~14 of the best years of my life~


(We were in a CROWDED park trying to watch our stroller from being stolen, and our little Elijah from being kidnapped, all while trying to be ready for Kimberly to snap this picture. =)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Fourteen WONDERFUL years together. WOW! Just think of that!
Plus the 3 years that we dated...*(all THANKS to your good friend Matt!)*
Phillip, I love you more today than I ever have before!
Each year that passes, I find that I love you more!

Our life has been more of an adventure than I had dreamed;
We've been blessed to travel, sharing God's word to see others redeemed.
In Ohio, Arizona, Costa Rica, and Colombia for the past 3 years,
Sharing times of happiness, joy, laughter, as well as sadness and tears.

Happy Anniversary, my sweetheart Phillip, you mean the world to me!
Being your wife and Mommy of your children...I'm as happy as can be!
Our future is bright for God is the head of our home...
Let us grow old together and make life great...wherever we roam. =)
(*Phillip's high school friend, Matt Johnson, called Phillip the summer before my freshman year at GBS and told him to look me up when I got there. Thanks, Matt! =)

Congratulations to a wonderful couple. God has blessed your life to many as you have given Him your all. May He reward you with many more happy years. Thank you, Heather for being our daughter and Phillip for being our son and the four wonderful children your union has brought into our lives. We love you both, Moma

PS Guess we should thank Matt also? ;-) Good post!

Thank you for posting your pictures so they would enlarge on your anniversary post. I know you did that just for me! :-)
You have no idea how happy it makes my heart as a mother when I hear that you two are still happily married. Other than that you two are serving Jesus, that is the next thing thing a mother most wants to hear. :-)
I've been waiting for June 6, so I could read your anniversary post!
We love our family in Colombia! You are the light of our life!
We trust you have many happy moments on this SPECIAL day!

My sweet Daddy wrote this acrostic/poem for our anniversary.


D- Duo of lovers, named Phillip and Heather,
I- In school decided to spend life together.
C- Causal love, then serious, then a wedding;
K- Kimberly, Sarah, Noah, made their hearts sing.
I- In baby carriage, Elijah’s “just the thing.”
N- Now they serve Jesus in America, South,
S- Serve Him with their feet, their hands, not just their mouth.
O- On this day, June six, they celebrate their love.
N- Nod on them, Father, from Your great throne above.
