“We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best is turning out to be” – C.S Lewis
The “painful best” for Eric meant losing his wife to leukemia and becoming a single father to precious Phoebe (13), Chloe (11), and Sebastien (4).
The “painful best” for me meant years of silence from God re: the question of marriage and family – especially on my 35th birthday this past June.
Though we met 10 years ago in New York, Eric moved to Cleveland, Ohio and I moved to Paris, France. Then, after meeting in New York this past summer, we’re now engaged to be married February 7 2015 and see God’s hand in all the waiting and “painful best” scenarios He allowed in our lives to refine us.
We believe that, as C.S. Lewis writes in The Four Loves “You have not chosen one another, but I have chosen you for one another” and thank Him with all our hearts for choosing to unite our families. We’d also like to thank Wally (my big bro) for making the introduction. He truly is our best man.
