Today David and I are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. Katherine, my maid of honor, sent us a gift this week.
If you don’t know our story, we met online in 1996 via America Online (AOL). No one knew anyone who had met that way at that time and we were the least likely type of people to do such a thing. There was no way to look people up online. There was no way to share a photo of yourself. You could do a direct message chat. That was about it. There was definitely no mobile phone like on the ornament. I wasn’t looking for David, but I believe an angel was in the room, prodding me on one night to where I found him. Truly.
Our marriage was so unusual, The Grand Rapids Press featured us in a newspaper article.
God Delights In The Details Of Our Lives, right down to buying the bridesmaid’s dress exactly one year to the day before my wedding when I hadn’t even met David. Nine years later, after many long years of praying, we finally discovered I was pregnant – on our ninth anniversary.
God has been very good to us and I give thanks.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
