For Tombi and Demetrius the number 21 has special significance. Tombi met Demetrius on the 21st day of her Daniel Fast. She had been praying that she would meet a great man for her and her son. It just happened that 3 weeks earlier Demetrius also prayed that he would meet his wife. When a storm left Tombi and her son stranded outside Demetrius’ house, it seemed as if God had answered their prayers. After a whirlwind romance, Demetrius proposed to Tombi 11 months later!

How They Met
We met January 28, 2014 in the Winter Storm in Birmingham, AL. Both of us knew it was nothing but the strong act of GOD that brought us together and we have been inseparable ever since. I met Demetrius on the 21st day of the Daniel Fast. I had been praying that I would meet a great man that would be great for me and my son. Later Demetrius revealed to me that he had prayed 3 weeks prior which was also 21 days and the Lord told him he would meet his wife in 3 weeks. Well we did meet by an act of GOD and we have been so blessed to have each other and it has been a tremendous blessing. I was stranded and could not get up the hill to my home so I had to leave my car at his house just below the hill. My son went to the door to knock and Demetrius came outside and we met from there.
The proposal was on 11/23/2014. He surprised me when he got home from work and asked me to be his wife. I told him I did not want anything spectacular, but I wanted that private moment. I did tell him whenever he proposed I wanted him to put the Neo hat on because I always thought he looked very nice and stylish in that hat so he did put that hat on for me! LOL
The theme of the session was an intimate date for two which featured a sweetheart tabled decorated with a cupcake bouquet for the lovers to share. They also shared a toast to their future while gazing into each others eyes. After the intimate setting for two, they enjoyed a fun filled evening of bike riding as they enjoyed every moment of the love they share laughing and being each other's best friend.
