18 years ago, on an overcast Oregon day, my best friend and I promised to love each other…and asked for Divine assistance to accomplish it. Which means, I guess, that our marriage is officially an adult today. And it feels that way. These last two years, and especially the last few months, have felt like we’ve added maturity and stability to our commitment to each other.

I’ve always told her I look forward to growing old with her; now I’m looking forward to when our marriage is old enough to get the application to AARP, and hopefully even when our marriage is old enough to take social security! That’ll put the two of us at 89 or so. 🙂

I love you, Elaine!

  1. May God, who created all that is good, continue to create in your lives a union of love, honor, and peace. I pray that you will always be fruitful on this earth as you reach for heaven’s promises. I pray that that you will always fan into flame the call that you have been given, it is the call to each other. I pray that you will always allow the living water of God to wash away the things that dont matter and reveal those things that do. I pray that the wind of God’s presence will always take you both into a suddenly with Him. I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to weave in and through your marriage as He creates a tapastry of beauty and purpose. Laugh together, cry together, stand together and worship together. You are both amazing individuals but together, you are magnificent!

    “I am my lover’s and my lover is mine…” Song of Songs 6:3

    May you always grow young together.
