After 2 weeks of chatting, we finally met for our first date!
During our chats, we discovered we were similar in many ways! We like photography, writing, birds, the beach! But most importantly, we love God! Chester watches the sunset every Saturday, in honor of the Sabbath. In honor of God. So a sunset beach date was the perfect place for a first meeting! And it was perfect. I felt comfortable sharing my stories. I felt comfortable being me: quirky, dorky, and awkward Me! And he thought Me was beautiful. In my opinion, he saw Me the way God sees Me! Man looks at the outward appearance but God sees the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7) I have a heart for God and I have a heart for God’s will! And my new friend Chester sees that and appreciates that attribute in me!
So we did watch the sun set and it was serene. And the Lord was ever present as always, because He walks with me daily as I seek Him daily. He also carries me when I am sad or overwhelmed.
The Lord is with you too. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart! Psalm 37:4
He does it for me, He will do it for you! He loves you!
