In January of 1990, I was so sick of boys it was pathetic. I needed a fresh new start to my life cause I was cleaning it up. I sat on the hood of my car and prayed that God would just send me somebody who loved me. They didn’t have to know why, just as long as they did, I didn’t care. And I asked him to throw in tall,dark, and handsome too. So that way I would know it was God. Well,
27 yrs ago this tall, dark and handsome drink of water asked me out on a date. I was skeptical at first cause I didn’t want to screw up again and not follow Gods plan. The tall, dark and handsome should have rung a bell, but I didn’t catch it.
Well, there was just some thing about him. Maybe it was those baby blues, I don’t know, but I said ok. He scared me because on this first date he already told me he loved me. Now, I’m thinking boy, you’re moving way to fast for me. But I let him tell me anyway. Three weeks later he scared me more when he said he knew I was the one he was going to marry. In my head I wanted to run, but once again, those baby blues did it, along with my heart. I felt then God was giving me a fresh new start. So, I just had to ask, “Why do you love me?” His answer, “I don’t know, I just do!” BAM!!!! It’s like God Gibb slapped me in the back of my head and I remembered my prayer. Then I knew, this is the one. David said, “It took you that long to figure it out? I’ve been knowing it all along!” Really? Smarty pants.
Boy, am I so glad I did say yes. It has been an incredible journey and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’d do it all over again. We have come a long way with God’s grace and this December we will be married 26 years. I am one who can truly say God answers prayers. I love you David Dixon with all my heart. Thank you for not knowing why you love me. Lol.
