16 years ago today I married the man of my dreams – Matt Fry. I met Matt when I was a senior in High School and he was a freshman in college. It took 7 years for God to get us together. We never lived in the same town, but through the 7 years God kept bringing us across each other paths. We were in our mid twenties when we finally lived in the same town and were great friends and then started dating and a year later we were married.
The thing that attracted me to Matt was his passion for God. In his passion for God I knew he was going to do big things for God. He wasn’t going to be somebody who sat on the side lines and rocked along, he has always been a big visionary. He was like that as a youth minister and now a pastor.
Another thing that attracted me to Matt was his easy going personality, and now 16 years later the thing that can drive me crazy is his easy going personality. 🙂 Isn’t it funny sometimes the things that attract you can be the very thing that drives you crazy.
Through the 16 years it has been an adventure – never a dull moment. We have experienced the good, the great, and the terrible. But God has grown each of us to be more like Him. Our marriage gets better and better as we work at it. And that is one thing that has been consistent through the 16 years – we are both committed to do whatever it takes to make our marriage great.
This is us after 16 years…
“I love you Matt and can’t wait to see all that’s going to happen in the next 16 years!!!”
