25th Anniversary

25 years ago, I promised to walk through life beside this wonderful man. Together we've raised two beautiful daughters (one of whom is now contemplating marriage, but that's another post), weathered many storms, and now live each day reminded of our commitment to stay together "in sickness and in health".

Phil, it hasn't been an easy 25 years, but by God's grace, we've walked "down life's lumpy road together", as Pastor Newhart is fond of saying. I thank God every day for you. Your love for me is overwhelming, your support and encouragement inspire me, and your commitment to me is amazing, for I surely do not deserve it. You demonstrate agape love to me daily, which would not be possible without your passionate commitment to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and the work He has done in your life.

I am thrilled at the changes God has wrought in our marriage these past few months. My prayer is that we will continue to draw near to God, and to each other. I love you more than words could ever express. Thank you for staying beside me these 25 years.
