Curious people want to know...

After a recent post about my first date, people asked questions about how I had the nerve to ask my now husband on a first date and how I asked him to marry me. I have been thinking about this for several days and I remember how my whole body was shaking when I asked him both times. I guess that gave me a good idea how men really feel. Here is my answer:
I moved to the town I current live in for a job. I moved away from everyone I knew. I was really lonely. So, I started praying for answers to what I should do. I had several ideas and I would bring them to my Heavenly Father and ask him if that was what I should do. None of the answers were in the positive from my Heavenly Father, so after not knowing what to do, I started doing some of the things that I really got the answer that it was not right because I felt like it was right. But as it usual happens, everything went wrong with the things I was trying to do. After those bad experiences, I started praying harder to learn what I was suppose to do, but I still was not getting an answer, at least not one that I wanted. I was really depressed for about two months. I met my now husband at a single activity at church. Every time I was around him, I got this feeling like I should go and ask him out, but I was way too scared, so I prolonged my misery! Anyways, I still prayed and felt so sure that I was suppose to ask this guy out, that finally one day in the church parking lot I did. I continued to pray through our dating and got the feeling early on that this was the one for me! I asked him questions to try to get him to talk about marriage, hoping he would ask me, but he never did. I even talked to some of his friends and they even told me it would be a long time before he would be ready for anything like marriage. So, one day we were at my apartment talking about something related to marriage and I just came out and asked him if he would marry me? I told him that I wanted him to be the father of my children. He just started crying. I thought to myself then, how am I going to get out of this. I finally looked at him and said something like I know I asked you to marry me, but you still have to ask me. He got down on his hands and knees and asked me. It was a very special time for me to look back on. We started planning our wedding that night! So, I found my happiness and I think that if I would have to say what led me to doing those things I would have to say answers from prayers gave me the strength! I hope this answers your question!

Hi Lorie

Isn't it amazing how God answers our prayer..
It's also funny how many time we keep doing the things WE want to do insteed of listing to God the 1st time, I use to find myself doing it all the time, not because I didn't want to follow God but more because I thought it was best.. How VERY silly is that.. Thankfully He is teaching me each day to listen and obey.. It makes life so much easier and happier thta way. :)
Great Post.
Are you going to play Time Travel Tuesday This week, about our dad's?? I hope so..
