    I finished the letter. I'm definitely no Shakespeare but it was inspired by God. My hesitations in writing it had to do with the fact that she may not even read it and even if she does she won't care what it says. I wrote it with God in mind,...

    Here's a couple of responses to Tim's recent responses to my posts: I don't tell her I love her often. I try to limit it to once or twice a day so she DOES know I do. I often add "unconditionally" of "no matter what you do"...

    WOW! What an exciting day. We started off having dinner as a family at 6:00. Some of the kids and my wife are angry at me for this because it is something we have only recently started doing. They are not used to it and they are fighting it. My wife thinks...

    Wow what a journey so far. I have gone from just not wanting to my wife to leave but to a desire for God to be in her life like mine. God has shown me so much patience with my idiocy that that alone causes me to praise him more. (I copied and pasted this...
  • Ed Sheeran- Perfect

    Just a quick thought. A month or so ago I emailed my wife the Ed Sheeran video for his song Perfect. Since then my girls say that when it comes on in the car she turns the station. Conviction?

    I actually made this very simple a while ago. I threw out everything that would interfere with my wife. If she needs me I stop and give her my undivided attention. Right now since she is only home a few days a week this has been relatively easy. My hope...
