Krissy asks how we met our spouse.. I met Rob when I when I wasn't looking. I was widowed and had decided I was through with married life. I just wanted to live out my life serving God in Mexico. I came up to Ventura for camp meeting and Rob was here from the San Francisco area. I noticed him, of course, but since I wasn't looking, I didn't think anything of it.
Apparently, Rob saw me, too! He told his pastor, "Look, pastor! I like her." His pastor said, "Foget it Robert . . .she's waay out of your league."
He was there every camp meeting. We talked, he helped me load up things to take back to Mexico. I thanked him for his help. My friend said to me, "Penny, he likes you." My reply? "Get outta here! What would a guy like that see in me?"
We had a leaders retreat in late winter and Rob was there. It was snowy outside and we were pretty much inside. He followed me around and talked to me alot. The spark was lit. We were the only singles there and everyone was teasing us. I blushed! I never blushed before. I spent a lot of time asking God what he was doing to me. Then, as he was leaving, Rob gave me a little kiss and it was all over.
He says he had been following me around but that I treated him like an orphan puppy dog! That's all changed now! I treat him like he treats me - with love!
