Yes. I'm making up a holiday, but it's one worth celebrating!
32 years ago today, after the Wednesday night Bible Study, I met this tall, towhead, surfing cowboy that loved Jesus.
I felt safe when I met him, like he would always protect me. It was as if I finally found my big brother (in the Lord) even though he was younger than me.
He says it was love at first sight... I just felt so peaceful. I knew we would be friends forever.
The next day he said he would marry me and we began pre-marital counseling.
A few weeks later, he got on one knee and presented the ring with an official proposal of marriage.
Six months and a day from the day we met, we were married!
Thank you to all of you that have prayed for us over the years. Marriage is hard work, and a good one requires constantly dying to self, and lots of forgiving.
Thank you Mark Bromley for the first 32 years of friendship, and 31½ years of marriage.
Thank You Jesus for the example of sacrificial love and equipping us to fight for our marriage commitment.
