What a blessing. I am indebted to your site, as that is where my husband and I met almost 5 years ago now. It does not seem possible that it has been that long ago already.
I was from Washington State, and one day I was impressed to go on line and meet some single S.D.A. gentlemen. I fought that impression for an entire week. However, one morning I awoke and just knew in my heart that I was not going to spend the remainder of my life alone. So I began making inquires as to how to reach our S.D.A. "dating" site.
About a month later I read my husbands profile---and laughed so hard that I actually had to get down off of my chair and just sat on the floor rocking back and forth---laughing. You know how we make a profile in our heads of what we would like---well, I wanted someone TALL. He wasn't as tall as I wanted, and lived so far away, and, I could go on, however, I just kept coming back to his profile, and told my mother, "I do not know what it is, but there is just something about this man that I really like".
Four months later he came for a visit. We had a lovely time, and I fell in love with him. He was a bit slower as he had his own set profile for a woman. However, a lovely friendship blossomed. We could tell each other anything, (over the phone of course), and we emailed every day.
It is an absolute must to be friends first; friends who can trust one another completely at every level, to be able to share the most vulnerable aspects of ones life, and to still be able to be accepting, trusting, loving.
We visited back and forth between Washington State, and Illinois for 2 years. We found that the longest we could really stand to be separated was about 3 months. Finally I started praying that if I was to move to his area where we could become better acquainted on a day to day basis that the doors would be opened. God answered that prayer. My husband flew out, and moved me out to Illinois. We have been happily married for two years now, and are so happy. God is so good!!
Thank you for the opportunity that he and I might meet. May God abundantly bless your site more than you could ask or think.
Joyfull & Sweetman
