Today I read words of Susannah Spurgeon after the death of her husband, British pastor Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892). The two were married for 36-years:
"I can see two pilgrims treading the highway of life together, hand in hand, heart linked to heart. True they had mountains to climb, but their Guide was ever watchful. Mostly they went on their way singing."*My husband, Jim, and I find ourselves singing as we relish the God-given gift of our first grandchild!
