“Just to say that we were blessed and inspired by just looking at them, their tattoo, and their faith and love for God,” she explains. “And I did! I excused myself and introduce myself and my husband to them, and just tell them how happy and inspired we are looking at them.”
Michelle says she and her husband found out that the couple had just gotten married a few months back, and they both serve in the United States Army.
“Not only that they want to serve their country together, [but knowing] they also want to serve God together…that is what their tattoo really means. And that is the best #RelationshipGoal ever!”
Michelle thanked the couple for the beautiful reminder of how God should be the center of their relationship, and how we are all called to serve selflessly.
But their interaction didn’t stop there!
The couple was overwhelmed by Michelle’s kind words, as they had not realized the impact that their tattoos and actions had had on someone else. Then they asked Michelle and her husband if they could pray for them.
“For the first time in our entire lives, never had we experienced strangers praying for us! Inside that cafe, all four of us held each others hands, bowed our heads as these [sic] beautiful couple from the US army prayed for me and my husband! They prayed that we may always be blessed, and that we may continue to be a blessing to everyone else, and that may our love for God prosper and grow just as how God’s love and grace overflows in our lives. How amazing that moment is!”
Michelle says she knows that moment was not an accident, but a divine appointment.
“God brought us together there for a reason. God always has His special way of reminding us of His great love for us.”
Michelle’s excitement is a beautiful testimony to the love she witnessed — both that of the couple and that of God. It’s so crazy to see the incredible ways God can use a “normal” lunch to show people who He is.
