thank my wife, Ginelle, publicly. She is my hero. She has always been there for me through all the trials. She is my best friend on this earth. She is my soul mate. What can I say I love her!
We have been married for seventeen years. Both of us were married before and we have five kids between us. We have six wonderful grandchildren. I am grateful to God for giving me a second chance at love and family. I am so thankful that he brought her into my life. There’s a song that I heard playing at the gym today that says “some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this.” I understand that, and am
glad that that moment that happened eighteen years when we met at the water fountain at Lake Geneva Bible Camp in Alexandria, MN at an Al Denson Concert on October 19th, 1995, has turned from that beginning moment into a lifetime of moments.
Ginelle, had to do a lot of the things that I couldn’t do when I was very sick and in horrible pain. She mowed the lawn, paid the bills, etc. Things that I normally did. It would break my heart to not to be able to help her and see her having to do it all. She wore a lot of hats. She is just a great wife! She virtually never complained and always a source of encouragement for me not to give up. The Lord told me once that if not for her encouragement, my trial was so severe, that I wouldn’t have made it through to victory.
I don’t know how to thank her. Words fall short! I have thought this many times: a lifetime is too short to
spend with someone that you cherish and love. I know that there is no marriage in heaven, but if there was I would like to ask the Lord to allow me to share my mansion in heaven with her. It would be my honor and privilege.
