Sometimes we don't see it coming.

As I was sitting in Sunday School with Dennis 5 days ago I suddenly noticed the date on my iPad. 
I pointed to it and looked up at Dennis. 

He said, "What?....oh is this the day of the first email I sent you? Oct 11th?" 

He remembered, too.

Right before Bill died he signed us up with AOL.
I had no interest in the computer (it was 1996), but after Bill died,
my friend Wendy insisted I learn to use the internet and sat right there coaching me along,
as I was saying to her, "I have no use for this."

Yep, life got into place, awaiting his appearance.

Do you ever wonder how many things are happening to you now, to prepare you for later?

Think about it, or go back in time and notice what proceeded big events in your life.

What a great post!!! I loved getting to read Dennis' first email to you. It sounds just like him. :)

It does sound like him doesn't it...very exacting and to the point. Much like all those police reports he filled out for decades. But I was attracted to that letter because it was well thought out and he could spell and write in complete sentences....unlike most men on LDSSO. Not that I normally care at all how a person spells, or even notice it much.....but this one set him apart from the rest.
