It’s amazing how much has transpired in my life over this past year. I marvel at the Lord’s goodness and direction. Saturday, September 6th, I married the love of my life, Elissa. The story begins almost two years ago. In October 2012, I met Elissa through mutual friends we stayed with during a Titus2 fall tour. While there, Elissa spent some time with my sisters but I only interacted with her briefly.
I didn’t think too much about her, but then, the next fall, our family had the opportunity to park our bus at Elissa’s family’s home on a few of our free days since our mutual friends had moved away.
As I observed Elissa during that visit and talked with her in a family setting, I began to greatly admire her and what the Lord was doing in her life. I became very interested in her, prayed, fasted, and sought the Lord’s will regarding Elissa as a wife. I prayed some more. After discussing it with my parents, I called her dad and expressed my interest. Our family then invited her family to join us for Thanksgiving.
Part 2 will be coming at some point!
“They shall speak of the glory of thy
kingdom, and talk of thy power.”
