Mike and I got engaged after meeting each other and dating for about 6 weeks. He was a pastor’s kid that lived the straight and narrow….simply put, I had not. A couple of weeks into the engagement and wedding planning, I was weighed down by what I knew I had to confess to Mike. So one evening he came over and I spewed it all out in all its ugliness. Mike asked 2 questions, one – was there more? Two – what was on my finger? After realizing he meant the engagement ring and not some bug crawling on me, he expressed his love for me and covered me with God’s grace. 13 years and 2 beautiful kids later, I still think of God showing His grace through Mike.
