We arrived here in Visalia–which is central California–in the middle of the afternoon on Friday. By 6:00 Jerry and I had dressed for the event, walked across the property and into the hall decorated magnificently for the 50th wedding anniversary of our dear friends, Barbara and Harvey Cantrell.
It was a beautiful evening, layered with accolades and blessings and sweet words. The marriage of this exceptional couple has been set as a guiding star, a set point in relationships. They have pastored several churches, and Pastor Cantrell has been intensely involved in organizational work, having been the secretary of the Western District of the UPCI for many years.
