invest


 this weekend was for flying south, far away from the below zero temps and white flakes.


to reward the work of writing 75,000 words


 and to invest in our marriage all that this coming year may drain from it.



and peace and rest met us, an answer to many prayers, and in the ways we wouldn't have thought possible.

and his dad might not have ever imagined we could have done it.

but we did. because God has done much.

You are truly an inspiration...both of you. My husband is in a battle for his very life with cancer. We are praying for God to perform a miracle beyond our own comprehension and restore him back to me...we have been married 39 years, and I love him more today than I did the day we were married! He's my best friend, my confidante, my lover, my spiritual leader, and the father of my four beautiful children.

A well-deserved reward; an even better investment. His goodness & mercy continue to pursue you; I'm grateful for how honestly you share with us.

I found your info via Facebook, someone shared a video you two were in about your wedding. I'm a nurse and I applaud both of you. I think it's wonderful that he tries so hard despite his challenges and that you try so hard to give 100% and be real about your challenges too. I think this is a wonderful example of Christ-like love and it says a lot about the character of both of you. God bless you both, much love, and support to you.
