Clearly life has taken us places we never dreamed we would visit; physically, emotionally, spiritually, geographically.. we have been stretched beyond ourselves and have had to plunge deep into the secure arms of God many times. I thank God for my husband. Ray has been a rock through every storm we have faced, lovingly supporting, enduring, encouraging and forgiving. He leads our family spiritually and is a wonderful father to our kids. He is pretty fantastic but at the end of the day, I know where his strength comes from, so all the glory goes back to God. When I married him, I hoped but didn't really know he was capable of all this, but God did and I thank Him for what He has done and continues to do in his life.
So this is my (slightly indulgent), heartfelt message to my man. (the perfect gift is hard to come by here!) I want to say more than 'Happy Anniversary'. I want to say thank you for being my best friend; for giving me the best 15 years of my life and for our 3 fantastic kids. I love you; I am so very proud of you and I hope to chase dreams with you for many more years to come.
