Dear God, I know it is by Your grace, mercy and love that You have blessed me with this excellent man and two wonderful, precious children. I love you. I pray in some small way my life will bring honor to You.
Happy Anniversary Jim and Sharon!
That was such a beautiful tribute to Jim!
Praying for your time of “us”!
Praising God for knowing the righteous man for you to spend life with!
Hugs and much love to you both!
That was an amazing tribute to your husband! (Although honestly, I am glad for the few comments that share he isn’t perfect..that keeps it real, especially for those who’s marriages are less than perfect).
The thing I see most is that you are truly a cord of THREE strands. God was right there in the middle of your wedding, and he is right there in the middle of your marriage, making it what it is today. Alleluia! Praise Him!
I hope you have a great trip!

Wow, honey. I have no words. I didn’t get through that one without sobbing. Had to get up and close my office door. You are too good to me, and it is your gentle kindness that leads me to repentance (as does the Lord’s) in those areas where I fail. You are the most beautiful woman I know, and you truly do honor and encourage me in so many ways. I am ever thankful to God for you, and it is my pleasure, my treasure, and my privilege to be married to you. Looking forward to our special time this weekend! You are forever my lover and my friend (Song of Solomon 5:16).
“I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk.” –Song of Solomon 5:1
I’m so blessed to have been a part of that wedding party of 24 and to have had your marriage as an example of what God intended marriage to be.
You both always write beautiful, touching tributes to each other and you are both a blessing to know and love.
Happy 17th Anniversay!!
With all our love to all of you,
Chris and Lori
