19 wonderful

...years.

Yes, today marks 19 wonderful years that Heather and I have shared together. Thick & thin, fun & not fun. God has been in it all. And we're very thankful.

I'm thankful to you, Heather.

Yesterday, we celebrated by hiking up in the hills, as a family. (It is still spring up there.) Rachel took the photo.

Congratulations you two. Endurance in hard times and coming out with joy and gladness is such a testimony.

Congratulations, Paul and Heather. What a testimony in a world where relationships in general and marriage, specifically, are treated so casually.

Of course, the snide part of me can hardly resist asking (obviously, I'm not going to resist), What about all the others? 19 wonderful and how many awful?

19 years together. All have been wonderful, though of course we have had our share of challenges in life and in marriage!
