Thirteen Years of Wedded Bliss

Today is our 13th wedding anniversary. The 'young' couple in this picture had no idea what God had in store for them when they said "I do."

It has been a tremendous time of growth for both of us. Good times and bad, ups and downs, but together through it all. God has provided for us in remarkable ways. We still have much to learn and much to do.

I am so thankful that the Lord put this wonderful woman in my life. She promised me 57 years (see "Rocky 1"), we only have 44 more to go.

Wow, hard to imagine it was 13 years ago. Byron started us off and then we fell off one by one.

I remember the day well . . . I was very nervous, as I always am, maybe more nervous than the two of you were! . . . but once the service started I felt your joy and it became a special time for me as it was for you two. What a day.

It's just a good thing that neither of you was wearing a broach.
