"Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desire." Psalm 37:4
About two weeks before I met you I received this message in a fortune cookie...
"The love of your life will appear in front of you unexpectedly!"
Like everyone else, I enjoy a good fortune cookie, but I rarely save those tiny pieces of paper. If I do save them, I usually lose them about 5 minutes later. Ironically at this time in my life I was completely down on love and dating; so this fortune made me chuckle...sarcastically chuckle. As I put it in my wallet, I thought..."right, we'll see."
Then several days later, I was rushing up the sidewalk of the Dallas Museum of Art to meet a blind date. A blind date that I really DID NOT want to meet, but thought..."what the heck, surely this one couldn't be any worse than the last."
In that moment, that instant that we said hello...I knew. Yes, it's true. I knew. I never believed in love at first sight. It always sounded hokey...until it happened to me. In the briefest moment of time, I realized that this man that stood in front of me was all I ever wanted. All I never knew I desired, until that moment. Suddenly God revealed to me those deep desires of my heart, and He plopped them right in front of me on that cold December afternoon.
So I keep that tiny little fortune on my desk not only to remind me of the moment I met you, but also how suddenly everything I ever dreamed of came to be...in one moment...the moment I met you. Jeremy, you are truly my heart's desire. Happy Valentine's Day!
