My friend, Steve, made a comment in my last post about how courageous Debbie is. I want to say how grateful I am for my wife. Being married to me, she has been on one wild ride. I know each pastoral/spiritual move we have made has been challenging. I also know the changes in my theology have been challenging. And now our decision to explore Eastern Orthodoxy will probably pose even more and greater challenges. But through it all, Debbie has expressed her love, respect and trust as we attempt to find what is truly best for our family. I am such a blessed man to have her for my wife. She’s my best friend and her strength constantly astounds me.
There’s a chorus from a Sister Hazel song that expresses my feelings:
“I wanna tell everybody everybodythat you’re so much more than they’ve ever even seen beforeAnd I wanna tell everybody everybodyIf they touched your hand then they’d never want to let you go.”
I love you, Deb!
