Since we are on the wedding theme...

An email I found in my mailbox this morning:

Well, today is my wedding day and I thought to myself, "Self, you
should email Ags", so I am. I hope your life in Australia continues to
be blessed. I don't know if I've told you this, but I officially
consider you my "matchmaker". If you had never introduced me to (and believe me, I never would have found it on my
own), I would never had met S! Therefore you are DIRECTLY
responsible for this union! How about that?

Is that not the coolest thing ever? I won't disclose his identity but I wanted to post this here because I think it's so encouraging. I am so happy for both of them. He's really one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet and while I have never met his wife, I have heard that she is a wonderful girl. I hope this is an encouragement that anything is possible and while not everyone finds their other half on the internet, the wonderful miracle of meeting them can happen at any moment.

I have to say that I am just a little part in this link that my friend is mentioning. Really, the mother of all christianmingle ismy dear friend, who met her husband on the website, then Neil and I found each other, then F's friend V met her husband from NZ on the site, then this friend met his wife S.

I have to be honest because there have been people along the way who tried it and decided it's not for them, which is cool. I remember it didn't work for me right away either. It took time, common sense and patience to meet Neil. And once I did, I was called "crazy" more than once. But it was all perfect and I know that God's hand was in it. One, because I asked Him to, two, because two people meeting and falling in love while living on two different continents just seems a little... "crazy"...

Great post! I think besides showing how mysteriously and crazy why not, God works, it's always encouraging to hear real, amazing, happy examples of these kind of godly matchmakings:) And you have my permission to use my identity every time because I am happy, proud and in love head over heels with the man God brought in my life through CM. Miss you!
