What 29 Years of Marriage Has Taught Me about the Love of God

We celebrated our anniversary last week. Twenty-nine years of marriage. There have definitely been ups and downs through those years, but the longer we are married (and the older I get!), the more I see how marriage puts flesh to spiritual truth. Which isn’t really surprising, since Paul tells us that marriage is meant to […]

A Happy 50th Birthday Sunday Psalm!

A bit of a departure from the usual Sunday Psalm in honor of my main man who turns 50 today! He is kind, funny, humble, generous, and considerate. He makes a great breakfast/brunch spread. Loves his kids. Loves me. But most of all, he loves God with his whole heart and seeks to walk in […]

The Accidental Traveler

The Accidental Traveler

I’m not a very good traveler. I get super stressed over the packing, the flights, the drives. If there is turbulence, heaven help my seatmate-even if it is my hubby, who knows to expects me to squeeze his hand more tightly than when I was in labor with our children! I have learned to deal […]

My Quiet House

My Quiet House

My daughter is settled in Philly, looking for a job, ready to start grad school.

Keep Dreaming

Keep Dreaming

As a dating/engaged/newly married couple we spent lots of time dreaming about our first house. And our dream house. Of course life does what it does and alters what you think you want. Or what you need. Or what you can afford. We were privileged to buy a darling starter home that served us well […]

Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Fifty years ago today, she met him at the altar. Fifty years ago today, he left his father and mother to cleave unto his wife. Fifty years of good times. Fifty years of rough patches. Fifty years watching four kids grow, marry, and start families of their own. Fifty years of loving God and one […]

Dinner and a Show

Dinner and a Show

As of today, we have been married for twenty-six years! Last year we celebrated a quarter-century with an amazing trip to Savannah and St. Simons Island. (This picture was taken on St. Simon’s Island last year.) This year we mark the day in less grand fashion, but no less fun. Dinner at one of our […]
