I texted the wrong number — and met my husband of 12 years
One wrong number landed this caller to Mr. Right. More than a decade ago, Brenda Rivera Stearns was just trying to text a friend when she accidentally typed in the number of her now-husband Isaiah Stearns. “I sent a Bible scripture message to all of my contacts, which at the time I didn’t have many. Maybe only like ten people,” Brenda said. “A few minutes later, the phone number which I thought belonged to a friend replied saying, ‘Amen to that, who is this?'” The 35-year-old, who was trying to share the excerpt with her pal in 2009, now believes it was “an act of fate.” Isaiah would have never received the message if she had sent it any sooner. Isaiah, 40, had just purchased a new phone 30 minutes before receiving the text made in heaven, but the pair were separated by 800 miles at the time. Initially, Brenda, who works as an online content creator, assumed Isaiah’s number belonged to an old friend until he corrected her.
