In two days, on July 19, my wife, Kristy, and I will celebrate 17 years of marriage. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs in those 17 years. The ups include the births of our three children, purchasing two houses, our involvement in many productions and many friends made over the years. Some of the downs have included several mis-carriages (including three late-term), financial difficulties, family “squabbles” and even some disagreements between the two of us.
Through it all, the one thing that has kept the marriage going more than anything else is our constant faith in God. When we look back over the 17 years, we can clearly see God’s providence over and over as we have dealt with the “downs” and God’s provision of the “ups” too.
