Have you ever had a Divine encounter… and I’m not talking about an encounter with the Divine. I’m talking about an encounter set up by the Divine.

I get the question from time to time, “how do you know that you’ve found ‘the one'”? I don’t know if there is an answer to that question, and when I was single I hated it when people would say, “when you know, you just know”. Shut up!

Oops, as it turns out, they were right.

It wasn’t love at first sight (is there even such a thing?), but ten months after we met we were engaged, and married less then a year later.

I could not imagine life without her.

Have you ever had an encounter set up by the Divine?

    I have had an encounter set up by the Divine. And we’ve been married now for almost 9 years! We met at Border’s Books – I was studying for an exam. There’s lots more to the story, but we were engaged three months later, we were scheduled to get married six months after that, but some obstacles got in our way. We were married the following April (six months later). So 15 months after “the Divine” broke in, we were married. No, it wasn’t love at first sight; I actually tried to get rid of him. But God wasn’t having that. And now, we have the most beautiful daughter – she’ll be six years old in May!

    Thanks for sharing KWiz, that’s a beautiful story with a comical twist somewhere in it’s midst.
