well, my husband and i celebrated 13 years of marriage on monday! it feels like it was yesterday that he was sending me letters thru other people in elementary school! he's such a cutie. i could go on forever...most of you know that already! but i will simply say that he is the best thing outside of my salvation that has ever happened to me. he truly is my best friend. we have so much fun together!

i am so glad the Lord allowed us to be together! of course, michael says he knew since he was in about 5th grade that we would be married one day...i, on the other hand, had to be convinced! ;) but he was right. in fact, the Lord placed him in my life as a 'boyfriend' in the right exact moment. i was surely headed down a path in my teenage life that truly could have led to disaster. i am so thankful to the Lord for giving me a husband who loves Him, his family, his church, and lost sinners.

God is so good! our church members surprised us with an overnight get away. what an unexpected blessing. we have been blessed with a church that is mindful of us and takes such good care of us. we do not deserve to have the wonderful people that we do, but are extremely thankful for them! so we left the kiddos with various sitters from church and off we went. we enjoyed the time to get away and focus just on one another. we were able to talk and laugh and relax.....it was great!

so thanks to all of the members of VBC for caring for us and loving us and being so thoughtful!
I love you michael don wiggins with all of my heart....i am forever yours!

That was very nice of your church to surprise you like that. Maybe you could post later with the details? Where did you go?

Congratulations to 2 great friends!
