All my little plans and schemes Gone like some forgotten dream Seems like all I really was doing Was waiting for you
Just like little girls and boys Playing with their little toys Seems like all we really were doing Was waiting for love
No need to be alone It's real love Yes it's real Yes it's real love It's real
From this moment on I know Exactly where my life will go Seems like all I really was doing Was waiting for love.
Last Sunday, My son Gavin and his fiance Rachel were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Keene, Texas SDA Church. As I proudly sat through the ceremony I was struck by how much love came shining through. Rachel had a big smile on her face as she walked down the aisle, and the look on Gavin's face as he watched her was priceless. The smiles were on their faces all day.
I was so happy for them because I am sure of their love for each other. Real Love seems to be an uncommon thing but I am certain that Gavin and Rachel have found it.
Not only was the wedding beautiful, but we had a wonderful time with family over the weekend. It was great to get to spend time with our kids and our siblings. We had so much fun. My granddaughters were the flower girls and they were very beautiful.
It was a beautiful wedding and a lovely day. My prayer for Gavin and Rachel is that their wedding day was a beautiful beginning to a lifelong journey together. I hope that they plan to grow old together.
Grow old along with me The best is yet to be When our time has come We will be as one God bless our love God bless our love
Grow old along with me Two branches of one tree Face the setting sun When the day is done God bless our love God bless our love
Spending our lives together Man and wife together World without end World without end

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled An Arkie's Faith, using articles from the column.
