THANKFULNESS & FAITH: Life, Friendship, Courtship, Marriage, Pregnancy, Family

From This Moment On / You’re Still the One, a Shania Twain’s Medley by Caleb and Kelsey was the song that Andrew and Evelyn danced to on their wedding day. …

From the moment Andrew saw Evelyn he was attracted to her …..and though Evelyn’s attraction was one that grew over time, the more she got to know him. It seems clear that they are both today saying, You are still the one…. the one that I choose to be by my side, the one I choose to protect, the one I choose to serve, the one I choose to produce another life with… The one I choose to raise a child with…… The one I choose to be Thankful with…

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” –1st Corinthians 2:9:KJV

Marriage and business takes commitment double fold. Commitment to marriage and commitment to business. It also takes a very conscious commitment to not allow disagreements on either front to impact the other… well then, maybe this commitment thing is more than a double fold.. triple, quadruple?…. what do you think? What is certain is, it takes commitment.

Ten Years Later: A Continuous Ministry of Love

“..the Creator ‘made them male and female’…”

– Matthew 19:4:NIV

NOW: 10 YEARS LATER – 10/16/2020
Est. 10/16/2010

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

– Philippians 1:6:NIV

Ten years later… a whole decade of loving one another and loving others through ministry. A commitment to forever. Forever loving each other. Forever loving God and His people.

Chris & Pam selected the song, This Is For The Lover In You for their marriage song. The lyrics of this song are so fitting for this couple, not only in their marriage but with their relationships with others and in ministry. Take for instance, these lines:

More Than Jungle Fever…

Love Surviving & Thriving in the Midst of Hate

Love DOES see color BUT Love ALSO embraces color….

There has always been the side eye by some, both men and women, both black and white. There would be whispers of:

he is with her because…

she is with him because…

…Remarks that are not even worth repeating… Neither of us understood, nor do we understand now, why some thought we both betrayed “our people” because we fell in love and choose to love each other.

A Twenty-four Year Marriage Journey

“What God has joined together, let no one separate”

Matthew 19:6

Then: September 21, 1996 -Myreon and Kenya

You Changed My Life is Myreon and Kenya’s wedding song. Isn’t that exactly what happens when we allow another person in our lives? Particularly when we allow ourselves to love that person and in return that person loves us back.

Myreon and Kenya celebrated their 24-year wedding anniversary on September 21, 2020. They have been boyfriend and girlfriend for 30 years, which they celebrated at the beginning of this month: September 1, 2020. September is undoubtedly their personal love month.




There is something timeless about love. It looks and feels better as time passes. There is something magical about love. It sees past our mishaps. There is something endless about love. It endures things unimaginable. There is something spectacular about love. Beyond the glitz and glamor, it’s just two people deciding each day to try a little harder than they did the day before.


The Ups, The Downs….and all The In-Betweens

us green dressWho ever said marriage was a fairy tale lied! It is far from it. Now don’t get me wrong… Marriage is beautiful, it is euphoric at times, like a perfect spring day. Ready to give to you all its perfection. At other times, it is intensely difficult, like navigating your way through a foreign country of which you do not speak the language. Oh and then there are times when its neither a place of triumph or defeat but instead a place that is almost indescribable…, its dry and desolate and at the same time lush and happy… marriage is everything one hopes it will be and at times everything one hopes it would never be.
