I got a lovely email today from a reader in Saudi Arabia. Take a look at what he had to say.
I hope you are doing well. I got the chance to read your impressive story “Short Distance Romance,” from ‘The Dating Game’ book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul. It came to me several days ago from their daily newsletter to which I subscribed more than 8 years ago. True love is not something we find, it is something that finds us. I was impressed with the patience of the guy, who sat only 3 pews away from you, when he finally introduced himself to you, telling you all you had to do was to say hello. If we did not express our feelings for the fear of losing a beautiful relationship, we will certainly lose the beautiful relationship by not expressing our feelings. God puts the right person in the right place at just the right time for a reason that we might not be able to realize for the time being or even until it is too late. What we call ‘coincidence’ is an extraordinary plan perfectly arranged by Him in an amazing way. But His plans are always having positive consequences in our lives.
Blessings to you and your family,
