It started with a prayer and a broken heart. Pablo sat in the Church of the Nazarene and prayed for peace after a break up. He had no idea that God would send him what he prayed for exactly there.. the church. Lorna met Pablo at a youth gathering on a Friday night. If either of them noticed each other, they didn’t talk. It would take a year. Soon they realized that they liked to be around each other during church activities, but that’s where their interactions stopped. They didn’t have a friendship outside of church.
Then came Pablo’s birthday. Lorna was invited to celebrate. Out on the dance floor they shared their first kiss. Euphoria!!! But the next day, Lorna believed that it had been an alcohol induced first kiss. She convinced herself that he would not even remember it. So she sent the cake she had baked him with someone else.
Whether it was alcohol or not, Pablo wanted to kiss her again. He asked her out, but asked her to drive to his house. He told Lorna he had something for her inside. Lorna went in to see a decorated dining room with candles and roses. He had sent his parents to the movies. They spent their time talking and getting to know each other. Lorna knew that day that he was the one. He was selfless, smart, caring and very loving. He even learned to love and accept Lorna’s dogs! Their love was genuine and amazing.
If on their first date, Pablo decorated a living room, he had to go beyond that to propose. He decorated an entire loft in LA. It was a gallery exhibition. The pictures on the wall were of them. Between roses and candles. Lorna said, “Yes,” to the man she loved. Pablo would not say this once but a lot.
” I prayed for a smart, funny, loving beautiful girl and God gave me more than what I prayed for”
