Proverbs 18:22 (ESV)
He who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord
August 23, 1985 I was blessed beyond measure to marry Becky Ann Vander Boegh.
Your name, Becky, is a name representing beauty in the Bible. The Hebrew origin of your name comes from a word meaning “faithful wife”. I am honored to be your husband and best friend.
Becky, thank you for 31 years of:
Friendship…it is a dream come true to be your spouse’s best friend. It has taken a lot of sacrifice and effort on both our parts, but it is oh so worth it! Thank you!
Encouragement…you have prodded me onward many times when I wanted to quit. I wouldn’t be where I am today had it not been for you! Thank you!
Belief in me…you have been my biggest fan. You have believed in me when I didn’t believe in me. Thank you!
Faithfulness…never have I questioned your fidelity to me or to our Lord. Like the sun that rises every morning and the moon every evening, great is your faithfulness. Thank you!
Love and respect…you have loved me even when I was not loveable and respected me when I was not respectable. Thank you!
You have been a wonderful mother to our boys. Each of them love you so dearly. You have been to them a mentor, an example, a teacher, a comfort, a place to turn for insight and wisdom, a friend, a role model, a light, a wrestling buddy and one in whom they can trust. You have made them secure in your love and pointed them to the One above! We all thank you!
Becky, you make me smile and laugh. You are forgiving, patient, kind, gracious and understanding. You are my greatest listener. You pick me up when I am down. You follow me all around! I am so glad we are on this journey together!
You are the highlight of each and every day of my life!
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
And so I say to you my wife:
Your Ron and Charlie rise up and bless you; your husband also, and he praises you, saying: many women have done nobly, but you excel above them all. Proverbs 31:28-29 New Ron Version
Dear Lord, thank You for giving us Your love to share with others. We pray that You willcontiue to bless our marriages. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
