“Ten Years Ago Today”

“Ten Years Ago Today”

Ten years ago today the Lord
Displayed His providence
And smiled upon a single man
Through planned coincidence.

O what gladness fills my heart
As I think of when we met!
Neither of us knew the course
That our wise God had set.

“My name is Stacie” were the words
That forever changed my life.
And while I did not know for sure,
I believed I met my wife.


On an evening ten years ago today, I met Stacie on the campus of Houston Baptist University.  We spent that evening with her friends, going to Randalls, Starbucks, and Half-Price Books.  That evening changed my life.  Our conversation continued into the night, and we haven’t stopped talking yet.
