When I tell you how many, and you do the math, you’ll wonder how people this old could still be alive!
First- we were teenagers when we married. Our parents knew we were called to vocational ministry and gave us their blessing to marry (young) and serve a church as Youth Pastor while going to college. We were SO young— I still can’t believe those parents trusted us with their children. WE were still kids!
Then KK delivered 4 incredible children before we finished college and seminary. What a girl!
A wonderful, loving, and patient Mom- and now a grandmother of 11 amazing grandkids. They’ve all seen her live out Proverbs 31.
Everywhere God sent us— she poured herself out in service. And, everything I’ve done, we’ve done it together.
Through it all, including her breast cancer and multiple surgeries, she has demonstrated the fruit of the Spirit and been a constant encourager to my soul.
Today we celebrate 45 years of marriage– I know, you’re shocked! 🙂 She is still my heart’s delight and greatest earthly treasure.
There are a lot of things in Prov 31 that describe her. But, today, as I count the blessing of 45 years of marriage, my heart stops to quote verse 11:
“The heart of her husband trusts in her…”
Her unwavering love gives me daily confidence. And she believes, and reminds me, that “God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond all we can ask or think.”
We appreciate all of the friends and prayer partners who’ve walked these roads with us. We can’t wait to see what the next 25+ years hold in store as we serve Him— together.
