Today is my wife’s birthday day. It is also my mother’s birthday. I want to wish both of them a very happy birthday. I thank God for my mother. She taught me the Word of God and more than any other person inspired me to get into my Bible and to learn to study it and teach it.

Happy Birthday mother. Thanks for all you have done for me.

Betty you have been the greatest gift that God ever gave me. I do not have words nor any other means to ever express my great love to you. Thanks for being my friend. Thanks for being my wife. Thanks for being my coworker in the work of the Lord Jesus. Thanks for encouraging me. Thanks for standing with me through thick and thin, literally and figuratively. You are the greatest woman on this planet. I love you.

Thanks for being a godly mother. Thank you for raising children that would do right, love God, love His service. Thank you for always contacting the children. Keeping showing your love all these years. You are a great wife and mother.

Thanks for putting a heart for God into our children. Thank you for all the night time prayers, the meals prepared, the clothes purchased and cared for every day. Thank you for the example you have shown our children about how to be a godly woman, a great wife, a marvelous mother, a faithful friend, a person who loves God and church.

From the time they were small until they were big you were there. You have cared for them and everyone else that God put in your way. You are a Dorcas woman if there ever was one. I love you and thank you. I hope you enjoy today thinking of how good God has been to you.

No telling how many times we have walked down a church aisle. Many times in a wedding vow renewal service or to enter a church and share our burden to get the gospel to the world. You have been by my side and been my greatest supporter for all these years. Thanks.

d

How many meals have you cooked? How many people have you served? You have always been hard at the work of the Lord and I am so proud of you.

Not really sure what I thought when you got into handling snakes though. I do know this, I wasn’t by your side.

So on this your birthday, I want you to know how much I love you. I want to wish you your best day yet. I thank God for the 37 years He has given us together so far and look forward to another 30 years together or until He comes.

Here comes the ladies picture that made my day. I was in Burkina Faso and got this picture from John Pearson. It made my day. Thank you my love.
