I've now known Big Frog longer than I didn't know him. I wasn't quite 18 when I started college, and that was 18 years ago. And due to our physics prof's wife (not that she was there, but she claims responsibility for our marriage), I met Big Frog my first week of classes, in physics lab. That prof's son, who was our ring bearer in 2001, is coincidentally starting his freshman year at Messiah this week.
Just last Sunday, I was talking to a high school senior who is taking AP physics this term. I told him that it could change his life. If I hadn't placed out of freshman physics, or if Big Frog hadn't been activated to serve overseas the year before, delaying his sophomore year, God would have needed entirely other means to bring us together.
Here's to the next 18 & beyond, Big Frog!
