For many, the #13 is seen as unlucky. It represents bad luck, hotels skip the floor in the number system, and few dare to wear #13 as a jersey number. For Cindy and I, we both wore #13 in our “playing days” and have never viewed it as unlucky. Yesterday, we celebrated 13 years of marriage.
I am such a blessed man with a wife who loves me unconditionally. A wife who challenged me in my faith early in our marriage. A wife who has tolerated my mood swings, crazy behavior at times, and my many sports rants. I love how God has connected us 2 on such a deep level that He pressed on our hearts to become missionaries at the same time. Cindy has followed God’s lead and honors me as the head of our family. I love her heart for missions. Her heart for children. Her heart for me.
I so look forward to the next 13 years with her and beyond. What a gift from God. A wonderful wife, mother, sister, and daughter. She is my heart and I am blessed to be serving in Cusco with her.
