1996 Graduating Highschool Party
I said No every time he asked, but he was wearing on me. So one day he gave me a note, and it read " Will you Please be my girlfriend? circle Yes or No with cute little drawn smiley faces smiling under yes and frowning under no. I circled yes and gave the note back and thus began the epic romance story of all time. " The Love Ballad of Allen and Alicia" Our story began with trips to his house for lunch and he to mine (more often than his he ate at my house). Our first date at Putt Putt golf and games with chaperons of Sandy and Christy Little.
The climax of our story happened on June 5th 1997 when Allen Little asked me Alicia Johnston to be his wife at Triple S Christian Ranch in Rosebud, Arkansas in front of the entire assembly. Evangelist Stan Harris a martial arts expert was the guest preacher demonstrating different fighting techniques and breaking boards, he autographed a board he broke that Allen and I held right after he asked me. Little did I know that this would be a symbol of the job I would have to do to whip Allen into shape to be a good husband.
March 14, 1998, my little girls dreams came true, I married the prince of my heart. One of my favorite memories of the day was the sleep over I had with some of my bridesmaids and sisters. After that we enjoyed a Honeymoon in San Antonio and Corpus Christi. We then began the life together that we enjoy in the Lord today! We have had the ups and downs, twist and turns, but God has been Good to us through it all. Our love for each other has grown. I would not say we have reached the top of the hill. When I speak with senior saints and they tell me of their stories, I realize we are just a the beginning of fantastic journey. So here's to 15 wonderful years of marriage looking to 50 more.
2013 To Be Continued!
I love you Allen Little!
