~Our 15th Wedding Anniversary~

A few weeks ago when I was on bed rest, I read the book "I kissed dating goodbye." Now, I don't plan to kiss dating goodbye, I plan on dating my sweetheart for as long as I have breath =)...but I was proof reading it before our kids started reading it. It was a very good book. One of the things that caught my attention was when a young man told Joshua Harris that he was scared to ask a girl to marry him. That he felt that asking a girl to marry him could be like jumping off a cliff. I really had never thought about the guys side of it. I had thought of a guy marrying a girl and RUINING her life...but not how much of a responsibility it is for a guy to decide to ask his lady for her hand. Though he may know her really well, he is still taking a chance. A wife can make or break a man's career, life, reputation. This is the lady that will make him shine, or tear him down. She is who will basically raise his children while he's gone to work each day. His children will be trained by her and will end up accepting her values. She will help him make Heaven or Hell. WOW! When you think of it that way, it's no wonder that Phillip fasted and prayed about marrying me. He wanted to marry me with his whole heart, but just wanted to make sure it was God's will. He knew God knew the future and if I was the right one for him. Thankfully, Phillip felt that God wanted him to marry me...and today we are celebrating 15 wonderful years!
I love you, sweetheart Phillip and I am so glad that God brought us together. It doesn't seem possible that 15 years have gone by since our beautiful wedding, but I Love you more now than I did then. I'm so glad that I said, "Yes!!!!"...and I would do it all over again. =D
Let's aim to celebrate many more years happy together! =)

I remember that day - seems like I was there :). Happy Anniversary!!!
I posted a part of your wedding song on separateholy.wordpress.com today in honor of your special day. God is the Author of (not only salvation) but of marriage - that explains why satan hates it so much. Glad you are happily married. Love to all, Dad/Gramp
