25 Years of Memories

Dearest Jodi,

It surprises neither of us that our marriage has lasted for twenty-five years.  We both knew we were serious when we stated “until death parts us or our Lord shall come.”  How thankful I am that our marriage has required so little work.  God proved Himself exceedingly gracious when He united us for His great glory and our great good.  Below is a trip down memory lane.  It is a sampling of twenty-five events significant to our history.  Woven together, they provide a picture of two-and-a-half decades of friendship and love

Twenty-five years.  Twenty-five memories.  So much has transpired since our stairwell meeting in the summer of 1989!  Fun and trials.  Laughter and tears.  The daily grind.

Together we.

Thank you for faithfully walking by my side through it all.  Thank you for continuing to be my friend, helper and lover.  I am very much looking forward to our time together Wednesday and Thursday.
