Galena, Illinois was “born” in 1826. It is known as the town that time forgot. This beautiful town is filled with shops, candy, lots of chocolate, delicious coffee, great eateries and, apparently, ghosts! This is my bride, and we enjoyed celebrating 39 years together in Galena!

still here we are
For us, January 1st is Happy Anniversary as well as Happy New Year. So, in honor of my bride: just look at those kids kneeling in stillness about to unfold a story to be told of their love just look at those kids praying and longing about to discover the path is so steep and love will require more than they know still here we are still telling a story older now somehow still here we are just look at those kids i do let’s go i’m yours your love is true through all the hurts pain and sorrow you still said yes through each tomorrow you love so well with grace and kindness staying by my side oh Ruth so grateful you’re by my side still here we are still telling a story older now somehow still here we are just look at those kids dear God thank you for the journey and for taking care of those kids and thank you for the gift of that high school girl who so long ago was kneeling beside me and still is
the doctors said you were leaving i don’t see a world without you time stopped and crashed and just shattered no God please not you so many whispered ‘Our Father…’ pleading grace and mercy for you He heard all our cries every whisper a new story was written for you
undeserving and grateful we’re still here and i’m blessed to be loved by you every breath is a gift in every joy every sorrow each moment a fading song but we sing out loud into the unknown tomorrow time may fracture again so we whisper
our Father in heaven above may your name be first in our eyes may your kingdom thrive in our hearts and lives may your will be done in our love while we’re still here on earth as it is in heaven
