Ron and I met Oct. '08 on this site. We frequently talked on the phone (having wonderful conversations that lasted hours) and he was also talking to another woman. To my disappointment he chose to be involved with the other woman even though I was hoping to meet him in person before he made any decision. From my perspective he was choosing the woman who was closer and seemed as better fit at the time. That relationship soon fizzled out, and he called me on Mother's Day '09 to wish me a wonderful day (I'm not sure what he was thinking and he no longer remembers) and I told him that I was in a relationship. Fall of '09 he finds me on Facebook and we become friends and Farmville neighbors. This led to conversations every once in a while, and then he attended AFCOE the spring of 2010. Conversations continued intermittently as my relationship with another ended. There were some conversations that left me frustrated and I thought that we were in different places with our walk with God, in spite of that I felt that I needed to meet this man that I had talked with so many hours. We decided to meet when his program ended, meeting halfway at my parents home. Neither one of us expected a successful meeting or that we would have much in common. He was so hesitant to come because of finances that he almost canceled. I gave him a hard time and reminded him that this was the one opportunity since both of us were in the same state. He came and met me. We found out that he have a great deal in common, enjoying the same activities. We pray together, have morning worship together and spoke for hours and hours. The reservations that we had about each other quickly disappeared as we got to know each other better and understood the different perspectives and experiences we both had. He felt called to move closer to me and the rest is history because we are now married. We are building the relationship daily and God is our third thread making a strong three strand rope.
P.S. The most amazing thing is that we both found that which we were looking for, and it was not by our hands that it happened.
