"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Over the Years

May 29, 1994
Sometimes it feels like forever.

Other times, it's like we just met.

Of course, in eternal time, it's the snap of His fingers.

September 2003
But if you look at all we've been through together - half a dozen moves (not too many, actually, eh?), four brain surgeries, two births, four cats, raising two kids (yeah - still working on this one), disability, chemotherapy, radiation, finding Christ, loss of family members, jobs, and other things too numerous (and possibly unimportant) to mention - there's no doubt it's been an eventful, wild ride.

May 2008
May 2010
But every moment has been special. A gift from God. And He has always been there for us. And, thank the Lord, we have been there for each other.

Nineteen years ago today, he asked.

One year later - to the day, we did.

And I'd do it - ALL of it, over again.

Happy 18th Anniversary, Marc. I love you more than you can know.

  2. Here's to the next 19! You're right... such a beautiful legacy you're making for your children. You have been through so much; God is using your witness to encourage and strengthen the lives of others.

    Thanks for giving us this glimpse. I'm still hoping to read your story in print at some point down the road!
