Ahhh it's crazy how God works in mysterious ways.
Neither Nate nor I could have ever imagined the timing and the way the Lord brought us together. We are both here, not because of anything either of us did, but because of God’s faithfulness and kindness toward those who love and serve Him. We serve an amazing God who loves us relentlessly and will stop at nothing to draw us near to Him. I hope you see a glimpse of His love through the way Nate and I love one another.
How We Met: There is a trail for walking, running, and bikes where we live and Nate would ride his bike everyday on it after work and I would run on it everyday as well.
Little did I know Nate saw me one day, somehow he caught a glimpse of me and according to him and his friend, Nate called his friend right after he noticed me and said, "I just saw the most beautiful girl on the monon, she also had one arm." haha
A week later we met for coffee. What we thought would be a first date, quickly turned into a business meeting. We talked work for an hour and a half. Not one personal question was asked. We joke about it to this day.
Nate and I are the exact personality types, according to the 16 personalities test we are "The Executive".
Both extremely focused in our jobs, extremely stubborn and driven.
After our business meeting Nate was worried he might've blown it by not asking anything personal so he asked me to dinner the next night. I said yes of course and I was extremely impressed with how much of a gentleman he was. He was unlike any man I had ever met. He opened the car door for me, opened the door, made sure I was safe and was the most kind and genuine person. We sat at that dinner table until the restaurant closed, he took me home and the rest is history.
28 Days after we met Nate bought the ring. Leading up to that moment Nate and I had moments that only God could had planned. There was no doubt in our minds that God had placed us in each others lives at this time for Great Purpose. We thank God everyday for this incredible blessing and all of the blessings that he has given us and will continue to give.
September 7th 2019 was the day.
Nate said we were going to a nice dinner and that he would pick me up at 4:30. So I got dressed and there he was....what I thought was going to be a nice dinner turned into one of the greatest days of my life. On our way to dinner Nate said he made the reservation an hour earlier than he thought so he said we could go to a park that I had been wanting to walk at. We pulled in, parked, and went for a walk before dinner. When we got to a wooden bridge I saw roses, rose petals and a card. My initial thought was OH MY GOODNESS someone just had a moment here and we are walking through it, let's walk faster. Then Nate said hmmmm what does the card say? There was my name... As I opened the letter and read Nate soon was on one knee. Of course I said yes but after I made sure he asked my father haha and there around the corner came my family and Nates. What a wonderful moment and a moment that I will forever hold near and dear in my heart.
When I was 8 I said a prayer one night before bed. “Lord I pray that my husband holds my little arm just like he would my right hand.” The Lord made sure that prayer was fulfilled. Nate fearlessly loves me for who God created me to be.“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
