Recipe for a great marriage:

1 girl who loves God

1 boy who loves God

1 cup of laughter

2 cups of grace

1 cup  prayer

1 cup  prayers of the people

16 oz. of blood, sweat and tears

32 oz. of joy

Mix it altogether.

Bake in a few trials.

Tie it all up with the twine of the Holy Spirit.

I love you Carl!

Thanks for a wonderful 25 years.

Oh what the Lord has done in our lives together and

what He has yet to surprise us with in the years to come.

I am so glad that you and I get to be in the front row together

to witness His glory!

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we

ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout

all generations, for ever and ever!


Ephesians 3: 20,21

His work has been immeasurable in both of us!

    Your recipe is lovely as well. 🙂 I am going to pass it on to our newlyweds.We are visiting them now, and what a blessing it is to be with them in their cozy Montana home. 🙂


  4. Wow, what a great recipe although I may add a few more cups of prayer! I’m honored to have spent the past 25 years with you on this journey and excited to spend the next 25 with you!
