Happy 25th Anniversary to Us!

For better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer. Check.
We've moved coast to coast, having spent years in CA, CT, SD, OH, IN, and NM.
Birthed, raised, mentored and home educated 5 beautiful, intelligent, Godly and gifted children- the delight of our lives.
Said our last good-byes to 5 our of our grand-parents, a parent, a sibling and a niece. Heart-ache.
Personally experienced earthquakes, fires, tornado's, blizzards, the Rodney King riot (ashes in our CA living room), the O.J. Simpson chase (police & news helicopters flying over our home), the Atlantic, Pacific and mountain ranges on both coasts and in between.
Earned degrees and shared ideas, hopes, dreams, thoughts, paradigm shifts.
Laughed, cried, fought, mourned, grown and been refined by living together.
Grown in our love for the Lord together.
He is still the one for me. More than ever. I am his.
Our greatest accomplishment. Staying together. Choosing Love.
