"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." James Madison

Happy Anniversary

Today, my wife and I celebrate 18 years of marriage.

Our marriage has not always been peaches and cream, but because we put our faith in God, I believe He has blessed us far beyond anything our finite minds can comprehend. As typical, selfish temptations will continue to distract us, but a disciplined prayer life from our parents, godly advice from good friends, and a personal relationship with the Creator has kept us from harm's way.

To the wife of my youth:

I love you.
