As the saying goes, what is meant to happen, will always happen.
It all began on that fateful Wednesday evening, Jb and his family were invited to attend a prayer meeting in the church where Rachel goes to. A blessing, it is, to chanced upon true love in the house of God. A friendship and unexpected fondness that flourished through faith.
Love, when it’s real, is always willing to wait. willing to give. Jb have always had a crush on Rachel. It was an apparent mutual understanding that has been hampered a couple of times.
In love, some days can be pretty memorable, but the historic ones are those when we finally get to say what needs to be said. When we let our guard down and be our most vulnerable selves. When we have the courage to ask without expectations, and to give in with no hesitations. Feb. 17, 2012, and the rest, as they say, is history.
But it never came easy. Since Jb’s family is residing in Canada, the couple endured years of long distance relationship. Years of exchanging emails and phone calls. Years of spending anniversaries apart. Years of lack of physical contact. Years of waiting. hoping. believing.
Across time zones and continents, what are the odds?
It was difficult. quite a struggle. Does a long distance relationship work? A big YES to that!
Rachel and JB. Their story is not just a testimony of love and commitment. It is a testimony of God’s grace. Of God’s doing, in HIS perfect timing.
