18 Blessed Years


Tomorrow, August 5, Verne and I will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. As you can see from the picture, I was a very happy girl. I'm an even happier woman.

I believe that the LORD created me specifically for Verne. He's my best friend, and my forever love.

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine. Song of Solomon 6:3
