25 Years!

Today I have been married for 25 years to my best friend. I am a pretty lucky guy to have her stick around that long! Actually, God blessed me with a girl that is far above what I deserved. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:22

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.

That is an understatement for me! I have found the “best.”

Thanks for hanging in there and doing life with me Jennifer. I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years brings!

Happy birthday to my girl! Love you more than ever!

Need a jump?

I just had to jump start my van. I went to start it and got the horrid “click of death.” It had nothing. No juice. No energy to start. Of course, I already had a busy day scheduled, so this was a slight inconvenience for me. But, as I sit here pondering the situation, I can’t help but think that I find myself feeling that way in life. No energy. No power for the day or for a particular task.

The problem? My power source. Just like my van, the source of power was empty and needed replaced. I find myself with no power when I am not connected to the right source: my relationship with God.

When I disconnect from Him, I have no power. I try to do life on my own and quickly find myself in need of a “jump.”

Oh that I would stay connected to the true source of power and strength.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Been married to this girl for 23 years today! She is my best friend and the joy of my life! Happy Anniversary Jennifer! I love you!

Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you.

Rejoice in the wife of your youth.

                                                                                                                 - Proverbs 5:18

Today I am enjoying my family, eating good food and hearing from friends all over the world. I am counting my blessings and weeping as I do it. God has been so good to our family. He has always been good to us, but the last two years have brought me to a new level of gratitude and appreciation for the simple and little things in life. We can move so fast that we take things for-granted. Take time everyday to taste and see that the Lord is good… because He is!

As for me, I am thankful to have my family around me today. I am thankful that my kids and grand kids are ALL healthy and whole. I am thankful that I have a wonderful group of people at Christ Community Church that I get to pastor starting this next week as we move to Oklahoma. God is good!

What are you thankful for today?
