I am excited for the evening! Tonight Sonya and I get to go on a date. My parents are coming to get the kids and we will be off to eat a nice med. rare steak for dinner. It has been quite some time since Sonya and I have had a dinner to ourselves. Too busy with ministry and a 19 month old running around. But tonight is the night.
I feel blessed to have a wife such as Sonya. She is truly a trooper. In the last two weeks I have been gone about six evenings. Busy seasons come in ministry but it is usually the pastor’s wife that bears the brunt of it. When I am gone, Sonya gets little relief from child-rearing. I thank God often for a wife who will keep going even when it is tough.
