Forever, and Ever Amen!

This is a story of eternal love, a love that spanned the trials of separation and hardships.

Our story begins with two small children, about 3 or 4 years old.  Their parents had been pregnant with them at the same time and they were born a few months apart.  They had grown up together through nursery, Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible school, and even had chicken-pox together.  Their parents had been great friends so they had many times together on vacation, holding hands on the beach and just getting to know each other. Her with her big brown eyes and him with his baby blue ones, they just knew they were destined to be together.

But one day in 1972, at the young ages of 6, their lives were shattered as the girl’s family changed churches and they were thrust apart never to see each other.  They both went on to live their lives and have their relationships.  The boy got a job and the girl moved 600 miles away to go to college.

Then one day in 1987, after 15 years of separation, the two paths crossed again.  Through bizarre circumstances, they found themselves, now at the age of 21, at the same Halloween party.  They immediately felt those same feelings of affection that they had known as small children.  They quickly moved toward each other and began to get reacquainted. 

By the end of the night, they knew that they wanted to pursue the relationship.  On their first date it became quite evident that those “small child” feelings had blossomed, as the boy, now a young man, sang this song to the young woman.  

 They dated for a couple of months then the young man asked this young woman to be his bride.  She, of course, was thrilled to agree to do so and they were married 5 months later on June 11, 1988.

Now here they are, 20 years later.  It is strange how they haven’t even seemed to notice that a whole lot of years have passed.  They still sit close whenever they can, hold hands, choose to do things together than with other people as much as possible and have become each others best friend.  They are still as happy and as much in love as they have ever been.  They have increased their family to now include three wonderful daughters and their lives have truly been one worthy of a fairy tale. 

She knows he is her Prince-Charming who literally saved her life and he treats her as the Queen of the Kingdom.  They can’t believe that these past 20 years have come and gone, but the memories they have made and the love that they share will continue on throughout many, many more generations to come. 

 I love you Honey!  Forever and Ever!

Happy 20th Anniversary!
