I knew the moment I fell in love with Him.

…it wasn't when my would-be husband kissed me for the first time, though my heart fluttered with passion.  With that one kiss, I knew he was a gift from God.

…it wasn't in the miracle of healing when my lover was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy. Instead, my mind ached with an abrupt awareness of how fleeting this life really is.
 
…it wasn't even when we stood in the presence of God, family, and friends, declaring our love for one another and becoming one with the promise of two simple, yet highly valued words. I Do. It was my fairytale dream come true.

The moment I fell in love with Him was life changing beyond my wildest imagination.

…it wasn't when my husband and I struggled through infertility, only to discover God works in His perfect timing. When we least expected it, we received the blessing of answered prayer with the births of each of our daughters. Our hearts still overflow with joy and gratitude.   

…it wasn't during our three year job layoff, the short sale of our home, our resulting move across country, or our overwhelming concerns over money. God was our compass, our shelter, and our umbrella of peace during the storm.

…it wasn't even when I looked in the mirror one morning not long ago to find a transformed, beautiful work of art - His still unfinished masterpiece, molded over the years - staring back at me.  I'm nearly unrecognizable, but in the most awesome way! His fingerprints are all over me.

No, I fell in love with God the moment I felt His powerful presence in my life. In me! It was the moment I truly began a relationship with Him. A heartfelt, emotional moment when I surrendered it all to Him, for His glory. 

It is a love story of God and me. His mighty hands have held my heart through it all. In the blessings and in the storms. In the lessons and in the rewards. In the joy and in the sorrow. 

There is no greater love than His.

Don't you know…

He loves YOU too!
