A year ago today...

...we met for the first time.
It was just an ordinary day, cool and overcast, filled with the usual activities, and ending with another in a long line of interviews~ who knew that love was coming into my life.
I can't say I was won over by stunning good looks~ first impressions said "modest, plain, and dated". After a few minutes getting to know each other, I was able to see beyond the outward appearances into a heart full of welcome, comfort, peace, and friendship.
As I drove away, I knew that we were meant to be together.
A year has passed; I have seen God's grace become manifest, convoluted and treacherous paths made smooth, promises made and fulfilled, dreams and hopes made reality. We are together each day, morning and evening, and I am humbly grateful for the unexpected delight and friendship I have found.
