Sixteen years ago today, my wife, Tracy, and I made a vow to each other that did NOT include God in any way. I believe that fact alone almost caused our demise.
Despite our many failings since, we stand here today, restored and redeemed, committed to each other in the Lord, knowing we are FREE to love each other the way God designed, even when we don’t exactly do that.
My prayer today is first, one of thanksgiving for the true blessing of reconciliation that our mighty God gave us just over ten years ago, but secondly, that I will be empowered by His Spirit to lead my wife and family with strong hands, His strong hands.
Thank you, my God, for the precious gift of my wife, my two children, and your inexplicable grace. I’m overwhelmed with awe at Your love.
