Caleb and Maria

How We Met

It all started outside my church parking lot. I had a long day, sat in my car wishing I had someone to come home to. I earnestly begged and cried out to the Lord saying, “I need help in life! Please have mercy on me and provide that perfect help meet.” I had realized I couldn’t find the right girl on my own and needed the God’s help. Within a month the Lord brought Maria into my life and everything would change forever! We talked as friends over the phone but I never imagined what would happen next. I’m a church pianist and wasn’t expecting to see her on a Sunday morning at my church but while I was playing the prelude she walked in through the back double doors. I rarely mess up but in that moment I lost total focus and didn’t know what to do or think! I couldn’t believe it! The Lord answers prayers! I felt in that moment God saying to me, “all you had to do was ask.”

How He Asked

A year and a half later I would take her to stow lake and propose to her under a bridge by a beautiful waterfall! She loved it! I composed a song for her and obviously couldn’t carry a piano with me so I taught myself how to play the ukulele in a week for this special moment.

Boy, it was worth every second! I secretly invited her family, my family, her friends and pastor to the proposal. As I proposed they were waiting near the bridge and ran on the bridge as she said YES! So memorable! I love her so much! ❤
