Happy Anniversary!

Today is our 19th. I think Melissa would agree with me that marriage is one of Christ's crucibles for those who would live out His Gospel.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. (Ephesians 5:31-33)

It makes it easier if you think your spouse is kinda cute, too.

Congratulations to both of you, Father Tim---and blessings for many more!

Unfortunately the Winery can't ship to South Dakota (talk to your legislators), but I will hoist a glass at dinner tonight in your honor. Grace and peace to you both.

Every blessing and joy to you both. I am among those who have been blessed long distance by your faithful, gifted, dedicated and doggedly determined (through thick and thin) ministries.

PS - Looking closely twice...I can't be sure - Is this Melissa's wedding photo in what we Southerners call her 'going away' outfit?

If this is a recent picture, Melissa, you still look like a bride!
