Your Turn Brenda…

01 Nov

You didn’t think that I would let your birthday pass without a post, did you?  Well, I’m keeping it simple this time as compared to last year.

I realize that it continues to be a difficult journey.  You inspire me with your godly grace and patience.  You have been a tremendous helper to me and enthusiastic teacher to your children.  I am greatly blessed to know you Brenda and to have you as my wife.  You are a wonderful wife, mother and friend.

This verse is my prayer for you:

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Eph 3:16-19)

I hope that you have a most blessed birthday anniversary.  I love you; but much better yet, God loves you.


PS:  OK, I will include a few pictures.

…three leaves in a pile…

…and one boy waiting in Heaven.
