|Believe it or not, we’re newlyweds! |
Some 35 years ago we were in love with our past spouses, raising our families in the Lord, and fellowshipping as two couples in many of Bethel’s church activities.
When my husband passed away due to a heart attack, my dear friends Davey & Pattie were there to comfort and support me along with our Bethel family. When Pattie passed due to cancer some years later, I was there to support Davey as he began to walk a new path of grief recovery.
Over time our friendship deepened and to our surprise, romance blossomed! We knew that our path together was marriage and our Bethel community was there to give us their blessing with a wonderful wedding right after a Sunday church service. Now we teach an adult connection class together and serve together as part of Bethel’s prayer staff. We have 5 adult children between us, 11 grandchildren and now even a great-grandchild!
It is a wonderful life that God has provided us because God is ALWAYS good! We are so grateful for all the teaching, support, and encouragement we have received at Bethel for all of these years that still continues to this day, and look forward to being a part of it in the years to come.
