I met and fell for my husband in Aug 2008. I'd noticed him at church, and i knew there was something about him...I didn't know him, but couldn't stop thinking about him, and I was frustrated because I'd just become really happy being single and I didn't want to be all wrapped up in a guy. I prayed "if he's meant to notice me, make him notice me" the next week I got on a bus on the way to church, and there he was sitting in the seat i always sat in, with an empty seat beside him. I'd never been one to chase a guy, I'm old-fashioned, but I knew he was worth it, so I started the conversation, and with God's extreme help I became one of his best female friends (this guy didn't wanna be caught!). 6 long months of thrilling and torturous friendship later (we talked all day every day, literally) he woke up one morning and realized he was totally in love with me
he sent me flowers and asked me out. (I almost had a heart-attack from shock). We both knew though we were only dating because we knew we were going to get married. 6 months of endless talking on facebook while at work, on the bus, walking home etc... adds up and you get to know the person verrry well. most of our friends were not aware of our facebook friendship though, and were in shock when we started dating (we never talked or hung out in person)...they were still shocked when we got engaged 3 months later, and got married 3 months after that.
people have always tried to tell us the fairy tale will end, but they were wrong. I love my husband and respect him more each and every day, and I know I am blessed to be in his life. ♥
two and a half years later our little princess Legacy was born
i had a natural birth at home with a midwife and doula and my wonderful husband. it started out as contractions 1 or 2 mins apart and it stayed that way (back labour) for 19 hours! I was glad when it was over and i could sleep. i slept like a rock! it was all worth it though and i love being her mom!
having a baby has change me for the better. abortion use to be not my battle, but being pregnant, i looked into fetal developmental stages. i think medically and scientifically, we can't claim ignorance anymore. abortion stops a beating heart. it ends precious lives when they are most vulnerable, and it hurts women. i am not someone who is aggressive or insensitive. i won't go rubbing it in with graphic pictures, (even though those pictures should not make you mad at the people showing them, they should make you mad at the people responsible for the injustice). i realize women who have abortions are in a terrible place, and i have all the empathy in the world for them, but i don't believe in any situation a woman is better off for ending her baby's life.
i'm not just someone who spouts off ideals, i do everything i can to back them up. i personally being pro-life want to make a difference for women who keep their babies. so i look for the ones who need help in my community, and i meet the need i see. my husband and i save a certain amount every month for just that. and we actively look for expecting moms who can't afford baby things, and we get them those things, and we are emotionally available. Tithes are for the levite (minister), the widow and the orphan.Christians are meant by God to meet these needs. not the government! if all christians had a revelation of tithing our communities wouldn't have the enormous needs that they do. I've read that if every church in America adopted one child, there would be no children in the system. Wake up church, take your place, and do your job! It starts with me.
