…years ago today was a cold day. It was a Friday and I had been home from work for a week with bronchitis and then a stomach problem caused by antibiotics. Still, I went to my ever so small church and vacuumed and hung flowers from the special poles on the end of the pews where candles would be lit in just a few short hours.
I then did some last minute shopping, picked up my seven year old daughter from school and went home to prepare. DD was bathed and dressed. My best friend came over to help me dress and my "adopted sister" carefully applied my make-up.
Around 6:45 a limo pulled up in front of my home and we were whisked off to church. When we arrived, I realized I had forgotten something very important! We sped back, leaving some very concerned people, one in particular, back at the church.
Nineteen years ago today, Himself and I were married. The articles forgotten back at my place? Wedding bands. One child, a home and a grandchild later, we are still here to tell the story! There is so much else I could write but I will leave it as it is. Our ups and downs are in the past and new ones to come all under the grace of our Savior. Without Him, this story would have ended long ago.
Happy Anniversary, ATB! fudd
