Half a Century

Post date: Oct 15, 2009 3:02:27 PM

Renate hit a milestone last month and now I need to get used to the fact I am married to a 50-year-old. She always takes everything in stride and this birthday is no different. I am thankful for my wife. I am thankful that she has spent 29 of those years with me. I am thankful for her wisdom, her grace, and her gifts. Even her imperfections are a perfect fit for me. In the next months, she will be engaging in new challenges as she continues her work in curriculum preparation and revision. The Brazilian Regular Baptist Press will be commissioning her to write, develop, and revise educational material. This has been in the works for some time but it appears she will be taking on some concrete projects. Her ministry with ESL and translation continues and doors are constantly opened. “Thank you Lord, as it looks like Renate’s second half century is shaping up to be even more blessed than her first!!!”
