15 Years

15 years ago today, my wife and I were married at Redeemer Covenant Church in Liverpool, NY by Pastor Bill Anthes. I thank God for so many couples who lived out strong marriages and mentored us in many ways ... The Anthes, Baehrs, Shorts, LaCourses, Janes, Gabriels, Franks, Hartmans, Godards, Sagers and so many others. I find it amazing that 15 years later I still think of those people as role models and some of the finest Christian people I have ever known. I still hope to grow up and be like them.

It hasn't been 15 years of marital bliss. There have been some very dark times. But God's grace has carried us. We have also had some very joyous times: learning to live through times of poverty & seeing miracles of God's provision, having 4 incredible children, being a ministry family, seeing friends and family come to Christ, owning our first home, tithing and having good friends like Misses Linda, Lynnette, Kay, Carol, Evelyn, Dahls, Mr. Robb, The Cuckoo Guy aka Jimmy Lee, The Kooys, Johnsruds, Fergusons, Littlefields, Kulbagos, Avistes, Turners, Humphries, Coburns, Carlsons, SangTang, the a5 Band, and so many more. Our families, epsecially my mom, dad and gramma have given us more than we could have ever imagined.

We appear to be headed for another 50 years together. Thanks be to God.

Someone recently said to me with regard to marriage, "Marriage is hard...but good." It's similar to the Beaver's response to the Pevensie children when they inquire about the safety of Aslan, "Of course he's not safe, but he's good."
