Together 24 Years

This past week Lynn and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary.

This got me to thinking, we met in high school and dated for 5 years before getting married. We've know each other for 29 years. Is that even possible? It truly seems like yesterday that we were playing Frisbee under the 9th street via duct (one of our first dates). Is it possible that I could be married for 24 years and have 4 wonderful children, all of whom love the Lord and desire to walk with Him?

The answer is YES.

But the truth is that it is only by the grace of God. I'm so thankful that God saw fit to bring Lynn and I together. It was through her influence that I heard the good news of the Gospel and received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. Our journey together has not always been easy or fun, but our goal has been consistent - Walk with and Serve our Lord. She is my best friend and I'm so thankful and blessed to have her in my life.

That is the way I see it!

Pastor, I didn't know that you were such a romantic guy, no wonder Lynn snatched you up! Congratulations on the anniversary. It is an encouragement to all of those around you to see a Godly marriage, there are too few of them around. May God continue to bless you and give you many more years together.
