One Two Three

They say “third times a charm.”  I do not know who “they” are but they are right.  It took two fits and starts before the charm of love settled within our hearts.  Looking back from now’s perspective; it is evident that it was meant to be; that the Lord had locked our paths in an intertwined journey which was irrevocable.  But I get ahead of myself. 
Our whole love affair began with a journey.  Kim Wells and I were on the same trip up Interstate 35 from Austin to Fort Worth with our college group for a special conference.  However, we did not know each other.  We were in separate vehicles.  We came from two different kinds of lives.  The group decided to stop for lunch.  It was at Taco Bell in Waco, Texas of all places that I met the love of my life.  Immediately I began to flirt; and flirt hard.  I flirted all weekend.  I flirted with her during conferences, between sessions, at meals, before bed, and in the hallway.  But when the trip ended and we returned to Austin so did the flirting.  She was an artist and her world might as well been a million miles from mine, locked away in the library stacks.
So, the first meeting came and went.
