Bubble Wrap is where it (the online romance) all started and ended up here on Big Bear Lake almost one full year later for our wedding, as we were shown the home of the original co-inventor Alfred Fielding pictured here:
After randomly following each other on social media, I commented on his relatable 💯 free spirit displayed as he danced joyfully on bubble wrap for entertainment during the COVID quarantine. He replied with a compliment about my contagious smile. And the rest “as they say” (whoever THEY are) is history!
With God ALL things are possible — including bringing two random people together from over 2000 miles apart together in the midst of a world wide pandemic lockdown!
Never doubt the work He is FAITHFUL to complete in you! Philippians 1:6
Tonight as I closed my eyes while Niel prayed for us over the phone, the inside of my eyelids were filled with images of the glistening Lake water rippling in the sunlight. He had called me from our home while I am still at the lodge from our Honeymoon due to his return to work and me having the freedom to continue exploring the mountain top while spending quality time alone with Jesus.
My strong, intelligent, compassionate, sexy new husband not only tolerates this freedom & independence, but he also encourages it!
That’s one of the reasons why this marriage already works so well! We support each other in pursuing our passion and purpose both individually and collectively as one flesh.
And since most of our courtship was done long distance reading God’s Word and praying together over the phone every night, this is quite comfortable and familiar territory for us.
Fellow blogger ⬆️ like myself :)
and outdoor enthusiast who also adores the beauty of God’s creation just like me!
We also have our unique differences which keeps life interesting and entertaining. But honestly I have never known a man more perfectly suited for me— as if God chose him or maybe even created him to be my life partner, mate, lawfully wedded husband, soul mate (not a biblical concept per our pastor by the way), and Best Friend!
On a radically different subject...
I identify myself as a straight female human being exactly as I was created to be. I also self-identify as an empath. I can’t help but place myself in your shoes metaphorically, emotionally, and spiritually. I cry tears of joy and tears of pain with you my brother, my sister, my fellow human being. No matter how your beliefs or lifestyle may differ from mine.
This is precisely why I loathe direct sales. It’s extremely uncomfortable and undesirable for me personally. But I feel for those who are working so hard to “push products.” It’s not that I don’t believe and and use our products consistently.
And I’m more than happy to tell you all about them... IF you ask. But I won’t hunt you down or badger you with them. Nope. Not gonna happen. I’m ALL IN with my marriage. I’m ALL IN with my FAITH! But I am unwilling to commit to the business in this same way.
It’s just so much easier for me to tell you all about my Jesus when I have absolutely nothing to gain!
He’s already earned it all for me! He’s already promised me my reward whether or not I tell you all about His great LOVE ❤️
My GOD already shows me favor such as a beautiful magical forest wedding at a venue I did not plan nor pay for! Best of all He has promised me an exciting eternity with the Lover of my soul❣️ I mean... what on Earth could possibly be better than that?!?
And the truth is I will and I do praise Him in the storms! Even when it feels like He is punishing me and I don’t understand the pain and the suffering for me or my loved ones... I will continue to praise His wonderful, powerful, precious name!
For such a time as THIS!
