Today we are in Belgium. . . Antwerp, actually. About 45 minutes from where i met my wife in Zaventum.
Today is the 19th anniversary of my marriage to the woman who puts up with me. We met each other in Belgium in August 1985, as part of OM’s Love Europe summer campaign. On August 8, 1987, despite the poor example of Solomon who married foreign women, I married my own foreign woman – an American named Debbie. We were married at First Ev. Free Church in Fullerton, known to locals as the Pizza Hut and famous for its pastor Chuck Swindoll.
Our anniversary custom is to go out together and buy each other a gift – this is due to my inability to buy what my wife really wants, and my wife’s fear that what she buys me will not be used (i’m very fussy). Today, fashion consultants Derek and Amy Chapman will accompany us to a number of Belgian stores to suggest an appropriate gift.
