This is a very personal post, but some of my readers will appreciate it.

There was a kid in a school for missionary kids in Kenya. In his class was a very pretty girl, and that boy noticed that. As time went by, he developed a secret crush for the pretty girl, but he never told her or anyone else.

There was a young man in college who met a lot of great and lovely Christian girls, but he could not forget the girl from his school days. There were none quite like her.

There was another young man, the brother of the pretty girl, who stopped by the college one day, and said, "If you have any interest for my sister, you need to write her." The best advice I was ever given..... thanks Don.

The young man did write, and he sent Valentine candy, and he called and called and called the pretty girl.

The young man graduated from college, packed all his possessions in his big Dodge, and he headed for Michigan to see what the pretty girl would think.

The day he arrived, the pretty girl took him off to a wedding, and the next Saturday to another wedding. The young man soon realized the pretty girl was in love with him, and he bought her a ring. She is still wearing that ring today.

Tomorrow we will celebrate 50 glorious years in Christ and together. The track has been rough at times, there have been lean years, Army years, missionary years, a Communist coup in Ethiopia, but always we had each other. 

In Christ, we have survived all that came our way, and so has our love.

Proverbs 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
