As many Christian singles sit and think about who God has picked out as their soulmate, Tami Acree shares her beautiful love story that began seven years ago with a simple tie purchase.
“When I was a sophomore in college, I was challenged to purchase a tie and hang it in my room to remind me to pray for my future husband,” Acree explained.
“For 7 years, it hung on my bed or my dresser mirror and more times than I can count it led me to pray God would encourage, grow, and spiritually develop my someday husband into the man of God I desired.”
The night before the young woman’s wedding day, she recalled the “very special tie” and her desire to give it to the man of her dreams as a momento of their special day.
So, “the night before our wedding, I was with my girls and went to wrap it and we realized it was navy blue, grey, and pink. Our 3 wedding colors!”
The coincidence wasn’t on purpose, Acree added. Saying, “(God) knew even before I bought that tie 7 years ago that Caleb was the man I was praying for and He orchestrated it in His perfect timing!”
“I didn’t tell Caleb to wear it, I just gave it to him like I always meant to (prior to the wedding),” she stated.
But, “as I’m walking down the aisle towards him, one of the things I will always remember is seeing Caleb and seeing he is wearing my prayer-soaked tie.”
So far the post shared by Love What Matters has gotten over 36,000 likes and 5,000 plus comments.
The Virginia couple was wed in December of 2016.
