Anniversary Blessings

Happy Anniversary to My Dearest Rebecca


The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful wife for eighteen years now.

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;
I will make him an help meet for him. Genesis 2:18

Today, I rejoice as I reminisce about our years together. We have been given two beautiful children and have learned a lot during our journey together. I look forward with excitement to what our Lord has in store for us in the years to come.

Rebecca, thank you for always being at my side and being my perfect Help Meet.
I pray that your day is blessed.

I Love You,
