Thirteen years ago, I raced up South Mountain, chasing the sunset to meet my sweetie and tie the knot. We missed the sunset, but by the light of the headlights of a Dale Earnhart key chain we were married by our good friend Jessie.
Then, ten years ago, I could barely contain myself during my RCIA class where we had arranged with Fr. Leo to convalidate our marriage after the session on the Sacrament of Matrimony. The rest of the class didn't know about the 'object lesson' and it was a wonderful surprise and a beautiful ceremony.
