Twenty Years

Twenty years ago today Arwen and I were married. Our marriage has been a tribute to God's grace. I am very thankful to be one with such a beautiful, intelligent, God-honoring bride.

We met at University. She was dating my roommate whose ambition it was to get rich and go into politics. She had other values and upon finding out that I was called into overseas work she set her sights on me and I had no chance at all. Twenty years later we have experienced much more than we had planned. We live in Middle Earth, we have four really cool kids, and God is opening up new doors everyday in the ongoing adventure that is our lives. It is the life I have always wanted and certainly never deserved. God's grace is amazing.

I'm adding my congratulations as well Strider.

Thank you to all who have congratulated my wife on her patient endurance.
Just to note I wrote this in the West but my computer is still on Middle Earth time. My anniversary is on the 20th not the 21st which is on the Post date.

I offer a belated "congratulations."

Our next one [May 28 of 09] is our fiftieth. [That is 50.] :)

We are planning a big shindig with an evening of dancing included. It's just our thing.
