WHY ME, LORD?

The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad. Psalm 126:3

Why me, Lord? What did I ever do to deserve Karen Sue?  Loving her’s been easier than anything I’ll ever do!

Fifty-five years ago today a hayseed 2nd Lt. in the USAF married up…way up–the General’s daughter. In spite of innumerable provocations since, she has never pulled rank on me! 

We were not equally yoked in a far more important way–she was not a Christian (and I was a poor one), though we made our vows in a Christian Chapel at Ent Air Force Base, Colorado Springs. But our Sovereign God was gracious through many dangers, toils and snares. The day our son was baptized, so was she with our first-born in her arms, in a profoundly moving sacrament in the base chapel at RAF Lakenheath, England, “…in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” That same Triune God has been our foundation, our rock in all our days. Amazing, amazing grace!
