Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa was the site of two of the greatest accomplishments of my youth. The first was getting the powers that be at FBBC to award me a degree without them realizing how much I still I still had to learn. My second, and greatest accomplishment, was convincing the most beautiful and talented woman on campus to marry me!
This Sunday, May 30, Sandy and I will have been married 35 years and we will be celebrating on a week long cruise. Today, I want to exercise my editorial prerogatives and preempt Jay’s daily posting so I can use this space to “rise up and call her blessed.” I don’t believe I have ever conducted a marriage counseling session when, after dismissing the couple, I did not give thanks to God for His goodness in giving Sandy to me. If I ever publish a study bible I would place a picture of her in the margin next to Proverbs 31.
Happy Anniversary, Babe. I love you!
