21 TODAY!!

That's right. Dave and I are 21 today!

Married, that is.

Yep, 21 years ago today
we were walking back down that
rose petal strewn aisle, hand in hand,
about to embark on a life of adventure,
together, not a care in the world,
not knowing what the Lord had in store
for us, but excited at the prospect
and secure in the knowledge that He would
guide us and lead us every step of the way.

And wow! what a great 21 years it has been.
We're ready for 21 more.

I'm sorry ladies, but 21 years ago,
every woman in the world had to
settle for 2nd best, because

The Lord has blessed us beyond measure,
and brought us through testings, trials,
adventure, excitement, sadness,
sickness and so much more.
But through it all, He has been there
for us, and has been that lighthouse
on the sea shore, directing our path
and lighting our way.

The Bible has so much to say about
marriage God's way. 
But, this is some of the best advice:

Proverbs 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

And no, Dad, good try,
but you were too late!
Not a chance!

I love you, Dave
