Coincidence? Me thinks not.
Right place. Right Time?
Me thinks so.
Open to try a new relationship? Not so much.
But that was then .
Once upon a time a handsome, Brave man sent a friend request to a certain woman.
She ignored it. She was clamped tighter than a clam.
And she had a plan. (which may, or may not, have included homesteading in the Great State of Texas. )
Until curiosity got the better of her.
God said “Go”. I said, “NO” .
But I did, of course, obey. So for coffee, I (gasp away) invited him.
With tightly set parameters and having laid out the ‘rules’
so I (or he) could escape, we met. After nearly 40 years.
We’d parted on (very) wobbly footing all those years ago.
Now? Simply curious.
Imagine my disappointment when he was such a nice guy! 😉 Drats!
(come on- you know you hope your ‘ex’ will always be unhappy, bitter and miserable)
My curiosity satisfied. Walking away (after nearly 2 surprising hours of conversation) he asked about a ‘real date’.
I opened my mouth to say “No thanks”. To my true surprise some voice said “Yes, Please.”
That was then.
This is now.
Today marks the Anniversary of that first Coffee date. (he tells me) ← 6 ways Evidence of Change
When God gives you a guy who remembers small things like anniversary dates, old times, first songs, first kisses, first prayers?
He might just be worth a #secondglance.
We spent our date night in a local House Of Prayer. A home alive with The Lord.
Me thinks that is definitely a #secondchance in the making.
Drop by in September for more remembrances of that first “Official Date”.
What? Can’t wait another week?
Instagram captures our adventures now days. You’re Welcome. 🙂
Until next time, Shandra Lee White Harris
