Miranda and I at Multnomah Falls (August, 2010)

Today is my wife’s birthday. It is a day when I am reminded that you never know whose life will be changed for the better because someone was born. While I am not one of those who uses language like “soul-mate”, because I don’t believe in that kind of determinism, I would say that God had Miranda in mind for me. I don’t know how much meddling God does to bring people together but I am so very thankful that it happened.

When the sage wrote, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” (Prov. 18.22) he had a woman like Miranda in mind. Of course, I can’t take much credit for “finding” her. She came my way and I was just blessed enough to catch her!

I love you Miranda! Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful year ahead of you and I am thankful for having the privilege to have shared the previous one with you.
