There were many things in my such as childhood and domestic abuse before marrying my wonderful husband that I was left emotional scars so deep even years of therapy couldn’t repair them. The struggle of working two jobs as an educator and bartender to raise my boys while I was a single mother only added to the pain in my soul until I felt the healing love of my husband. Throughout the difficulties of my life a love of God and an awareness that He is always with us never wavered. Daily prayer and journaling in the form of personal letters to the Lord described the Godly man I needed in my life, but couldn’t find. Today we feel God was keeping us apart as He was preparing both of us for what we found in each other. As I tell our story it will become obvious that He kept us just out of reach until He felt satisfied that we were finally ready to appreciate the kind of love we have for one another.
