One Year With Lastheart

Updated on November 18, 2014

A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

It has been one year since we stood together on a rock and said vows before God and witnesses. I fell in love with the person you all know as Lastheart. Our first knowledge of each other came from a web site we are both members of called Stumbleupon. We are both Christians and sharing Christ filled web sites and pictures is a big part of our lives, We grew closer and closer until we decided we needed to meet in person. I hopped on a jet from St Louis, Missouri and flew to Luis Muñoz Marín airport in Carolina, Puerto Rico. As I found my luggage, I was looking for her and suddenly, there she was. I trotted with my bags and when I reached her they fell to the ground and she fell into my arms; needless to say, I am still in Puerto Rico.

Maria (Lastheart) and I spent days together and knew we love each other. On July 28th,2011 we took witnesses and we went to a very romantic location. We gave vows to each other in front of God and the witnesses. We are married! I know some may not deem that marriage, but we do. You see, God is everything about everything! When you make a vow to Him, it is sealed on heaven and earth. I see many people have huge, elaborate weddings without God involved and they are many times divorced soon afterwards.

We have been going strong one year and we pray for many, many more. The only thing that will separate us is death.

Following is our first video when our vows were made one year ago. Then scroll down and see what we have done.

Breathtaking Puerto Rico
Breathtaking Puerto Rico

This is a beautiful book that Lastheart and Froggy213 authored, photographed and published together.

A copy of this will look wonderful on your bookshelf and can help you show off Puerto Rico to others.

 

It has been an amazing, wonderful year!

I have learned many things from this beautiful wife of mine and I believe that she has learned a few things from me. I have discovered that we are a match made in Heaven. We compliment each other which has allowed us to break through fears and prejudices.

God is using us and has blessed us.

Lastheart and I put together this video. A very nice gentleman (Dieng Ibrahima) had sent us a gift of these outfits. They are Taureg clothing. The Taureg are a nomadic people in the Sahara region of Africa. We cherish this gift and we felt it quite proper in using them in reaffirming our vows. It was quite fun walking through the park and the stares of people wondering what we were.

Please watch this video and I will tell you more after.

A Special Letter To Lastheart

My Love,

When you are sad, I feel sad and when you are happy, I am happy. I just knew from the day at the airport (even before) that we were meant for each other. I know you feel the same.

I wish so much that I could put in words all my feelings for you, but even I, a frog with many words, cannot find all the proper words to say.

Just know that I adore you; I love you and I want the very best for you in all things. I will do my best to be the man and husband you need.

With that, as I said as I look over at your beauty, I am speechless. I, instead of trying to find more words at this time, before I publish this, will walk over and give you a delicate kiss and a mighty hug and when you read this, you will know. You will know that I am yours for ever or as long as you will have me.

I love you Lastheart!

All yours,

Froggy213

Our Love

There were many that were vocal about their apprehension of our relationship at first. Right now, I say to all of them:

LOOK AT US NOW!!

Lastheart and I have experienced so many things. There are many hubs here that will guide you as we moved along through this year. Yes, there have been a difficulty or two, but through God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we are standing strong in each others arms.

I am sure that if you read my love's hubs and follow through mine for this year, you will see how our love has grown. You can see all we have experienced. There are many people here in Puerto Rico that have not seen the whole island. Maria and I have visited every pueblo with the exceptions of Culebra and Vieques which will be soon.

Journey with me through my hubs since I have been here; of course, I have written others, but these are about our love and our fun times together. You can also check out all the pueblo hubs too.

  1. Romantic Walk
  2. Homegrown

That is just a few. I have discovered that I have to have Lastheart near me at all times. When we are apart even for just a short time, I feel a depression and a need to have her near.

God has blessed us. Our daily Bible readings and the conversations we have keep me alive and feeling young. I could go on and on and on. The main thing is:

I dearly love Maria Magdalena Ruiz O'Farrill. I adore her and just have to have her touch, smile and laughter around me. I thank God that He brought us together.

There are many places for couples to meet; we met on-line and we are one year married with many more coming.

I ask your prayers that we stay strong in Christ and that God's will is done in our lives and in our relationship.

It HAS been an amazing year and I look forward to the next.

I know the pictures in the video went somewhat fast, so I will share them all again. You can see our love and may those in relationships be blessed with similar blessings that Lastheart and I have together.

God bless you all.
