I wasn't really 'looking for love'...

...but 26 years ago God's providence smiled on me when I noticed a very nice-looking guy across the room during a Sunday School teachers' training class. We ended up sitting together during the evening service, and then stood outside in the parking lot and talked for at least two hours--we had SO much in common!

However, just weeks after that I was engaged--to someone else! It's a long story, of course. God certainly writes some interesting and unexpected chapters in our lives! :-)

Even so, a little over a year later I said "I do" to that very nice-looking guy I met in the teachers training class. Next to my salvation, my husband has been God's greatest gift to me.

Aw, is it your anniversary? Congratulations!

Denny and I were apart for about 12 years from the time we first met till we were married. You're right -- God does write some interesting chapters in our lives.

Happy Anniversary?! Hey on Sunday at church I met two teenage girls from Russia that a family in our church adopted. They just became U.S. Citizens on Saturday...
Blessings on your marriage and your family.

Ladies: sorry for the confusion, but it is the 'anniversary' of our meeting--I'm a sentimental fool!

Our 25th wedding anniversary is in August--we haven't decided when or how to celebrat THAT! :-)

ellen: how long have the girls been here?!!??
