Show and Tell Friday ~ Our Love Story

It's Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House: http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ Please visit her blog called There is No Place Like Home.


I'd like to show and tell a very special birthday card I recieved when I was 6 years old. It came from my best friend Stacey, who was a boy who lived down the street from me.
Inside you can see his name writen. This is very special to me because when Stacey grew up he called me on the phone. He also came to see me. He asked me if I remembered him. I said that I sure did remember, and that I still had a birthday card from him as well as a picture of the two of us on the front steps. He said he had a copy of that same picture of the two of us on the steps. Which leads me to show you item number two for my show and tell, our wedding announcement!This the picture of the two of us when we were four and five, which we both saved over the years. We used it for our wedding announcement. On the front it says, Stacey and Kathi; we liked each other then.." When you open up the announcement it shows a picture of the two of us sitting on that same front porch....


...and it states, "We love each other now." We were married in 1983. Stacey is still my best friend. I'm so thankful for him.
"Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate." Mark 10:9 I'm so thankful that God brought us together. I love my husband. Have a blessed day ~Kathi

That is one of the best love stories ever! I remember you guys playing together and I remember how years later after Stacey had moved away you wrote in your diary (not that I was snooping or anything - LOL - actually you read it to me) you wrote a prayer to God about what kind of man you desired to marry, he was kind, gentle, loved the Lord, was tall, blond, blue eyed and a cowboy......and guess who came knocking on the door!!!!

Praise God for your beautiful friendship and marriage! You are truly blessed!

Love, Your sister Sharon

Oh I love your story!

I always enjoy hearing how couples met.

And how special that you saved that card and had that picture of the two of you.

My dh and I met when he was 10 and I was 14. We kept in touch (lived 1000 miles apart) through the years...though I had no intention of marrying him - he was too young! And I wanted to be married at 18 - so no way would that work out.

Well I was still single when he finished college - and he was single - and so we got married....more to the story but that is the quick version.

Kathi, Your show and tell brought tears to my eyes! What a beauftiful story and pictures! God has truly blessed you both.

Thank you for leaving your comment on my show & tell today. I too was born in 1960 and feel the same way you do about the people who lived during the war years in the 40's; they did pull together for the greater good. It is sad to think that that may not be the case today, even thought I am sure there are many that would.

Have a great week.
