41 years and counting!

Donna and I have been married 41 years today. I met her in Honolulu at the church where her dad pastored. How does one get God to call them to Hawaii? There was a new church plant on the island and I was attending their opening celebration and she was there. I didn’t officially meet her but she caught my attention. The next evening I attended the church where her dad pastored and she was playing a Hammond Organ. There was only one pew left when I arrived, yep, the front one. I caught her eye as I set down, she smiled at me and I was hooked for life. She is amazing, astonishing, astounding, fabulous, fantastic, fantastical, incredible, marvelous, miraculous, phenomenal, prodigious, stupendous, unbelievable, wondrous, divine, glorious, sensational, splendid, superb, terrific, dandy, dreamy, great, ripping, super, swell, tremendous, cool, groovy, hot, keen, neat, nifty, and hundreds of words that haven’t been invented yet. I love her more than I did yesterday and less than I will tomorrow. Yep, and I still love her propinquity!

Here we are on that wonderful day! We haven’t changed much, except those wild glasses. I should have kept them, they are back in style. 🙂

I have told the story of getting you back hundreds of times, with the set up of telling the story of the call you and Woody made.
