Two of Us, Again!

No amount of time and no one can replace my dear, sweet Bonnie, who left this life and entered into eternal life on May 18, 2015. These many months since then to the present have tortured me relentlessly. Bonnie knew better than me that it would be so, and a couple of weeks before she died, Bonnie told me that she wanted me to marry again.

On December 16, 2015, Robert Noland passed away, incidentally also because of the dreaded disease of pancreatic cancer. He left behind Bonnie’s best friend, Martha Lynn, who painfully grieved continually. Martha and Bob have been precious and close friends of Bonnie and me for decades.

To the surprise of few family members and Christian friends who know us both—and yet a surprise to the two of us—Martha and I have found comfort from our sorrows and loneliness in each other. Lord willing, we will wed on January 1, 2017 at her home in Ocala, Florida.

Immediately, we will travel together to stateside preaching appointments that I have already scheduled. In addition, on January 24, we will leave together on jet airplanes to labor in Guyana, South America through March 9. As soon as we return to the USA, we will travel to additional stateside appointments that I have scheduled. Maybe sometime thereafter we will pause somewhat and take a little honeymoon.

I never imagined that again there would be two of us waddling through life toward eternity together. There are two of us—again! We purpose to glorify God, edify our fellow man and help each other make it to heaven—together! Though not desiring any gifts or presents, we do covet your prayers and well wishes.

BTW, two pictures accompany this post. Martha likes one better than the other, and I like the other one. Can you guess which is which?
