Ok, it's to my wife and me, but if I didn't say anything then no one would know, and I'm much too self-absorbed to not have people know that I have a great wife!! Three years ago today Lesa and I were married by Pastor Steve Ahlersmeyer at Zion Lutheran Church in Woodburn, Indiana. Who would have ever guessed we would be celebrating 3 years later in central Texas? It has been a wonderful 3 years and I am confident in saying that I would not be where I am today without the love and support of such a wonderful wife.
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens. (ok, this is a stretch!)
Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
