16 Years of Marriage

Posted on Updated on

Sixteen years ago today, Liz and I stood at the altar and made a commitment to each other for the rest of our lives.

Here is a brief snapshot of our blessed life together since that day:

Kids:

2 boys…who are very much boys

Animals:

2 dogs

0 cats (this number will remain the same)

A dozen or so lizards…maybe more…maybe less…don’t ask

moving truck

 

9 inter-state moves

 

12 houses

Too many training exercises, military operations, and deployments to count…

 

Tears…many

 

Laughs…many more

 

On the day I left for bootcamp in 1996, Liz handed me a small leather bound Bible.  She told me she had underlined one verse that spoke from her heart. I spent the next 2 hours on the plane looking for her message.  I found it in the Book of Ruth.

3 years of long distance dating and 16 years of marriage and she has never wavered from those words.

To the girl of my dreams, my bride of 16 years; I hope you know:

You still fascinate and inspire me.

You still influence me for the better.

You’re still the object of my desire.

Thank you for another wonderful day of marriage.
