My Oober Godly Guy :)
So the most recent "check" off my bucket list is probably the most incredible of all the "checks"!!! Yep, I GOT MARRIED!!!! I married the most amazing man in the world ... Darrell Floyd Thompson III! :D I met him a few years ago when a couple from my church tried to get me together with his roommate. Needless to say, things didn't work out with the roommate (a wonderful guy who is now married to a wonderful girl named Meg). I lost touch with Darrell when things didn't work out with his roommate, but we reconnected on Facebook in mid-January of last year, started dating ("officially-officially") on March 16th; he proposed on May 21st ... and we were married on September 15, 2012. It's crazy and amazing to think we just hit our 9-month mark as a married couple. 9 months of learning and loving.
My Darrell is an incredible man! I am so thankful for his tender heart and strong convictions. I love his passion and integrity and love for the Lord. I am so proud of the way he constantly strives to please God and be the best man he can be. He is the most patient, perfect man for me. We get to work in youth ministry together, grow together in the Lord, play video games (which I'm not very good at!), watch Lost, play softball on the church softball team, go to our 20somethings Bible study (which we love!) ... all together. I am learning so much about being selfless, about unconditional love, about open communication ... being married to my Darrell is such a gift from the Lord ... after my salvation, my Darrell is the greatest gift of my life!
God is so faithful. And what an awesome thing to check off my list! Wahoo! I got to marry an oober godly guy! Thank you, Jesus!!! :D
