Twenty-One and it’s Just Getting Better!

July 6, 1996 two kids stand at the alter with the world at their feet. How time flies, today we celebrate our twenty first wedding anniversary.

We celebrate our marriage in a place of blessing and strength. Though times have brought its fair share of bumps we are the stronger for it.

Sure, it’s had all the ‘give ins’, ‘give ups’ and ‘give’n’takes’ that every marriage has – we have grown together as we go forward — and so today twenty one things I’m grateful for.

IGF my wife, for she is a gift of God.

IGF my wife, because she shares her pizza crust with me even when I don’t want it!

IGF for my wife, because she sets an example worth following.

IGF my wife, because life with her is a journey that leads to a smile at the end of a difficult day.

IGF my wife, because we have cheesy names for each other that indicates genuine affection for each other.

IGF my wife, because she actually pretends to find some of my jokes even remotely funny.!

IGF for Norma, because she makes difficult bearable.

IGF her, because of who she is.

IGF for my wife, because food caught in my teeth doesn’t cause her to run.

IGF for my wife, because my weakness doesn’t cause her to quit, but to love.

IGF for my wife, because in sickness and in health she’s there — except when I’m vomiting (love has some limits).

IGF for my wife because she loves unconditionally and cares relentlessly.

IGF for my wife because her nose gets cold in winter and somehow thinks I can warm it with my cheek!

IGF for Norm, because somehow, she sees me as a hero.

IGF for my wife, because after twenty-one years and a couple of gained kilos I’m somehow still better looking than Tom Cruise.

IGF for my wife, because we still love holding hands in public!

IGF for my wife because her ability to parent two fantastic kids is nothing short of amazing.

IGF my wife, because she continues to serve the Lord without thought for herself just others.

IGF my wife, the quintessential Proverbs 21 woman.

IGF my wife, somehow, she still loves Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Sound of Music (extend your hands and pray for me!)

IGF my wife, because after twenty-one years it’s just getting better!
