There was such a certainty about this relationship and everyone felt the same thing.  Maybe that’s because they look like Ken and Barbie… beautiful blue-eyed blondes…or maybe it’s much deeper than how cute they look together… maybe there is a certainty and confidence in their relationship because the foundation of their love is based on something greater than themselves.
