Story…but the truth

One Tuesday night, a year and a half ago, I went to small group at my former youth pastor’s house. He and his family had just come back from a mission trip to Romania. I was sitting on the left hand side of the couch in the living room in my normal spot unaware that my life was about to change forever. Eddie, my pastor,  wanted to show the group some of the people the team was ministering to on the trip. And there she was. It has been said that a picture is worth 1000 words but at that particular moment I could speak none. All I knew is that I had to meet this woman! Sometimes when you stop looking for something that's exactly when you find it.... it's always the last place you look.

A fairytale this was not... prince charming never looks like Chuck Norris and you should never consider having to wash his extra large clothes, nor decode mispelled words in text messages. But real life is just that.....real, ordinarily amazing and simply complex. I don't understand why exactly but maybe not like "U2" maybe I had finally found what I was looking for.

Besides, anybody can do easy... It makes absolute perfect sense that I would be in a relationship the woman thousands of miles away. Some said I was crazy... others said worse but I don't live for other people. I prayed for a specific woman.... I just forgot to ask for her to be in the States. But I'm glad of that. I'm glad I did not limit my God in this area, because He knew that Bianca existed before the world began. She has brought color to a dull canvas and scarves to a naked neck, she is the pepper to my salt.... because love is not a fight but it's something worth fighting for and I'd go the whole wide world just to find her. And so I did.

I love you Bianca! JARRETT
