6 years ago today, the woman I love so dearly entered into covenant with me to be married. Three houses, two children, two floods, three chickens, international flights, vegetable gardens, ministry planting, 90 day bible reading insanity, blissfully few disagreements, prayer, worship, tears of joy and sorrow, music, camping, digging french drains, overeating, dieting, house painting and much more later, I can say this…

Sarah, by the grace of God, today I love you more dearly and treasure your friendship and care more deeply than at any point previously in our marriage. The day we first walked as husband and wife was the beginning of a beautiful adventure, one we have walked with Jesus, and one where I am so grateful for your grace and kindness towards me. You have encouraged me, supported me, forgiven me and lovingly corrected me by the Word of God. You have been faithful, generous and I know that you have desired good for me. I pray you know how much I adore you and thank God for you. Here’s to many more years together in this Kingdom of now but not yet! To the adventure!!
