It has been said there are no coincidences in life. The Bible tells us God's timing is always perfect, even when we can't recognize it. The death of the author's wife revealed this clearly to him. This is the true story of how a young soldier, attracted to a young woman because of the car she drove, quickly fell in love with her beautiful soul and how it led to an incredible forty-seven-year journey together filled with love, hardships, travel and a never ending spiritual growth. Tom Glenn's wife died just fifty-five days after her first ER visit. As he wrote their story, Tom came to realize that he had spontaneously proposed to her, without benefit of a ring or prior planning, by taking a "giant leap" on July 20, 1969, just fifty-five days after their first date. As they watched the lunar landing and listened to Neil Armstrong's words, Tom found himself saying, "Speaking of giant leaps would you marry me?" She accepted and their journey together began. Biblical numerologists believe five means hand and fifty-five means God's hands. This is the story of two lives lived in God's hands which led to ongoing spiritual growth.
