Lord, You’re the best matchmaker. You blessed me with the man of my dreams.  Wow!

Wedding Day 1973

He’s been my best friend for 42 years of marriage. I married him in 1973, but we have been “steady” since 1968.  The first ring he gave me,  he made in his metal shop class. He made it from a stainless steel nut. I wore it on a chain around my neck. That let the world know we were “going steady”.  We’ve been going steady ever since.

My man of many talents

Before I married him, I spent many hours talking to You Lord about him. I sought Your wisdom and advice.  You knew his heart, his mind, and his intentions toward me. You knew if he would love me or just use me. You knew all about his past and his future. You knew the truth about him.

Lord, I spent a lot of time seeking Your guidance and Your will for You knew everything about him and I knew only what he let me see.

You guided me right. Because I followed Your advice I have been very happy with this man You gave me.  Thank you Lord.

I wish I could convince all the young girls to seek Your advice before giving themselves away to a man. You can see into  hearts and You know the intentions of a man’s heart.  If only the young girls would seek You first instead of their sexual feelings. Dogs have sex and mate, but people want love and cherishment. Sex is fun, but true love is most wonderful. Young girls should not give their sex away, but save that special gift of themselves to share with someone who loves them enough to marry them first.

I know all about “parking  and sparking”. Sometimes it got hot and heavy, but because we loved You and valued each other more than sex we waited. Now as an old woman, the memory of our “first time” is a sweet memory.

If only the young girls knew. Waiting only increases  the pleasure of  this dessert.  Anybody can have sex, but real love is willing to make a life covenant commitment before sex.

After all these years of being overweight to obesity, this man still loved me. He watched me change from a girl to an obese woman. I’ve heard the saying, “He stuck with me through thick and thin”. You could say he stuck with me through thick, but he never saw me thin. Until now, this is. Finally I’m becoming the woman of his dreams.

I still can’t get back into my wedding dress, but I  can now get into my “going away” dress after  losing over 75 pounds.

This dress was last worn by me in 1973.

I’m a vintage wearing a 1973 vintage double-knit dress with a double-knit overcoat. Lord, only You could have worked this miracle. I can not praise You enough.

My “Going Away” dress

My daughter, I love you and I want what is best for you.  If only all would seek My will, then I would lead  them  to the best for them.

Yes My child, I did create sex not just for procreation but also to give mankind a taste of true intimacy and love, for I am love. It grieves Me  how evil has perverted what I created as beautiful. As a man and a woman enter into covenant with one another, it symbolizes My covenant with mankind. They consummate their covenant with one another on their wedding  night.

My covenant with them is consummated as each one asks and then allows  Me to enter within their heart.  It’s all about a relationship. Mankind craves  bonding, fulfilling committed relationships. I also crave a bonding  relationship with each one of you.


Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.  Jeremiah 33:3

But seek first  the kingdom  of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33

Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and be enraptured with her love. Proverbs 5:18-19

Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me? Jeremiah 32:27

  1. So for all of us that think that “you can’t lose weight after 40” have no excuses left. Oh, no!!!

    1. God can/ will heal our bodies no matter what our age if we humbly submit to his will for our food- and it is not by following a “diet”, but seeking and following His will.
      It would surprise you to know what I actually eat and still lose weight. Even I am amazed at this. With God, all things are possible. Mark 9:23

  2. Deborah, you were stunning then, and you are stunning now!!! What a beautiful relationship shared by two wonderful people. Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. You look just fabulous, Deborah! Keep up the good work! I have been married to my highschool sweetheart for 10 years also. We have been together for a total of 20! Your blog and story are pretty inspiring!

  4. This was a beautifully written blog, Deborah. I so enjoyed reading it!

    You and your husband seem like such wonderful, kind, loving people with an absolutely stellar marriage. I can only hope to find something like that one day! <3

    You are beautiful, Deborah. You were beautiful on your wedding day, and you are still beautiful today. That dress looks spectacular on you. What a victory to be able to wear something like that again and make it look so good! This is very inspiring, Deborah. You are amazing!


    1. Thank you so much Rachel.
      You are beautiful yourself too.
      It was a great victory for me to be able to put that dress back on again.
      Your victory is just ahead.

  5. Donna, both you and Harry are precious to us. Fred considers Harry to be his best friend and you mine as well. You are the most gracious one I know with the natural gift of making all feel loved by you. I am trying to learn from that gift of yours. Harry is a blessed man. Love and blessings to you both.

  6. Debbie I see you and Freddie every Sunday at church and sometimes during the week. Harry and I have been in your home and ya;’ll have been in ours. I have always noticed that almost all of the time we are together that you and your sweet, easy going husband seem to always laugh at one another and not be so serious. ya”ll do it in such a way that I think is so sweet and I know that the LORD does too. Keep doing it that way, it is working.
    Your friend and sister in CHRIST,
