On this Day in History: August 12

A lot of significant events took place on August 12. None were more significant than when the most beautiful and sweetest girl in the world said “yes.” Proverbs 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. I praise the Lord for His goodness in bringing the two of us together.

August 12, 1989
