Our 23rd Anniversary

While watching our wedding video for at least the 23 time, I could not help but smile.  WOW what a celebration – I guess Bonnie knew how to throw a party!  Obviously many people in the video are now with the Lord – what a reminder that life really never stands still.  What a reminder of the many friends who were part of our bridle party and who all (17 out of 18) showed up for her memorial service.

Hearing our vows, “… for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health…” were great reminders of the commitment and patience we both had with each other.  Hearing Bonnie’s voice reminded me of her grace, beauty and gentleness.  Despite some bumps in the road, some unexpected turns, I’m so very glad the Lord brought us together and and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

My day ends with a heart for of gratefulness for God’s faithfulness in our past and the hope we all share for the future.
