It is World Marriage Day - What is Your "Story"?

Today is World Marriage Day and surprisingly, 34 years ago today my husband proposed to me! We met on a volcano . . . yes, I said a volcano! Mt. Lassen in Northern California is an active volcano and we met on Mt. Lassen. If you ever want to take a truly amazing vacation, go to Redding, CA. From Redding you can take day-trips to the East and see Mt. Lassen; you can even climb to the top of it, go through Bumpass Hell (like Old Faithful), walk through the "Subway Caves" (the last time Lassen blew, the lava made underground caves you can hike through now.), and go to see Burney Falls (they made some Tarzan shows there) and hike around the falls. Then the next day you can go North and see Lake Shasta, Mt. Shasta, and Castle Craigs. Of course you will want to go West and see the Redwoods and the Pacific Ocean another day. If you go South, you can visit the Sacramento Zoo - which is a great zoo and to San Francisco as well.

At any rate, for 34 years now I have been either engaged or married to Dave Freeman and I am so thankful for him! It has been a wonderful 34 years - we have lived in both California and Michigan, have two grown children, a daughter-in-law and now three wonderful grandsons who make our hearts happy! God has been so very good to us!

So on, "World Marriage Day", what is your "story"? Where did you meet your hubby - or for your grandpas and dads out there - your wife?
