Rosie & Javier
Where do I begin?
Javier and I met through mutual friends 5 years ago. We ran across each other on social media for a while before we started talking/dating. He decided to slip me a little message and it went from there. When we met, I was at a point in my life where I wasn’t looking for a partner, I was working on myself and on my spirituality. I wasn’t expecting him. Lol. I had prayed for him but wasn’t expecting him.
Our first date was to Café Iberico. That’s where I discovered his passion for Spaniard culture and food. Time flew by and I felt like I was on an interview lol. He had a million questions lol. He was the perfect gentleman and the way he would look at me was priceless. He made me nervous, but in a good way.
After a couple months, we attended church together. I think this is what topped the cake for me. I am a big believer of signs and asking God to give me signs and boy did he give them to me. This one is one of the biggest ones. We went to church and as we were standing, singing a song, I was praying and asked God, “Lord if this is the man for me, give me some type of sign.” Well he heard me, because Javier suddenly grabbed my hand and I saw a tear come down from his eye. I could have dropped to the floor! Ask and you shall receive! Another sign was when I let Javier know I was a package deal. It was myself, my daughter and my doggie. Javier has a phobia of dogs and will not go around them. Well he didn’t run, almost did when he met him, but stayed and became friends with my hundred- and sixty-pound dog. I think they both needed each other. Kayla instantly clinged to Javier and the way he loved her made me fall in love with him even more.
He asked me to be his girlfriend and two years later to be his wife. Our engagement was a moment I will never forget. Not to mention we almost didn’t make it there, but God had other plans. It couldn’t have been more perfect! I had prayed for God to send me a good man, a God-fearing man, a man that would love me and my daughter and that was in the same path I was in. I fell short on my request. God has given me so much more. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life next to the man God has sent me.
His Version . . .
After 44 years, I can’t believe they still allow dinosaurs to get married! I was looking for someone to celebrate my wins and be next to me during my losses. Being a bachelor wasn’t fun anymore. Maybe becoming a born-again Christian had something to do with it. In October of 2016 I asked Rosie on a date with the intent to hear her answers to my 3 top questions. I figured, why beat around the bush. Either this date was going to be over early or this night was going to memorable. When I laid eyes on her I saw an angel, my future before me. I just needed to confirm it. So, I began: Do you like Spanish Tapas food? She said No. Strike Number 1. Do you like the Chicago Cubs? Yes, +1. Tie breaker. Do you have a personal relationship with God? She said Yes. Done! Game Over. God has finally put someone on my path because he knew I was ready to cherish and love her, but also put into practice the values and love my father gave my mother and to our family. I finally found beauty, brains, and heart.
God knew that I had wanted my own family and he blessed me in 3 ways. He said, Rosie comes in a package deal. She comes with 6-year-old daughter named Kayla and a dog named Bruno. God said “Kayla already has a biological father, but she needs a father that can give her love. I said done. Then God said, my son to get over your phobia of dogs, Bruno will become your new friend. I said, hold up. Not so fast. Everybody already knows what happened after. I got the privilege of walking him, cleaning his poop,etc.. Lucky me. Lol… All good. God knows why! Bruno showed me unconditional love . When I look back, I must agree he was put in my path for a reason.
Our relationship since day one was a like a messy crossword puzzle that is confusing in the beginning but then flows together as you start bringing the pieces in their right place in their rightful time. It’s no coincidence the Chicago Cubs won their championship that year and after 4 years our relationship is stronger and stronger and always pushing ahead and asking for our heavenly father to guide us and bless us along the way like he always has. It’s also no coincidence that on the day I was going to propose to Rosie we were in a car accident. The enemy was trying to come in between us but, he failed. A candle lit dinner on a boat by the lake with music and fireworks could not be matched. Let alone, American Idol guitarist singing “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran could also not be overpowered. With GOD as your foundation and my LOVE for Rosie! It could also have been Priscilla Rose kicking and telling the enemy not today buddy! Everyone knows what our bundle of joy brings to this world.
I look forward to committing myself to my future wife, Rosie, in our upcoming outdoor wedding ceremony and would love your presence in our special celebration.
