35 years

Today marks 35 years since Jeanette and I were married.

When I was much younger I always used to have this idea that you should have or would find a sweetheart on Valentines Day. Twenty-three of them went by with no Valentine. But, no more.

I am so thankful for Jeanette.

She is the one who brought me out of my shyer self of younger years. (I was too embarrassed to ask a waitress for a glass of water.)

She has been a constant source of encouragement and prayer.

She has been my best friend for all of these years.

She has lifted me up more times than I can remember.

I love her.


  1. Happy 35 Anniversary, Kevin and Jeanette. May God bless you with many more!! Looking pretty good, you two!!! You've got a few years on us (2.5). Take care!!Happy Valentine's Day, too.

    "O give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures for ever." Psalm 136:26

  2. Thank you, Honey, for saying this. You are my hero. I hope the Lord gives us another 35.

    On the other hand, come to take us Home,Lord Jesus!

    Love you oodles,

  3. May our gracious Heavenly Father give you another 35 more!


  4. What a beautiful tribute! May you have many, many more anniversaries to celebrate!

    I used to look so longingly at the Valentine's Cards when they came out in the stores, and wistfully look forward to the day I could send one to my very own Valentine. It took a couple of decades to link to him, but my hubby was well worth the wait!
