Serendipity...

Serendipitywhen two right things meet at the perfect time, with that being said the story goes....


Tara...
When Fredrick and I met I was a broken vessel. I had given so much of myself in prior relationships. I was  left  feeling exhausted, confused, and angry. Fredrick had put so much effort into  trying to get me to see his kindness toward me, but at the time that seemed pointless. As women, we often pray that God  sends someone that will love us as he does, when that happens we refuse it, and go back to what we're comfortable with. God answered my prayers by sending Fredrick to ease the pain. I fought against it because his type of love was unfamiliar to me. Fredrick's love didn't hurt, it didn't cause me to second guess, and it was true. You see, I was accustom to dating a man "with a little street" in them,  you know a "ruff neck". Fredrick is the total opposite;  he is a "Country boy" who opens my door, and feeds me when I am hungry. He is strong when he needs to be,  soft when I need him to be, and my strength when I am weak. His entire family is this way actually. Yes, he is unique, a rare find.No, he isn't  perfect, and it was actually his imperfections that shaped him for me, and ultimately led him to me. I recall asking him once, " why didn't you leave me?" His response was,  “because my assignment isn't  complete!" Ladies, this man, this man as I shake my head, stayed the course, and loved me past my pain by praying for me, loving my children, and being patience! Another thing is I didn't go looking for him, God lead him to me! God never left my side even in my mess, and he has shown me that in so many ways, and one of those ways is through Fredrick. The bible verse states, "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves a crush spirit!" Psalms 34:18
Fredrick...
I've always been amazed at God's ability to answer our prayers, not on our time, but always on time. What leaves me even more amazed, and in awe, is God's ability to guide us along a path that leads us to that exact place, to that exact person, necessary for our spiritual, emotional, personal, and professional growth, healing, and ultimately happiness. When Tara and I bumped into each other (literally), I had no idea that she was sent by God to lead me out of darkness. This woman has been nothing but a blessing, and inspiration to my soul. She inspires me to be a higher me. She is constantly challenging me to be a better man of God, a better businessman, and a deeper thinker. Instead of judging my past, and pointing out my flaws, she kisses my mistakes, and acts as a healing aid for all of my wounds that are the result of past experiences. I love this beautiful, strong, brilliant black woman, because she is truly a gift from God, sent to lead
me to victory
