One of the joys of marriage is the laughter.
For me one of the great joys of life is making my wife laugh.
Thank you, Helen, for laughing at my jokes.
Even more so, my wife is a great listener to my stories. Whereas I am a very impatient listener, Helen is great at listening carefully to my excited thoughts about a book I am reading, or an issue I am struggling with, or the events of a meeting.
I love the expression of unity we share in recounting the day’s details of an evangelistic encounter or a difficult pastoral issue. My ministry is her ministry also. The struggles are shared and the joys are shared. Helen is a great sharer with me.
