It's strange how things happen... you are trudging through the mundane weary lanes of life when suddenly, out of nowhere, love walks in and touches your life in a way that you know that nothing could ever be the same again...

My story starts out in 2000 at Christmas.

After having received a new computer for Christmas I logged onto a Christian dating service.


A friend of mine had dared me to, and since I can't say no to a dare, I did it. After a couple of unproductive conversations through email with a couple of guys I ran across Greg's profile. Now I am not the type of woman to ask a man out but as soon as I read his profile I knew I had to talk to him. I sent him an email and anxiously waited for a couple of days for a response. Finally...."You've Got Mail!", I received this very sweet email from him telling me more about himself. We emailed for about a month and then decided to call each other. When I heard his voice I went weak at the knees.

We talked every night and discussed that we were both having feelings for each other but were both too scared to say the "L" word. He and I discovered that we only lived about an hour from each other and started tossing around the idea of meeting in person.






We both were being very non committal as far as when we wanted to meet or where. Finally I get a call from him saying that he has lost his house and has to find a place to stay. I knew he didn't call to see if he could stay with me, he is too much of a gentleman, but I offered for him to come and stay with me until things worked themselves out.

Now I know that probably wasn't the smartest thing to do, but no words can describe the peace I had about Greg from the first time we talked. I drove out and met him at a fast food restaurant and he followed me back to my place. We stayed up all night talking for the next 3 days. On the forth day, which happened to be Valentines day, Greg asked my permission to kiss me. Of course I said YES! Greg was there with me for 3 weeks when I got cold feet and didn't know if I was ready for this commitment. I asked Greg to leave.

That was the hardest thing for me to do but I knew that it was the best for both of us. He didn't know anyone else in the area so he flew back home to stay with his parents....2000 miles away. From the day he left we never missed a day of speaking on the phone. When he left we didn't really define where our relationship was....we left it very open ended. I started dating some guys from my church and he started seeing this woman. We talked to each other every day and discussed how our "relationships" were going, all the while, both of us were miserable. Even though both of us were "seeing" other people, every time we talked Greg said we should just get married and end all of this heartache. I always just blew him off when he said that because I wasn't ready to make that kind of commitment yet.

This went on for about 5 months when one day I called him at work and said "Hey, why don't you move?" I don't have that computer anymore, after Greg moved out here it quit working completely. I don't know if you believe in God's hand being on situations but I do and I know that from the moment I got that computer it was ordained for me and Greg to be together and it is amazing to me to see how things worked out to make that happen!

Thanks for taking the time to read our story!
