It is as if we were always a part of each other’s lives.

I am finally writing our Story. After having been on ASC and other Adventist Singles sites for several years, I had still not found that right person. I had originally joined these sites not with any real intention of finding someone, but rather for finding SDA friends where I was living. I had come back to the faith after having been living some time in the world. The Lord blessed me with many friends here and other places. Some I seen go on to meet and marry their special someone. I would delete my profile and then after months I would come back to see who was new and curious as to just maybe I might meet someone. Well last year I had deleted my account around February of 2007. Then this last September I decided to move from where I was living in California to where my mom was living in Oregon. I had two choices: move to Arizona or to Oregon. After much prayer and thought, I chose Oregon. Part of that thought was getting back online checking out local churches for what kind of young adults lived around those towns. Including reactivating my account on this site and checking out the young adult population from this angle. I had no intention of looking for a prospect, I was looking for friends. It seemed from my research and prayer that Oregon was the best choice. So with that, I made my decision. Not two days after, I had put the wheels into action for the move. I received a profile from djharvey. I looked at his profile and thought, "what is this guy sending me his profile for, he is nice looking and seems like someone that would be a great match spiritually, life style wise and so on". I waited a couple days before I emailed him back. Honestly, I was afraid to.
Then one night while sitting at my computer staring at his profile, I was arguing with God about responding to him. I was scared because I did not want to get rejected, but after all he had sent me his profile.
I felt the Lord telling me to let go and let him work here and to trust him. So I said OK! Don’t be so serious about this, just have fun, it will be an adventure. If it does not work out, oh well, I will have made another friend I am sure. So with a new attitude about the whole thing, I wrote to him. A couple cards and emails later, we started instant messaging, chatting, and then phone calls. I moved to Oregon at the end of November. On December 7th, he drove from College Place, Washington to meet me and spent the weekend with my Mother and I. Just after Christmas, I drove the nine hours to College Place and spent a week and a half with him and his parents and his two children. On January 1st, he asked me to marry him. I said yes of course. It has been kind of a whirlwind, but it is as if we were always a part of each other’s lives.
We had crazy connections of friends and family throughout our lives. For example, His grandmother in Montana used to baby-sit my cousins from the side of my family that is not even SDA. The list goes on. God directed me here; I knew that, but to what end I had no clue. Dan and I feel so very blessed. He is my perfect match and my man after God’s own heart. Thank you for your site and the work that you do. Dan and I will be married June 8th 2008 in California with some of our friends attending the wedding that I met from this very site. Thanks again!
