10 Years Ago Today

February 19, 1999 I met the man of my dreams...I was out with a group of friends and he was out with another group of friends...I asked him to dance and the rest is history.

I've been kind of preparing myself for today, Michaela had school and I had to work. I've been feeling a bit off today because I'm wondering if this is where I'm suppose to be, am I doing what God wants me to be doing...this week I've been really working on making sure I'm living in God's will.

So I'm at my desk and my friend comes into the office, now this woman is an amazing woman of God. She is so beautiful inside and out...not that she would ever admit that she is gorgeous...but whatever! Anyway she came to me with a devotional book she was reading and showed me today's devotional written by a woman named Sandra P. Aldrich she lost her husband to brain cancer when he was 39...WOW.

This verse really spoke to me,

Your Maker is your husband - the Lord Almighty is his name - the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth Isaiah 54:5

So I'm reading this book and just started crying...not the nice little teary, the big sobbing ugly cry! This was just want I needed, I needed to feel that God was there with me, I needed to know that He is going to look out for me...but I also need to make sure that I am communicating with Him. I know that right now I'm where God wants me to be, I will trust him to guide my decisions, I will trust him to protect us and provide for us.

The crazy thing is that she didn't know what meaning this day had for me, she had no idea. God amazes me when He does things like this...He is so good!!
