TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE:

My 20th High School Reunion
TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE:

My high school sweetheart and the man of my dreams. What can I say? When I was 16 I prayed to God for Him to send you to me and then you came. You complete me and are helping me be the woman God created me for. When you asked me to marry you and said ,"who else would give you 10 kids and a dog ?" I joked and said, "kill the dog and make it 11 kids!!!" We were married that year, got pregnant on our honeymoon and just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with twelve kids!!!

I am so blessed that you provide for our family letting me stay home with our children and homeschool them. Your love and support with keeping the house together, grocery shopping, cooking, and finding time to read to the kids is so meaningful to me. You especially inspired me over the years like when you opened a Christian Bookstore because you felt like God was calling you to totally trust in Him. Then you quit your job when I was expecting, to run it full time knowing that God would provide for your growing family. The faith you show daily amazes those around you .

Your wit and love of your family is contageous. When you made the goal to run a marathon and then an ironman you made us all so proud. I embrace and thank God for each day we grow old together and help each other grow closer to what God has called us to.

Thank you for being my soul mate and best friend.

Our 20th Wedding Anniversary

+Love your bride+

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+
