- What is the most romantic thing your spouse ever said to you?
The most romantic thing my husband ever said to me began as a shopping trip. We wandered around Bon-Ton department store for quite a while, trying to match tie after tie to a new shirt for Father’s Day. After rejecting several ties, I picked up yet another tie, noting that he, too, was looking. I returned my attention to the one I held and said, “See anything you can’t live without?”
But when I lifted my head, he wasn’t looking at the ties, he was looking right at me! Needless to say I melted into a puddle right there at his feet.
- Where do you dream of celebrating your wedding anniversary?
My husband and daughter and I went on our first cruise to the New England states. We had a blast! Our 25th anniversary is next year! My dream vacation would be the Mediterranean or Australia. I’d love to do Italy, Spain and France or see the Great Barrier Reef, but just going to one of those locations would be great too. I’m not picky. 🙂 I would really like to visit someplace exotic. But if funds don’t allow, I’m most content to stay in our own, very beautiful, edge of God’s world. Our yard includes the views below.

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.
Her mother’s mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her.
Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt’s message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?
