the romantic atmosphere that sparked the love -- I can say that cuz that was my house they met at! Billie - you and Mark are a wonderful example of a "best friends" marriage! Keep it up!
