Melissa, Trevor & I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary last night! Looking back on all of the trials & triumphs, setbacks & successes we've experienced throughout all the years of our marriage, I'll always be grateful for Melissa's sacrificial love, irreplaceable friendship and insightful discernment which have taught me by example that I needed to put Jesus first if I wanted our marriage to last.
"Grow old along with me (and Trevor), the best is yet to be!
The last of life, for which the first was made.
Our times are in His hand who saith,
"A whole I planned, youth shows but half;
Trust God, see all, nor be afraid!"
(Robert Browning, 1812-1889)
Taylor flew back from Pittsburgh yesterday, while his fiancee Jocelyn stayed behind to spend Christmas with her family and to pick out her wedding dress! Tanner and his new bride Delaney are driving down from Santa Barbara today to spend Christmas at our house. Trevor's happy his 'brudders' will be here, he gets to sing, clap and dance to Christmas carols at Vision City Church, and the Ducks beat the Penguins last night! cocktail party garment suitable for ladies
"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior, are sons born in one's youth.
Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate." (Psalm 127:3-5)
