This day in history

April 8th... lots of interesting things happened in history on this day.

For example:
AD 217 Emperor Caracella assassinated by the Praetorian guard, and succeeded by guard prefect.
1879 Milk sold in glass bottles for the first time
1947 Henry "pick any colour as long as it's black" Ford died
1964 Gemini I launched
1966 Robin Wright Penn ("Buttercup" in The Princess Bride) born
1986 Clint Eastwood elected mayor of Carmel, California
2013 Margaret Thatcher died

Most interesting to me though, and much less widely reported, was the event in 2004, when a young couple thinking about Bible college gave a friend a lift up to a youth camp on the Sunshine Coast.  Being the loving people they are, they made sure their friend was introduced to others at the camp, including a young man on the organising team.

Being a polite chap he said hello, but didn't think any more about it at the time, until 12 months later he needed to find a singer for the camp music team.  Then he noticed that not only did she have a voice like an angel, she was also very pleasant on the eye, and very easy to talk to.  And most of all, she clearly loved God.

The rest, as they say, is history :)
