Happy Birthday, My Precious Bride!

Today is a special day in the life of our family as it is the day that God providentially brought my dearly beloved wife into this world.  We reflect on God's goodness, grace, and mercy that He has shown through the life of Jill and we look forward to God's continuing work in and through her knowing that He has promised that "he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6, KJV)


Happy Birthday, my dearly beloved bride!  I am grateful that the Lord has brought us together for the great purposes of bringing forth godly children, modeling the relationship of Christ and the Church, and working together to take dominion for His honor and glory.  I am very blessed by your commitment to serve the Lord in what you do and I pray that God will pour out His abundant blessing by giving you much joyful, fruitful labor in the years to come.  Thank you for all that you do for me and for our family.  May you delight in being my dear help-meet and the mother to our precious children.

Jill, look to the past with great joy for what the Lord has done in the life of this family and how He has used you for His purposes.  Give Him praise for His work and the privilege that He has given you to be a part of that work.  Look to the future with tremendous hope knowing that the Lord will continue to carry out His plan and purpose having included you as His child in that plan and purpose and knowing that He has given you good works to accomplish, which He has foreordained (Ephesians 2:10).

Jill, you are very special to me and I am filled with gratitude to the Lord that He has given you to me as a gift!  I love you, honey!

Happy birthday, sweetheart!!

Forever Yours,
