Don't take my wife

Please. I can't even begin to tell you what she means to me. Lisa has become as important to me these past few months as my own hands. I really wish I could even begin to repay her for her working full time and taking care of me this summer. It's been rough because I can't do the things as a husband that I would be typically doing, working, helping take out the trash, doing other misc husband support activities, so I know it's been hard on her. I know two years ago when we stood in front of a lot of you and said our vows to each other that we had no idea we would ever be going through something like this together so soon in our lives together. God however had other plans and has chosen to strengthen the relationship that we have/had already with this event. I don't know what the future holds, but I seriously hope I get the chance to spend many, many more years telling her how much I love and appreciate everything she's done for me.

Lisa I love you so far beyond what I did two years ago. I pray that what God has for the two of us involves many years together, children to pass His and our love onto, and a platform to tell the world how much God has done for the two of us. My thanks cannot be heartfelt enough or "I love you" said more passionately by me at this time.

Lisa you are the second most important thing in my life, and you have been a rock to me. Thank you.



  1. Happy Anniversary Ben & Lisa!

    We're looking forward to being able to see you both a lot more often! Adam starts the 23rd, so we'll be around starting then. We'll check with you as soon as we get up there to see when we can come visit.

    Miss you guys :-)

  2. Wow...that was wonderful! Lisa is an amazing woman. I praise God daily for putting her in your life. She is a wonderful daughter-in-law too! Adam, Sheli, and Erin stopped by last night before returning to Ellensburg. Lisa's name came up somehow in conversation. Erin said, "Lisa is truly the sweetest person I have ever met."

    "An excellent wife, who can find? Her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain." You have been given an excellent wife!!!

    It is truly a GREAT blessing to have a wonderful wife. I can't even imagine where I would be without your mother. I am amazed at how God has brought such a wonderful woman into your life and we get some of the benifits too. I know this is not the way you would have planned a second anniversary, but you can rest in the fact that you are exactly where God wants you to be. Thank you Lisa for taking care of our son sooo well! I am so happy to have a daughter like you.
