Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  Twenty Years and still going strong.

So yesterday was mine and my wife's 20th wedding anniversary. I was sitting on the couch kind of reminiscing, when the wife asked why I was so sad, I should be celebrating, we have been together for twenty years. "I was just thinking back to what your dad said the day I asked him if I could marry you. He said would rather have me put in jail for 20 years than us get married. Just think I would be a free man today if he had done what he said he would do." (Old joke, I know but she hasn't heard it.) She promptly said, "He didn't say that." Then she realized I was joking and smacked me.

Thus our relationship in a nutshell. I say something stupid and she just pretty much ignores it and considers "the source" of the stupid comment. So I guess you could say that she is the reason we have been together for all these years because if she were to take everything I say seriously we would have not stay together for twenty days let alone twenty years.

So here's to you my lovely wife and I hope we have another twenty years to add to these twenty. I love you.

I hope everyone is having a great day,
Joe B

Twenty Years and still going strong.
