Twenty four years

Today Fifi and I have been married for 24 years.

Yay!

Marriage, if things work out the way God intends, goes for a long time, and like life, can end in unexpected and always tragic ways.

How thankful I am that God has given another year with Fifi, and now with our three daughters.

Marriage—like life—is hard and painful, yet full of continual and unexpected joys and daily reasons to give thanks. The longer it goes, the more reason for thankfulness to the God who has blessed us with it, and the friends and family who have supported us on the way.

I believe God brought Fiona and I together for a reason, possibly many reasons, and until we are parted by death we will seek his glory together by trusting him and praying to him to show how he would faithfully serve him next.
