Shawna and I have been dating for 6 weeks. It's hard to imagine that it's only been that long. A lot of ground has been covered. And we are both quite committed to a relationship together. I think the term "soulmate" could begin to describe how we feel about one another.
We have both essentially been alone for the last 10 years. And neither of us has had much experience in relationships. So for us... this is pretty new. We've never really been here before. It's kind of funny that two 50-year olds could meet and find romance that feels very much like a first-of-a-kind experience. But it seriously does to both of us.
God is good. As we talk about how each of us feels about things, and our life experiences, it seems as if He's been preparing us for each other. I had given up on the idea that there is one perfectly-matched person out there for each of us quite a long time ago. I just stopped believing it. Sort of like you stop believing in fairy tales.
Well in all honesty... my relationship with Shawna has made me a believer once again. At least I believe that God is still in the match-making business. There is no other explanation for what has been happening between us. It's as if we were designed for each other.
I think I'll keep with my recent tradition of linking to songs that capture the mood of my post. Here's one of my favorite love songs:
