A Perfect Match

On that day ten years ago we looked deeply into one another's eyes and said those wonderful two words, "I Do"!

Today we celebrate the fact that we'd say them all over again. "For me God hath provided thee" is the phrase inscribed inside our wedding bands. A perfect description of how our two lives came together.

I tried looking for someone on my own before and it never worked out, but as soon as I took my hands off and said, God, will you be my Matchmaker, this wonderful man came into my life just months later. I came home from work one day, and there he was... standing in the garden. It turned out that Jean, my dearest friend and housemate, and Rick had both enrolled in the same Master Gardener Course. Rick, having given Jean a ride home from class that first day, was in our backyard, inspecting the garden with Jean.

When you let God pick him for you, He does it perfectly. Sometimes, it still boggles my mind how beautifully our lives came together, how we fit hand in glove. Truly, a match made in heaven.

Happy Anniversary, dearest Husband! You are still the most wonderful man in the world, and I'd still follow you to the ends of the earth. Joy! Joy!

With all my heart,

"Faith, Hope, Love...
the greatest of these is Love."


  1. What a wonderful day this is! Congratulations, Rick and Brenda! To be honest, it is hard for me to believe that it is 10 years already! Enjoy and celebrate the day!


  2. Congrats you two! That's just wonderful that you've been lucky enough to find each other. God does provide if we let him, that's for sure. Beautiful picture!

  3. Hey David, it is hard to believe, I agree. It's interesting that the weather today is similar to that day, warmish and hovering a few degrees above freezing. I remember being outside without a coat.

    Dar, Thanks for the wishes. I thought about titling the posting "Is there kissing in this story?" Did you ever see Princess Bride?

    Lezlie, Appreciate you getting in touch today!

  7. Happy Anniversary to you both. 10 years does fly by fast doesn't it!

  8. Congratulations and happy 10th anniversary... may you have many more happy years together!

  9. Thanks to everyone who shared their wishes.... We enjoyed our day and ended by going out for a scrumptious dinner at a Greek restaurant.
