Anniversary Gift to My Husband

Our anniversary was nearly two months ago, but a gift I gave is still bringing joy and tears to my beloved.

I asked my son Jordan to help me make this, and he did a great job. I chose most of the pictures, but he did everything else--including changing it dozens of times to please his mother. :-)
He also put the surprise Anniversary greeting on the end.

The song was one we had sung at our wedding--it was almost brand new at the time. I had no idea it would become a common wedding song.

By the way, the photo of me in my wedding dress near the end of the video was taken on this 20th anniversary. :-)

Thought others might enjoy a quick chronological trip through the first 20 years of our marriage. May God receive all the glory for His goodness to us.

Happy Mother's Day, My Dear Wife!!

Mother's Day is a special day to honor the blessing and nobility of the high calling of motherhood! It is with warm affection that I wish my dearly beloved wife a very Happy Mother's Day today!

Jill, I love you very much and I am so grateful to have you as the mother to our dear and precious children! I appreciate your deep Christian commitment and your desire to help me in raising up a godly seed for the honor and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ! I am blessed to be sharing visions and making plans with you for our family in the future - all of which we both understand are entirely dependent on God's sovereign will. May you be filled with joy as a mother and may you always know how grateful I am to be laboring together in this noble work of training the next generation of godly Christian warriors to engage the culture and gain victory for our Lord. I thank you, Jill, for everything that you do to care for our family and I pray that you will know the joy of the Lord as you serve Him in being a mother! Happy Mother's Day, Jill!

Photographic Definition of "Happy"

Says it all, does it not? Tirzah is 8 1/2 months old in this pic. She is nearly 10 mos. now.
