Still Counting…

Twenty three years and 1 day ago I married Chilly!

Here’s what I wrote in my journal yesterday….

“Chilly is…
Strong, full of faith & desire to serve jesus with all his heart,
soul, mind & strength;
Faithful, true to his word, kind, funny, dependable;
Hard-working, cares for his family,
filled with determination and The Holy Spirit.
I’m so thankful to be married to a man I can trust and
depend upon every time.
Thank You, Jesus, for joining us together for these 8395 days….
and still counting!
I love him!!!”


I’ve been married to this wonderful man for  8396 days … and still counting!


An Anniversary by the Numbers


It was 22 years ago today that

I became the bride & wife of the man I

love, adore, respect and many other things

for which I thank JESUS daily!





22 yrs of marriage

5 children

12 addresses

5 states

7 places of ministry

16 cars    (I think… if you count “Sgt”)

4 couches

1 coffee table

5 dogs

many struggles

countless joys

1000’s of lives introduced to Jesus

0 thoughts of divorce

0 times it was questioned if it “was the right thing to do”

0 worries about unfaithfulness

A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense.

Through knowledge it’s rooms are filled with all sorts of precious

riches & valuables. Proverbs 24:3,4


I love you, Chilly!
