Happy Anniversary! 24 years and counting...

In 1984 while a junior at Palo Duro High School in Amarillo, Texas - I first saw this beautiful sophomore walking down the hallway. I wasted little time asking this girl out . . . and the rest is history!
.
It was November 15, 1986 when two 19 year olds stood before our pastor [Bobby Tow] and exchanged vows to one another and the Lord Jesus Christ - pledging our lives to Him and our fidelity and commitment to one another. That was TWENTY-FOUR years ago and I must say that I cannot thank the Lord Jesus enough for the tremendous blessing that He entrusted me with.
.
Many people made predictions about our marriage and our future: "They won't last a year...", "They are too young...", and some good ones as well, "God is going to bless and use you both mightily...", "You guys are PERFECT for one another...". I praise the Lord Jesus that our marriage was not built upon the predictions of man but rather upon the promises of the Lord Jesus Christ!
