29 YEARS . . . AND 46 MORE TO GO !!!

[on our 75 year marriage contract (long story)]

We are sooooo blessed.

4 children Matt, Jen, Mike & Dan,
a daughter-in-law Em, a soon to be son-in-law Jeff,
2 cute grandchildren Gabri & Addy
(okay I acknowledge the 2 cats Chip & Slinky)
Parents that encouraged and supported us
18 loving brothers, sisters, and spouses who love to get together.
24 Very fun nieces and nephews, and a cute great niece.
Friends that "stick closer than a brother".
and this new world wide body of Christians that continues to encourage and love us.

We don't believe that this is the biggest challenge in our marriage, but it's near the top of the list.
Thank you for walking this road with us.

"For all your continued prayers, love and support,
We love all of you so much!"

II Chronicles 20:21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang:

“Give thanks to the Lord, his faithful love endures forever!”

Bill, when you sang "I'll Be Loving You Always" to Deb at the wedding, you sure meant it. Thank you for loving Deb so much. Deb, when you vowed to love, honor and obey, you sure meant it. Thank you for being the Proverbs 31 woman of example. May God continue to bless you with 46 more, and I DO Want to hear the "long story" soon!! Love Mom J

Happy Anniversary! I love to see couples that are still soooo in love after so many years together. You guys are a rare 'breed' these days.... thank you for teaching those of us that don't have as many years under our belts.
And thank you for letting us walk this path with you...especially those of us in the family of God that may never meet you face to face until we get to Heaven.... but what a day that will be!
How was the Shrek outing????

Joyous anniversary to you both! Thanks for being such a wonderful example to me of a Christ-centered marriage. You will always be my favorite "adopted parents" in Chicago. :-)
Your "San Diego daughter"
