4: How They Met | It’s funny how God works things out! A little over a year ago Danielle was invited to First Union Baptist Church for Women’s Day by her Aunt. It was a small church in the middle of nowhere she thought, but that little church made a lasting impression. She was greeted at the door by a handsome gentleman who handed her a single rose and a welcoming smile. | That day, that service, drew Danielle to seek the Lord. At the time she was going through a lot personally and no one knew just how stressed out she was. Things continued to get bad in Danielle’s life and she began to pray and pray. She wanted to get to know the Lord, learn more about his word, and seek his guidance. So she set forth to find a church. A year later she found herself back at this little church in the middle of nowhere and there was that welcoming smile letting her know she found a church home.
5: At the time she noticed Mike, who wouldn’t he is very attractive, but she was not looking for Love. She needed God. Life was spinning out of control for her and on top of everything she was sick. Months later she found herself in the hospital and strangely she was at peace because she had formed a relationship with the Lord, however what she didn’t know was everything was going according to the Lord’s plan. The same smiling face came to the hospital to pray with her and as he grabbed her hands for a word of prayer she knew she had finally found the RIGHT man. She didn’t say a word but let nature take its course.
6: After that they talked everyday, all day and became very close very fast. It was like destiny. Nothing could keep them apart. Not even their baggage.
7: It was not very long before they fell in love.
9: Months gone by and they became inseparable. They begin to ponder marriage. One day Mike turned to Danielle after church and said, “You are going to be my wife one day.” Danielle laughed because they were at a tire place and she didn’t know where such a random thought came from. Mike was letting her know that he knew what she knew since that day in the hospital.
10: Then on January 29, 2011 Mike proposed to Danielle presenting her with the ring he saw her looking at one day while they were out shopping.
11: W i l l y o u m a r r y m e ?
12: Looking back at all they have been through, the good times and the bad times that they both experienced before they met each other you would think they would have given up on love. Even after they started dating they were constantly tested. | BUT THEY REALIZED LIFE WAS BETTER TOGETHER
13: So as Danielle reflected on the time they spent, the date nights, trips, family outings and the family they could build it became clear. Well,take a look for yourself!

36: We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~Maya Angelou
37: Danielle and Michael have both faced many trials and tribulations to get here today. They have loved and lost, experienced joy and pain. They made their share of mistakes and learned valuable lessons along the way, but through it all God has always had his arms around them guiding them and nurturing them. With each mountain they had to climb, they grew . Now they are a little bit stronger and wiser and ready for the path God has set for them. Yes, they both had a past but they look at it as their caterpillar stage. It may not been their best moments but it was needed. What God has taken them through has transformed them and when they both met the metamorphoses was complete. Now they are ready to spread their wings and fly together. We all start as caterpillars but slowly grow Until one day we are all butterflies!
39: And so this couple heads to the future together walking hand and hand with Christ which will insure them that
