It all started on July 11, 2019.

“Well, hi Les! Nice to meet you. You’re just as handsome in these pictures as you are in the other. I’m very sorry about your wife, I know how hard and painful it is to lose a spouse, as my husband died several years ago. So if you want to send me a text sometime I would be happy to respond. Take care, Susan 🙂”

That was the beginning of something so wonderful, that I never would have believed it could happen.

She is Susan.  GiGi on Our Time.

It has been 2 1/2 years since Terry went home to be with the Lord.  During that time, I wasn’t ready for any kind of relationship.  I did feel a need, but I didn’t want anything… I missed my Terry so much.  I had a fear that anybody I met would be competing with Terry and I didn’t want to put her through that. But, after this time, I feel that (all of a sudden), God burst open the door to my heart.

God works miracles and it wasn’t too long before we moved from talking on the website to messaging to dating, to “I can’t stand being away from her”.

She taught me Bitmoji.   Our first date was awesome.  I asked her to meet me for coffee.

We met as agreed, and sat for a couple of hours just talking.  I was having the time of my life.  So, I looked over at her and asked, “Would you have dinner with me?”.  She said YES!  We walked across the street to a restaurant, ordered dinner, and sat together, talking, holding hands, and I couldn’t stop staring at her.  I wasn’t ready for the night to be over.   So, I looked over at her and asked, “We have a couple of choices.  This has been a wonderful evening, and we could end it her.  However, across the street is a Wine Tasting Room that, I know, has a great musician playing.”.  She said let’s walk across the street.  Well, after another 2 1/2 hours of listening to the music, talking, enjoying a little wine and a lot of each other our coffee date turned into 6 1/2 hours of wonderment.

During the next week, we got together several times. And, that continues to this day.

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t miss her.  We text/talk constantly, but that is not enough.  I feel that God has is hand in this.  He is directing me towards a lady that compliments me in so many ways.

It is kinda funny.  After my grand daughter met her she made a comment that Susan reminded her of Grandma (Terry). That is a very good compliment

I pray that He continues to control and bless this relationship.  Right now, I am seeking a deeper relationship with her so that the roots of our future life can be well grounded.  Where ever He takes me is where I want to go.

So, now, my playlist is one of new love.  Meeting and getting to know Susan.  Holding her, protecting her, taking care of her.  Developing that Intimacy of a deep relationship and waiting on God to see where this goes; eagerly anticipating His direction.
