I am very pleased and gratified to announce that as of September 1, 2009, my lovely spouse and I will have experienced 25 years of domestic (bliss/tranquility/union/you supply the word). In the course of that time I have learned that the only way through it at times is one day at a time--but that at most times it seems that we swallow days, weeks, even months whole--that time flies by us and we grow used to each other and familiar. But there is never an end to surprises and to the joy that comes from them.
I implore your prayers for a continuation of this until it pleases God to see us home. No half-measures please.
