This is the story of a couple, who's faith was tested beyond all measure.
|Chapter 1.. The LOVE Story
As the sun rises at 5:30 am, Jen is woken by the smell of coffee brewing on
the counter. Jim wakes at this time every morning to make sure his lovely wife
has everything she needs to start her day. As the morning passes, they
always take the time to sit and enjoy their breakfast and time together. Never
occupying there time with TV or the news paper, they find there mornings
precious. Before they head out to work they spend time reading devotions and
pray together. Jen being a teacher at Miles Christian Academy teaches math.
Jim works as an Police Officer and youth pastor. There passion growing up
was always helping others, and what better professions to be in. Jim, once or
twice a week stopped in to have a quick lunch with his lovely wife. They
sometimes thought about how they met and how they got to where they are.
Jim being the star athlete, always stayed humble throughout his high school
years. He spent a lot of time volunteering for different agencies around town.
Jen, was maintaining a 4.0 GPA through all four years of school. She spent a
lot of her time tutoring other students and also working at the local animal
shelter. It's at the animal shelter where Jen and Jim met and fell in love. They
got married 5 years later after college, and have been happy ever since. Well
lunch was now over and it was back to work for them both. Before they leave
they kiss each other good bye and end with an I love you. Just like every
other day, they both arrive home at the same time, walking in the door
together hand in hand. As Jen sits down to relax, Jim prepares dinner. As
they sit down to eat the talk about their day and make plans for the weekend.
They had decided to head to the park, and have a picnic by the lake, and
throw in a little trip to the ice cream parlor. Before bed they read devotions,
and pray together. Thanking God for everything he has blessed them with, and
praising him for his goodness and grace, and love. As the alarm sounds at
11:00pm Saturday morning, Jim and Jen are getting ready to start out on their
Picnic and activities for the day. Everything was packed in the car and ready
to go. With a last minute check of the house they lock the doors and head
out. Backing out of the drive way Jen starts to laugh. Jim looked over and
asked what was so funny. Jen, almost in tears remind her lovely husband of
the time he ran over the mailbox and the trash can, then getting stuck on the
curb. Finally, spinning out and digging about a 3 foot hole in the front yard. Jim
laughing said that it was Jen's fault because she was the navigator. The
couple heads on to the highway toward the park. Traffic isn't that bad on
Saturdays so there trip is right on schedule. Jim takes the off ramp that leads
to the park. Traveling down through the city Jim comes to a stop at the light.
Jen is so excited about their picnic, she leans over and gives him a kiss. He
smiles as he takes off from the light, and that's the last thing he
remembers...TO BE CONTINUED.....
