Silver Anniversary

Thursday, July 03, 2008
My wife Bev and I just celebrated 25 years of wedded bliss. As I thought about doing this blog I had many thoughts…too many thoughts. It was apparent that it was going to turn into a book. This is a blog, not a book so I'll be brief.

If this were a book, it would certainly be a love story. When I met my wife Bev, we were both teenagers. We met in church. Boy, was she beautiful. Well, we're no longer teenagers but she is certainly still beautiful.

The key to our 25 years is this—We're still in church. When you're with one person for 25 years you're gonna have good days, bad days, long days, sick days, happy days, mad days and tragic days. We've had lots of all of 'em.

Here's the bottom line. We would have never made it through the problem areas of our life if not for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Like the poem, "Footprints in the Sand," there were many times over the past 25 years that I saw one pair of footprints. During these times, He's carried us both.

I guess there are those who can rack up the years together without a daily walk with God. I for one, wouldn't want to try it.
