She Walks in Beauty

Seventy-two summers ago I met Ann.

I remember the first time I met her.  It was the summer of 1948 and the location was St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Carolina Beach, North Carolina.  She was an extraordinarily beautiful young woman, but it was only a reflection of the beauty within. I do not know how I managed to win her heart, but somehow I did, and three and a half years later we were married in that same church.  We had 63 years together as husband and wife.

She walks in beauty in those heavenly fields that God so lovingly prepared for His children.
