An Imperfect, Joyous Wife

August 24, 2002
My sister took that picture twelve years ago today, not long after a pastor friend of John's pronounced us Man and Wife.

Wife. At age 48, after decades of wrestling with the Lord and falsely believing He wanted me to remain single and miserable, I became John's wife. I took his last  name, moved 3000 miles from my family and  friends, and adapted my life to his. I struggled with submission, saw more sin in my life than I expected to see, and slowly let go of my past  to join his present. Yet over the years of being a terribly imperfect wife to an almost perfect man, I've grown in my gratitude that the  Lord has blessed me with the joy of being John's Wife.
