The Love story of my Grandparents began when they met at a
church “Box lunch social.”
Each lady was to bring a box lunch, and the gentlemen would

living from the trees.

would go into town and knock on doors and sell fresh fruit, produce and brown
eggs.My Mother remembers managing a
fruit stand at their front entrance and selling produce and eggs for those who
would stop by.Everyone worked in the

If you are looking for a mate - - may I suggest that you
pray first and then be sure you are attending a good Bible believing church and
are enrolled in the small group sessions.
A Christian companion will secure an undivided home!Under all circumstances, never “settle” for
someone outside of Christ!!
