The Giver of all good things.

Well I started the 3rd round of chemo today ( Yeah,) but seriously it is going pretty good so far I'm not too tired, some side affects starting up but nothing severe hoping it stays that way.

(put this down for few days)

The Lord has brought to the fore front of my mind how blessed I am to have Elizabeth as a wife. She has, and continues, to extend herself in so many ways. It is not surprising really so many times in the past she has extended herself to so many people, a lot of people have eaten her lasagna or chicken and rice dinner through the years. There has been many times she has watched kids on short notice because people had an issue come up, and needed some one to watch their kids for a few hours, or a couple of days. She's even took calls in the middle of the night to go to their house to watch kids so they could deal with a crisis that came up. So it really isn't surprising how she has served me during this time. She is a testament to God's kindness to me. It is kind of funny how I was so nervous before we got married. How bad was it? Well Dave Miller, the pastor who married us still says I was he worst case of cold feet he has ever seen. But God was gracious to me and gave me the courage to say I do, to marry her. After asking Jesus to be my Lord and Savior it was the best thing have ever done. We haven't always had a lot of money, but truthfully I was never, so rich as the day I married Elizabeth. James 1:17 says, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." That is Elizabeth, a good gift from God to me, our kids, and so many others. Now she isn't perfect she has sin and faults like everybody else, That is why she has put her trust in Jesus Christ too. But I can't think of anybody else I would want to through life and cancer with other than Elizabeth. Later this month we will celebrate 25 years. I hope God will give us a few more. So thank you Lord for giving Elizabeth for a wife a further testament or your loving kindness to me.
