Our story began when Juan sent me a wink in January of 2012. When I saw his picture I thought he was so cute and was ecstatic to see that we only lived ten minutes away from each other. My excitement dwindled somewhat when I received his responses- at times they seemed so vague and so seemingly uninterested. But we still communicated often and decided to meet two months later. And when we finally met, I knew we had something special. His heart was that of a true Christian-He was loving and seemed dedicated to serving others.
Juan has two sons and I have a daughter. I never thought I would be able to love and open up my heart to another man, let alone his entire family. I later found out the reason Juan was so vague in the beginning was because it was his 10 year old son who was communicating with me. How great is it that God used a child to bring us together? My daughter has for the first time a positive male role model to turn to and I couldn’t be more grateful!
In May of 2012, Juan bought me a promise ring, and one month later, we settled on a wedding date! We are to be married on September of this year, the same day that my parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
Juan is everything I prayed for in a man. He puts Jesus first; he treats me like a queen and makes me want to be a better person. We have strengthened our walk with the Lord by praying, doing devotionals, and reaching out to those in need together.
Thank you ChristianMingle for being a tool that allowed me to connect with the love of my life. I love the Lord with all my heart, and He has proven how much he loves me by blessing me with my soul mate.
