Stuff about my wife …
Twenty years ago, I took this gorgeous knockout on a date. Like Jacob in Scripture, I loved her the minute I spotted her, walking the hallways of Skyline High School in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Reflecting back, I can roughly divide our relationship into increments of five—five years of dating, five years with no kids, five years of child bearing, and now five years since the birth of our youngest.
My wife, Kristie, stays busy—homeschooling, nursing weekly at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center and occasionally in an office for a female doctor attending our church, singing, directing Patch the Pirate Club, teaching a Sunday school primary class, hostessing families in our home, organizing church activities, and planning family fun evenings. When she is gone for a ladies’ retreat, the kids receive only microwave popcorn and toast. I would be utterly lost and confused without her. She loves me and prays for me. The only thing she refuses to do is edit any of my SI entries (makes me thankful for Adam Blumer and Lyn Marshall). Occasionally, she will give critical and vital suggestions to my blog entries on www.heartissuesforlds.org or http://heartissuesforlds.wordpress.com. My new year’s resolution for 2007 is to give my wife more back rubs. She definitely deserves them.
