Happy Anniversary Jane

Happy anniversary Jane. I love you more today than I ever have. I don't understand how that works but the longer we are together the more I love you. Thank you for 30 wonderful years. Thank you for putting up with me for all these years. I want the whole world to know I married up when I married you. I am looking forward to at least 30 more years with you.
Pr 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. Pr 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

Well 30 years ago today Jane and I made a lifelong commitment to each other. I am very happy to give testimony that we have honored that commitment. We have been through a lot, as you might imagine some very hard times and some very easy times. If I could I would like to spend a little time with each couple I know this morning, and let you know that you can wade through the many problems that a relationship brings. You can stay with it, you can work it out, you can grow in love with each other.
Marriage is a commitment that takes a lot of work but the rewards are worth it. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters. With each came a different set of challenges, because they have very different personalities. I will have to admit that we ignorantly make a lot of mistakes with the girls but we have always tried to do what we thought best for them. We love our girls very much and in spite of the many mistakes we made they have both honored us and we are proud of the way things turned out for both of them. They are married to good boys and they each have brought three grandchildren into our lives.
