Dating Mr. Dy!

Since my early years, my idea of romantic dating was very much ideal – red roses, candle light dinners, expensive gifts, morning breakfast deliveries, 24 hour hotline, a handsome face and most of all a perfect gentleman who will do everything for

you. Few dates from the past somehow made these things happen which led me to believing that my expectations are indeed reality. Until I dated Mr. Dy, things changed.

The guy I had gone on a handful of dates with is no other than Francis, my now husband. The kind of dating experiences I had with him are way way different and very far from ideal. He was, back then, my worst nightmare. He woke me up from my fantasy of having a prince in a shining armor in my own imaginary kingdom. So no more princess in a white horse!

When I first dated Francis, he wore his best – his very self. That was something in contrary to what I expected. In fact the very fist and christmas present I received from him was a Bible and a book called The Power of Forgiveness.

As we go on dating, his story evolve on how God loves him. I often started conversations with my wants and my dreams while he kept on talking about his positive outlook of serving God. One day I asked him “What if I will make you choose – God or me?” Then he replied “I will cry a lot. But even if it hurts, I will choose God over you.” That was painful, really. Because that answer is something I was not prepared to hear.

Dating Francis was tough but a wonderful surprise. It was fun and not superficial. It was real and not a game. It was based on truth and not idealistic. It was God-centered and not money-driven. It was focused on purity not only of the body but also of the heart.

I could not imagine how God would bless me with such a beautiful soul. He showed me life and drawn me closer to God. Now that we are married, our dating never stops. How can I ever forget dating Mr. Dy?

  1. If I have asked my husband the same question you have asked yours, I would surely prefer his answer. I think I’d get more upset if he’ll choose me over God. 🙂
    You’re lucky to have each other! Keep being inspiration to other couples by showing how wonderful it is to have a God-centered marriage. God bless you and your family! 🙂
