Happy 27th Anniversary Sweetheart!

Thank you for calling this morning. It was a sweet talk, funny we both forgot our anniversary till Mother called to remind me before she went to breakfast.

You were 33. I was 26. Our families were relieved to see us settling down. God has made up for the seemingly lost years, giving us seven. I pray our children will be blessed even more, and we will live to see and enjoy our great-great grandchildren.

Please don't forget I love you even more than I did 27 years ago! Your love is greater too. Thank you for bringing me water in the mornings, reading with me-that has been great nourishment for us through the years.

Yesterday I was blue, so I read with Jodavid ten chapters of Job. His healing came after he prayed for God to forgive his advisors. That had an application for me too.

Though I have enjoyed this week: gardening, cooking, cleaning, reading and writing with Jodavid, I'm looking forward to you all coming back from camp. I'm so happy to hear how God used you all there. I'm proud of you, Regina, Lance and Warren Mark speaking so well. I pray God will use us, and that our tomorrows will see greater fruit than our yesterdays. God is not bound by what happened yesterday. For this I am thankful.
