26 Years


Today is our 26th wedding anniversary and we splurged on eating at KFC (white meat for me) and then we took in Prince Caspian.
So much has happened in all those years. We have had great joys and terrible disappointments. But the constant has been we have stuck together and kept seeking the Lord. Many laughs and many tears later we have a bright hope for our future. There is no one else I would rather walk another 26 years with than Lynn.
I realized that I have been married over half of my life. Where would I be without Lynn? I have no idea and do not want to think about it. God has used her to make me grow as a person in many ways. I know I got the better end of the marriage - she has to put up with me.
We prayed at dinner and she asked God for at least 26 more years - AMEN.

PS. On our 20th we went to Jamacia, after out trip to the Philippines we decided not to spend big bucks like that again on an anniversary. Mission trips are so much better for our souls and a much better investment in the Kingdom.

Congrats, big man! That's great.

I've heard that there is this Christmas store that sells great perfume. Perhaps you can pick some up for an anniversary present.

Love you!

Actually, I think I have a few bottles left in my attic. Just let me know, Ken. B.
