The beginning of something great

Five years ago today, God answered years of prayer and I didn't even know it. Five years ago, my life changed in a way I couldn't anticipate. Five years ago I met Brian for the first time. I know it's silly, but I always wanted to remember the first time I met my spouse. I remember the exact moment like it was yesterday. 

The picture above is the campus lawn (known as the J-bowl) at my college. I spent hours walking around this lawn praying. I would pray about my life and being single, which, for your information, is very difficult at Bible school. Yesterday, while Brian was in Louisville for a conference, he sent me this picture. I was overwhelmed at the grace of God. Brian was walking the path I wore out while praying for him. I just didn't know it was him at the time. God is so good!

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph. 3: 20-21, ESV)
