the story of Susannah Thompson & Charles Spurgeon
“During that walk, in that memorable day in June, I believe God Himself united our hearts in indissoluble bonds of true affection, and though we knew it not, gave us to each other forever.”
The Love of Charles and Susannah Spurgeon (shorter version)
Mrs. C. H. Spurgeon (longer version)
When you hear a love story it is the description of something that happened, not a prescription of how to make that very same thing happen in your own life.
