Gail, Your real life romance does have some parallels to an old-fashioned match though I'm glad you took your time and made sure he was the one! It is sad that women often married against their will or for mercenary reasons. Makes me thankful I'm living in this century! Thanks for your comments and being the first to chime in here. You make it extra fun!

I would like to meet Jesus' mother.
Dear Mary, Those few words say SO much. I agree with you. What an extraordinary woman she must have been. It's a privilege/honor to think of meeting her in heaven.
Karen, We may very well be distant kin! Kemp is a lovely name and one that isn't heard too often, thus making it even more special. Those Humes were quite a family. Sad that George of the 17th-c. lost several sons to the British in battle. Amazing that the line continued as several brothers were childless. Amazing history indeed! Like you, reputable character means so much. Courage and faith are certainly requirements. Glad we have more options today! Thanks so much for your gracious spirit:)
Hi Nyla, I'd love to meet Mary T Lincoln, too. Her childhood home is just a half hour from me in Lexington, KY. She was a very bright, complicated woman who bore a lot of tragedy. I like to think of meeting her in heaven!
Penny, I love your beautiful attitude and heart of faith. You say so well what I was thinking as I posed the arranged marriage question. Thanks for your humbling comments.
I am not sure if I could agree to a marriage of convenience. God would really have to speak to me in order to do so. I would love to meet Ruth and Esther from the bible.
Beth, I hear you about hearing from the Lord in such matters. A clear voice/direction would certainly help make the arrangement much sweeter! Love your choices of Ruth and Esther. Puts me in mind of Liz Curtis Higg's wonderful Bible studies on those godly women. Thanks for your comments!
