Anniversary 26

Today is our 26th wedding anniversary. That sounds kind of weird. I really don't think we're that old! But to be married for 26 years, to have too kids in college, to have been a part of each other's life for over 30 years. I guess we are getting old.

Gina and I didn't really think ahead when we got married. This is a terrible time of year for a teacher and a campus minister to try and celebrate anything! We are far too busy and far too tired. But that's ok. I'm blessed with a wife who understands those things and the ebb and flow of life in campus ministry. From the middle of August to the end of September, it is almost non-stop. Then I settle down into more consistent 50-55 hour weeks. We both spent the day at work and our evening feeding dinner and teaching about 30 members of the Springdale High School football team. We did go out to dinner last night to celebrate!

I finished up the final pre-marital counseling session for a couple who is getting married in October. I pray that their marriage will be even half as blessed and fulfilling and happy as ours has been for the past 26 years. God has been good to me and has blessed me with a wife far better than I deserve. I definitely married over my head!

"A wife of noble character is her husband's crown."
Proverbs 12:4

"Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD."
Proverbs 19:14

"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies."
Proverbs 31:10
