To Paraphrase Virginia Slims…

…We’ve come a long way, baby!

It’s funny that i would quote that, not only that it is a woman’s cigarette and i don’t smoke women’s cigarettes any more than i smoke any other cigarettes, but that i am saying that about my marriage to my dear wife, who not only doesn’t smoke, but loathes all smoke. But, to the point…

Nine years ago this afternoon, i entered into a Holy Covenant with my wife that i would, before God and the Church, love honor and cherish her every day of my life from that day until the day one of us dies. We’ve both made a bunch of mistakes and we’ve sinned against each other as well as against God, but we have sought his grace and forgiveness, showing love and acceptance to one another in spite of our faults and failures, and we have had a wonderful nine years so far.

Happy Anniversary, Angela, my love!

May Jehovah continue to bless us richly and draw us closer to one another as we face many more years ahead.


  1. congratulations to you both and I pray you have many more blessed years together!!

    Make sure to do something for her that she’s asked for in the past–an easy way to please her!
