O Happy Day

Posted by hrgarippa on 3 April, 2009

For the last couple of years I’ve known of this guy, Danny. He’s served at Mercy Street on occasion, he was present when the Watermark Chuckwagon almost blew Trey and Johnny to smithereens. Our lives have intersected for a while now, but on February 12 we had a head-on collision.

That morning I got my hair done (or did, as the kids over here say) and afterward decided to get some coffee and do a bit of work at Starbucks, as I found my place a guy says to me…”I know you, I know I know you…from where?” I’m totally surprised because this is not my neighborhood Starbucks and he was a little intense, but I quickly realize it is Danny and say, “Mercy Street” and we proceed to talk for the next 45 minutes.

I was speaking that Saturday at Mercy Street, and he asked to hear about it…was super encouraging and then as I was leaving said, “Can I get your number, I’d love to call you and see how it goes on Saturday?” I said sure. (note to any guys out there…this is how it is done, you are suppose to pursue the girl).

And I left. Little did I know that as soon as I walked out of Starbucks he put my number in his phone and marked the date and time we met…because as he says, “He just knew it was important.”

Ladies and any gentleman out there…its been important ever since.

I am SO thankful that God has brought this man into my life. This man that loves Jesus, and has the most amazing heart. This man that cares for me and prays for me. This man that wants what God wants for me…before he wants what he wants for me.  He is so kind and selfless. And in the words of a friend who endorsed him in the beginning, “he is one of the most heavenly-minded men I know.”

It is so much fun to be in a new relationship, to be learning about each other…to be learning to love each other. God is good, all the time…this we know…this we trust. I do my best to savor each moment of these days, they are so wonderful and filled with such happiness, giddiness and sheer joy.

Here is my sweet Danny….with his kind eyes and that amazing smile….oh, and there’s me…CHEESY!!!!!
