Today is my wedding day! Thirty-two years ago I married a very remarkable man, and I knew at the time I was in for quite a ride. In fact, I remember telling Douglas when we were engaged, something like, “I don’t know where you are going. All I know is I want to go too.”
In the three decades of our marriage, our lives have had some ups and downs, but our marriage never has. If there is one predominant characteristic I had to identify in my husband, it would be steadfastness. He is loyal, he is steady, he is dependable, rock solid; a man of his word, and a man of the Word. That’s what I saw at the beginning, and that’s why I said yes.
When I reflect on my gracious pastor, husband, and friend, I am still amazed at God’s kindness to me. And I still feel the same way about him as I did then: Wait up! I’m coming too!
