Ten Years After...

A personal note: this past Monday, August 4, my wife and I celebrated our 1oth wedding anniversary.

To say our first decade together was tumultuous is a consummate understatement. But someone forgot to tell the Devil and a legion of woe-wishers that adversity has a way of binding people more closely. Monday night we sat together and recounted the waves and billows the Lord brought us through. We are older and and more refined, knowing the Lord and ourselves more than we did yesterday. Our marriage has, as my wife put it, gotten better like fine wine.

With His help and mercy, I shall enjoy more years with a treasure of a wife.

An excellent wife, who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.

Happy anniversary you two crazy kids! Well, not Chuck, his "kid" days are loooong gone :) It's really cool to see what God has brought you two through in the past few years. You guys are both an inspiration to Missy and myself of God's Grace in the lives of His people.
