This is the man I've had the privilege to know for 40 years now, being married to him for 30 of those years! He is my most honest critic and my biggest fan. He stuck by me when we were both too young to have the baggage we were nonethless carrying, and willingly gave me room while God has graciously and patiently helped me in my efforts to lose that baggage. He has worked hard to become the best husband, father, and grandfather he could be, and I am a thankful beneficiary.
I am overwhelmed by the gift he has been to me, and how our experiences have been woven together by our gracious God to become to us a beautiful and valuable tapestry of life. It truly does pay to discover.
