A little over 23 years ago now I came to know Jesus Christ. I believed that I was a sinner, that God was angry about my sin, that I could not pay the price for what I had done, but that Jesus had paid that price for me and if I would only believe in him and submit my life to him I would have eternal life. "For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son so that whosoever would believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
I'm living proof that that is a real and true promise, and I'm so thankful to God for it.
And then three years after I came to know and follow Jesus, I met my wife to be, Kimberly, who loves him as much as I do. We dated for a year (long-distance), were engaged for a year (because of the distance), and were then married on Nov 29, 1991. This Sunday we celebrate our 18th anniversary and I'm so grateful to Jesus for her as well! We've been seeking and serving him together all these years and I don't know what I'd do without her.
There's so much more that I'm thankful for but I'll leave it at this for now. May the name of Jesus Christ be glorified this day!
