Happy Day

I've wondered all my life who I was going to marry. I used to call my mom and talk to her about my relationship at the time, and we'd discuss how things were going or not going. She'd always tell me I'd know who the right guy was when it was time to turn my heart over forever. Although I trust my mom very much, I always questioned her on this topic. Before I met Brandon I'd never been madly in love, and whenever marriage was brought up, I'd get nervous and wonder where the feeling of excitement and assurance was, that according to my mom, I was suppose to be experiencing. I started to wonder if I'd ever know w/o a doubt that I was suppose to marry a certain person. Somewhere around this time I met Brandon. Things started out a little rocky. The following are facebook messages we sent back and forth to one another before we became friends:)

Brandon Redfern September 29, 2008 at 1:27am to whom it may concern, My name is Brandon Redfern. I have recently moved to the Newport News/Hampton area and sadly I have no friends :( Would you consider accepting this request? I am so sad and lonely all the time. And you seem like such a nice person that would never refuse giving me a ride to a church dance. Click accept if you will be my friend ... if you click do not accept then it's quite possible that you could go to outer darkness. It's up to you.
Whitney Redfern September 29, 2008 at 11:32am Brandon Redfern, After careful consideration and long deliberation, I have decided to accept your request. I wouldn't worry too much about not having friends because there are many kind people who are always looking to fellowship namely Leona who would love more than anything I'm sure, to receive a ride from you. To help you on your quest for friends I will step aside from picking her up and suggesst to her your willingness to make friends. Anyways, within a relitively short time I'm sure you'll have a number of friends.whit

Brandon Redfern September 30, 2008 at 12:54am Whitney Dearest, I accept with the sincerest of gratitude that response. My heart exploded with joy when I saw the kindness hidden behind those words. I am so excited at the possibility of getting to know this Leona you speak of. I feel that this new friendship formed will blossom to being the best of friends or possibly blood enemies. Im not quite sure. time will tell ...Brandon
Whitney Redfern September 30, 2008 at 2:17pm Mr. Redfern, I have noticed the word dearest in you previous message and as I think back to the first reply I sent you I don't recall saying we could be lovers or even dear friends. I accepted the request to be your friend to lift your confidence and encourage you along the path to make other friends. I'm sorry you misunderstood my intentions. As for you and Leona... I feel it is more likely you will become the best of friends since you seem to have a lot in common strictly based on appearance. And you are right, time will always tell. Ms. Keables
Brandon Redfern September 30, 2008 at 2:47pm Ms. Keables (and I emphasize the Ms.)It has become crystal clear your intentions in this whole process. On the the topic of appearance, after prayerful consideration, its quite obvious u and the beast will make most excellent lovers. As for my attempt to reach out I only did so for the strict reason of u being the homely girl in the ward. I took this approach as I did the other night at the dance when I asked the 300+ lbs girl to dance. You have now become dead to me. Your inner ugliness has now matched your outer ugliness. This has become personal. Mr. Redfern;)

Whitney Redfern October 1, 2008 at 2:40pm Mr. Redfern,You seem quite belligerent and I hate to encourage that but you must be corrected. You can not receive revelation for me, and being a member of the church I would have thought you already aware of this, but you have disappointed me in several ways thus far, so really it is no surprise. As much as you'd like to think "the beast" and I will end up together, that decision will remain between he and I. I thank you to keep your nose out of others business. Another matter I'd like to discuss is that of your last comments to me. You said "Your inner ugliness has now matched your outer ugliness. This has become personal." I do not understand the nature of these comments for I have never asked for you opinion nor do I value it. Please keep comments such as these to yourself for they, along with you, mean nothing to me.
Ms. Keables
Brandon Redfern October 1, 2008 at 5:21pm Ms. Keables, It is obvious that you lack the gospel knowledge necessary to have any sort of gospel conversation with me, for I am supreme to you in every way. The Lord and I have a special connection that I dont expect anyone like you to understand. As for my opinion, you are 100% correct that you don't need to value it, but for your own sake I strongly suggest that you do. I, unlike you, have a completed college education and much knowledge to share with the world. Please don't for one second think that it is any courtesy on my part but more of a responsibility to share my God given strengths and abilities w all. So humble yourself and open your mind. by doing this you will have much better luck with men like the beast. My prayers will continue to be directed toward you for I feel so much pity inside for your present state. Mr. Redfern

Whitney Redfern October 7, 2008 at 2:14pm Mr. Redfern, While it may be true that I do not fully understand every gospel principle I do however understand those involving pride, arrogance, selfishness, and conceit. I am glad you have supreme knowlegde but in these subjects you're clearly lacking. Having a complete college education shows that you know a great amount, but with regards to me, you know little. So please, do not thrust your opinion on me when it is greatly undesired. As for me needing to humble myself to have better luck with "the beast," humbling ones self is always good, but luck is not necessary when I have natural skills. Ms. Keables

Haha I was obviously joking in these messages but Brandon wasn't quite sure, so things didn't start up between us right away. About a month later we started dating. Since then it has been a blur of events and throughout everything, I was excited, happy, and in love. My mom ended up being right in the end. When I met Brandon, I knew it was him. And the most amazing part was for the first time, everything felt perfect. I love him.
