"He has made everything beautiful in its time" -Ecclesiastes 3:11
His Story: It was a cloudy day on July 29, 2017 in Houston TX, with scattered showers expected on the horizon. Despite the overcast and gloomy weather, it ended on the brightest note after meeting Michele Mathew. I still remember like it was yesterday; shortly after alter call (dedication), I saw a little old lady come running my way to her (future) Prince Charming. Little did I know that my life would never be the same after that moment. Michele has taught me patience, forgiveness, and the desire to know Jesus on a personal level. Her faith and love for Christ has given me a glimpse of His unconditional love. Who knew this tiny person could hold the biggest of hearts and bring so much joy to not only myself but to my family as well. I would have never thought I would do long distance, but God had different plans for my life. His perfect timing only showed this imperfect man that great things truly come to those who wait. Relationships never come easy, nor did this. Long distance and all, with God's grace, mercy and our growing love for each other, this relationship turned into being my fairytale. As we start our lives together, I cannot wait for our many adventures, epic naps, highs and lows, but most of all to have the love of my life beside it all. As I stand there on August 14, 2020 awaiting to marry my best friend, partner in crime, and future baby mama I can not thank God enough for His greatest blessing. I ask ya'll to keep us and the next chapter of our lives in your prayers. Her Story: Sijoy and I met in July 2017 at the Mar Thoma National Youth Conference in Houston, TX! As cliché as it may sound, never did I imagine my love story to unfold at a conference I had only decided to attend a few days before. This only goes to show like all things in my life, God's plans are always greater. If there was one word that instantly described Sijoy when we first met, it would be loving. That word only continues to hold true and even greater today. Sijoy loves with the entirety of his heart. He is so freely giving to those he holds close, without expecting anything in return. Being the gentleman he is, he offered to show me as well as my sister Marcy and my cousin Beverly (who both also attended the conference) some southern hospitality and took us out for a night on the town. Now looking back, it was nothing but a ploy to win not only my heart but theirs over as well. The saying "opposites attract" couldn't describe us more perfectly. We have learned through the years that our strengths lie more in our differences than our similarities. Sijoy is my cornerstone, my confidant, my biggest encourager, and the one whom my soul loves. He is the most loyal, supportive, and hardworking person I know. He has shown me a love I did not know was earthly possible. You love me so well Sijoy Varghese, and I could not be more grateful to call you mine. I hope we live to create a life that reflects Jesus in all ways as this has always been our prayer. I cant wait to start this beautiful chapter of our lives written by the author and perfector of love Himself, with you by my side.
