It’s that time of year again when we pause to honor the women who have sacrificed so much on our account—not to mention giving birth and making possible our very lives.
And so, my heartfelt gratitude goes out to those strong, dignified, jovial, kind, devoted, hard-working women in my life. To my wife, Gabrielle, my mom, Joy, and my mother-in-law, Lorelle–God’s blessings and thank you.
When I consider God’s faithfulness, beauty, and mercy in my life and home today, indeed, the credit goes to you. And his goodness is sure . . .
