Today is our 20th Wedding Anniversary

I will simply share this awesome expostion by John Richardson.

Two decades is not easy today - I doubt it was for any generation of marrieds but today the default is "cut and run." So here we are and, as "The Ugley Vicar" says,

"Perhaps, however, our problem is not with marriage, much less with understanding the biblical text, but with trusting God."

When that basic bond of husband and wife can't trust God and can't "bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things," is it any wonder that our politics are polarized and intolerant, our "entertainment" coarse and cynical, our world a much harsher place?

We renew our vows today - somewhere. My wife's been in the hospital for a week and as I type we're still not sure if we'll be at home or there. Wherever YOU are, your prayers for Tim & Melissa, and all husbands and wives, are always a blessing.

In sickness and in health. It's not easy but with God's grace we keep on keepin' on! Hope you'll be able to celebrate in style at a later date. :)
