Well, truth is a dollar won’t go very far. It didn’t then and it certainly won’t now, but when I saw it I was reminded of how rich I am, not because of the dollar, but because I have Carol for my wife. Proverbs 18:22 says, “He who finds a wife, finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” Well I have been truly “favored” and so even if we go broke, I will still be a rich man because I have her!

We'll Never be Broke
This past week Carol and I “celebrated” the 37th year anniversary of our “first date.” Yup, we were only three! Just kidding, we were actually seniors at
. But did you know she actually asked me out on our first date? That’s because she was on the West High School Homecoming Court and she needed an escort so she chose me and I’m glad she did! Eventually we got married and now thirty four years and four boys later we still love being together. Anyway in reflecting over the years this week, I dug up from the basement a scrapbook she made of our senior year. It’s filled with a whole bunch of memorabilia but at the very end of it I found a dollar. I remember putting it in there and thinking, “this way should we ever get married, we’ll never be broke.”
