This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Time Travel Tuesdays

Annie is asking us to remember back to when we first met our husbands. Well…hmmm…blush. Yes I do remember. I’d never had someone take my breath away before or after.

My future husband’s first appearance in my life was when I was managing a retail store.

He came in to pick up his girlfriend’s check. She worked for me. She had called to ask if it was okay. I didn’t just go handing out people’s checks.

I had recently been left by my fiancé—we had been together five years. I was beginning to see that losing that relationship was truly a gift from God. And really had NO intention of becoming re-attached to someone very quickly.

Obviously my future spouse was attached. And his girlfriend, my employee—did I mention that??—asked if I would hire him—he was between jobs. I did. He was a pretty good employee. He had a knack for sales and apparently liked to spend time at the job.

Well…since you know the end of the story I think I will leave it at that. We actually do still keep in touch with his old girlfriend. So I think maybe it wasn’t too terrible and all. But I don’t know if I would recommend that avenue of meeting and dating.

He still says I’m the boss (but we know that’s really not true.) And he still takes my breath away.

Isn't it wonderful to have our breath taken away??? :) Great story-everyone's lives are so different from each other's which amazes me. I don't think of all the ones I have read anyone's story is the same as someone elses!
