only help my unbelief


Love and Limeade Slushes

Over the next 16 weeks, I’m going to rewrite the story of how I met Christian. If you look hard, you can find most of the story around the blog, but I’d rather start from scratch and stretch it out.

[I] Birth Control Emily Starts a Blog
One of the most important people in the story, besides Christian, is introduced. You’ll also find out where she got her unique nickname.

[II] The Curious Tale of Mississippi Guy and Derek Webb
Before I met Christian, there was this other guy I met on the Internet. I thought he was the guy for whom I’d been waiting my whole life, but God had other plans.

[III] Sometimes a Blog Comment Surprises
All it took was a reference to Derek Webb, Indelible Grace and Reformed Theology, and I was hooked. In other words, our relationship started in a very non-traditional way.

[IV] Letters, Brownies and Perfect Strangers
If my verbose correspondence didn’t scare him off, then surely he would appreciate oven-baked chocolate, right? In this segment, Christian and I set the date of our first in-person meeting.

[V] In Which Everyone Thinks I’m Crazy
Meeting a complete stranger in their town after driving for six hours is generally the beginning to a C-grade horror movie. In my case, it just ended up being awkward.

Lovely story-in-progress. 🙂 I saw your comment on Shannon’s (Rocks In My Dryer) blog, so I thought I would stop by to say hello — I met the love of my life online, too.

At the time, he was living in Texas and I was living in Florida — a ten hours’ drive from my dorm room to his. We will be celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary soon, and are very grateful that God decided to introduce us to one another through this thing called the Internet.

[…] married, but Christian and I have had a fairly unique relationship. I’ve described how we met at length, but on Thursdays in October, I hope to take little snapshots of our relationship over the past […]
