Happy Birthday to my beloved wife!!!

“An excellent wife who can find?  She is far more precious than jewels.”  Proverbs 31:10

Today is very special day in my family.  Today is Sherry’s birthday!!!  For the past 23 years I have been able to shower her with love and token gifts that reflect her value in my life.

This is the first time I have been away from her on her birthday.  This day finds me in Malawi Africa with a great mission team.  I know my bride would not have me anywhere else.  I am writing today to say, “Happy birthday to her.”  But to also ask that each of you would send her an email today wishing her a happy birthday.  Here is here email, sherryjoseph502@gmail.com

Sherry, thank you for being the best part of my life (other than Jesus).  For 23 years I have loved you and have been loved by you.  Those first two years before we married were days spent in praying that God would allow me to marry you. The last 21 have been in thankfulness for God placing you in my life.

You have given me more than I could ever place in an email. Thank you for 21 years of seeing the best pastors wife living her life in front of me.  Thank you for being my partner in the good times and in the bad times.  Thank you for being the mother of 6 children.  Three have given us joy in this life and all six will give us joy in heaven.  Thank you for always reminding me of the why of ministry!  Thank you for enduring 21 years of preaching and many hours of being alone as I serve the church.

In our night stand is your birthday card with a letter that says what I cannot say here.  Just know I love you and I am with you in spirit on this special day when we celebrate the day God gave you to this world.

Happy Birthday Babe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
