On August 22, 2015 I attended the wedding of a couple from my church (Wade and Stephanie Hicks). It was there I first laid eyes on the most handsome man I have ever seen. I didn't have enough confidence to go talk to him, but that didn't stop me from staring at him any chance I got. I couldn't believe my eyes when the very next day I saw Blake walking downtown! I now believe that God was planting a seed in my heart for him. Because I didn't think I had a shot with Blake, I can honesty say I didn't think about him over the course of the next year. However, I was (unknowingly) praying for Him. I prayed for a Godly man who would love Him first and me second.
Flash forward over a year later...I was walking into church when I saw Blake outside talking to Wade. Blake attended the first service of our church and I usually attended the second service, so we never ran into each other. (Side note: We also grew up less than one mile from each other and went to the same high school for a year without ever meeting!) I remember I was just trying to make it to the door without tripping in front of him. This was the first time Blake saw me. After that, Blake started coming to the bible study group I was a part of. We went fishing for our first date shortly after that and the rest is history!
