How I met my husband by Sandra Orchard
In high school, I was one of the last students to board the crowded school bus in the morning. But this sweet “older” guy would offer me the seat beside him. Day after day. And I soon developed a crush.
Later I’d learn that, at the time, he’d thought I was just a cute kid.
I was a photographer for the school yearbook, so of course, I took his picture, and developed two extra copies—one for him and one for me.
Years later, I’d learn that he gave it to his then girlfriend that went to another school, and I hadn’t known he had!
The next year, he went off to university. I became a believer and set my sights elsewhere.
But two years later, after he’d become a believer, too, he showed up at a community Bible study I attended!
The instant he walked through the door, my heart leapt. I knew he was the one. Later that night, he asked if anyone needed a ride home … me, me!
Less than three months later, he asked me to marry him. I was only 17 so we had a loooong engagement—a secret one for the first year. We’ve now been happily married for 25 years.
