19 years married to the same woman

And I consider myself a lucky man. Many people were worried when we got married, I was only 22 and my wife was 18. We had two children right away, and then were deep in ministry. It has been a rough ride at time, and at times filled with incredible beauty. Our theology has changed, our circumstances have changed, and our goals have changed, but what hasn't changed is our love and commitment to each other. We find ourselves at a new crossroads, where children are talking about leaving for university. And the things we are sure of is this:

God will go with us

We will go with each other

somehow, someway it will lead us deeper into God's kingdom

I am very thankful,

"One would expect it to be zero amoungst true Christians."

Dude, your definition of 'true' Christian is rather perverse. The only difference between a divorced christian and one who hasn't is how they have fucked up.

Its is just easier to see how they have fucked up. It doesn't indicate any difference though on the occurrence of fuck ups though. We all have, we all will.

Please remember to strive for the stars though, just as long as you cope with failure
