Happy Anniversary!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

It seems like we've had a lot of different "times" in our marriage. Again, we are in the middle of one of those "times"...waiting. Waiting for the next "time" to reveal itself. I'm glad we've been able to figure some stuff out so that our "times", whatever they are, are times of being united and without strife. Thank you for choosing God first in our marriage and being a man willing to grow and who yearns to be better...however God asks it of you. Who could ask for more than that?
I thoroughly enjoy our life together. Thank you for the most wonderful children in the world and for being the best dad ever. And thank you for cherishing me.
I love you!
Happy 8 years!

Congrats, keep up the love. I have heard, or maybe I just made it up, that husbands and wives that fish together, stay together. I think I will take on that research project, I am sure my wife would be thrilled.
