After a couple of years being a widow I prayed about my future. I told God that if He wanted me to remarry that was fine and if He didn't that was fine too. But...if He wanted me to remarry I would like a man who likes to fish, play golf and didn't have children. Of course he had to be a Christian.
Now I know God can part the Red Sea but to bring me a husband without children in his 30's or 40's in a town our size was really going to be a miracle! I prayed for no children because I wanted my own.
It was probably 6 weeks later when a mutual friend set us up on a blind date. When I opened the door for the date I thought, "I'm in trouble now! Here is my answer to prayer!" I just didn't think it would be that quick!!
We met in July. He proposed in October! I was trying to sell my house so we decided to wait until it sold within a reasonable time before we marry. Ten days later the house sold! I had to be out in 30 days! So on Dec. 4th, a Wednesday night, after church we married. The church was decorated for Christmas and those at church that evening could join us.
I wanted to share this because we almost didn't see 20 years. Earlier this year Randall had a heart attack in the middle of the night. He had stopped breathing for 20 minutes before EMS could get a pulse. Thankfully God had another miracle for us. Randall is alive and well to celebrate another anniversary!
God is still in the miracle business....just ask me!
