Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

A to Z Challenge: A is for Anniversary


A to Z Challenge:  A is for April Anniversary.  



My 27th wedding anniversary is this month, April 5th.  27 years I have been married to an amazing, affectionate, boyish man who has done all he can to captivate and charm me, winning my devoted delight.  Engaging and endearing, my friendly, good-natured, handsome husband, is irresistibly jocund, kind-hearted to a fault, lovable and loving.  Marvelously magnanimous and noteworthy in his originality, this personable, quick-witted, resourceful sweetheart is my treasured soulmate.  An understanding man of high virtue, he will always be a whimsical youth to me, a bit zany but always adorable.  My beloved, a chivalrous, demonstrative, eccentric who is frisky and gracious all rolled into one. He is always an honoring, impressive, and jovial leader, missional yet naturally obliging and pleasant with his rare style.  Thoughtful in all he does, Colin is an uncommon visionary who is guided by warmth and wisdom and a zealous love for his God and his wife.  I am blessed. 

A to Z
Thank you, Lee.  We all owe you a debt of gratitude.
