Our 3rd Anniversary

This day marks our third wedding anniversary.

Since February 22nd 2003 I have been blessed by God with the most beautiful, gifted and caring wife a man could ever hope for. And I truly mean that! The second picture was taken by a friend on the morining of our Hochzeit. She is already in her wedding dress.

How did I end up with such a looker?
Prayer and fasting (and hypnosis), of course.

To butcher a rather famous worship song:

Anja you are really my Ehegattin
I love you,
No, honest, I really do.
My 'door kick down' moment
was when I first laid eyes on you.

Chris, congrats. I celebrated my 7th wedding anniversary on Monday with my dear wife Naomi. I also enjoyed your podcast on Paul. I hope to do one on the Gospel and Jesus sometime in the future.

Congrats Chris and Anja!

Nancy and I celebrated our 16th this last July 21. May God continue to grant you blessed bliss for the rest of your marriage!

We were married in 1983- so I guess I'm the old man of the lot. And like all of us who are married- our wives clearly could have done better. Much better. Have the happiest of all anniversaries!

Congratulation Chris & Anja. Sarah & I will have been married for 15 years this July.

Happy anniversary!

(Proof text!):
"Enjoy life with the wife you love, all the days of your vain life that He has given you under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 9:9).

Thank you all for your kind blessings!

Mike, I look forward to the podcast.

Thanks Guy for the prooftext (!), and the rest of you for making us feel so young!

Congratulations to both of you. And Chris, against all expectations you've finally written a decent hymn!

Werte Vorredner!

Leider muß ich allen widersprechen.
"the most beautiful, gifted and caring wife a man could ever hope for" ist seit mehr als 16 Jahren mit mir verheiratet.

But nevertheless: Congratulations!

Thanks Ben!
Seeing as I write so many hymns, it was about time! The laws of probability kicked in.

dilettantus in interrete,
Herzlichen Dank!
Aber ich wiederrspreche deinem Wiederspruch!

Glad you've seen the light, Joshua!

Congrats Chris, send my condolences to Anja. I hope that whatever spell you placed upon her will last from now till forever. No seriously, happy anniversary!! My wife and I are in our 11th year of wedded bliss. A good wife is truly a gift from the Lord.
Take care my friend.
