Awwww…Did You See This?

I love happy news!

It appears that a couple from Mansfield Ohio, Karen and Mark Cline, missed out on their wedding pictures twenty-seven years ago. They were mere teens when they were married, and they just didn’t have the $150 they needed to pay their photographer. The only picture they had was one a guest had taken of Karen walking down the aisle.

This week, though, all that changed. And it’s just in time for the Cline’s twenty-seventh wedding anniversary, which is tomorrow. Their photographer, Jim Wagner, who is now eighty, was cleaning out some of his old things and found the Cline’s film. He remembered the young bride who told him that she had expenses which were more important than wedding photos. What a hard thing for any bride to say!

Anyway, Wagner tracked Karen down at the diner where she works and gave her a wedding album. She finally wrote him the check for $150, and they both cried.

See? There are happy endings!

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.

Proverbs 13:12

    It’s nice to hear about times when things actually do work out, isn’t it? 🙂

    That is a sweet story, Becky. How wonderful that this couple can have wedding pictures after all this time. Our media tends to gravitate toward bad news, so it is really refreshing to hear something like this. Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend.
