growing up I never would have thought it.
I always thought he was cute, but it a little brother kind of way.
he was always the goof ball on church trips.
the cute drummer boy at church.
my best friends little brother
something happens to little boys.
they become men.
men who open doors for pretty girls.
who tell them they are beautiful.
i reached a really hard part of my life.
down on my luck.
given up on love.
told myself it didn't exist.
all men are scum.
my best friends turned their back on me.
people stabbed me in the back.
i couldn't help the person i'd become.
i was helpless
i did something that i thought i'd never do.
on march 28th of 2009 i posted on facebook:
"Megan Wynn needs more men in her life. Accepting applications at 224-3110"
i immediately received a text from an unknown number:
"likes long walks on the beach and journey"
"name and date of birth"
unknown sender replied:
"ronald david volnoff, jr, march 12 1990"
my heart sank.
then it pitter pattered.
i was glowing
i knew what God was up to.
the sender, better known as RJ, was called to be a worship leader.
i knew that i had been called to the ministry, somehow
we texted and called and talked and flirted for a few weeks.
we talked about marriage within the first week.
we knew we wanted to be united before God in marriage.
i'd never been so sure of anything. ever.
we spent our weekends together
i cried every Sunday when i headed back to my college.
i was incomplete without him in my world.
January 30th 2010
we walked around ASF
the place where we first held hands
i goofed off, giddy and happy. unknowingly...
he stumbled around nervously
next thing i know...
he's on his knee.
asking me to be his bride.
we were married on November 20, 2010 just a little over a year after i received that text from an unknown sender.
we have a love that makes us giddy with excitement.
we have a bond that no one could understand.
we know each others secrets.
we are each others secrets ;)
it's that kind of love that makes you want to carve your initials into a tree.
today i'm sporting a necklace that captivates everything i just told you.
it's a beautiful piece by amanda lynne designs
that i've been coveting since february.
do you have a love that makes you feel like a teenage girl?
if so, you need this.
it brought me to tears opening the package
i'm in tears writing this post.
love does that to you.
