Eight Years

This past week I celebrated eight years of marriage. Seeing as how having time to spend with my wife has become more and more scarce these past few months, I purposefully turned off my laptop, and wrote nothing except answer a few e-mails for an entire week. I know this may seem odd to some, but once in awhile one needs to unplug. I spent the week actually cooking with the wife, using our barbeque, talking, (something we haven't had time to do in what seems like ages), taking walks, watching thunderstorms, listening to the rain on the window, in short, just being normal again.
Some time ago I posted an article on the Hand of Help website about having balance in all things, and this past week has served to counterballance my mercilessly busy schedule as of late.
I will be posting the continuation of the teaching on the way into the Kingdom by Monday morning at the latest.

With love in Christ,

Michael Boldea Jr.

Congratulations to both of you. It is wonderful to have a true partner in Christ, one who knows and shares your vision and supports your work. I thank God for you and pray that you will not only grow old together, but be ever so united in the love of Christ and His purpose for your lives.

Happy Anniversary.

I understand walking away to smell the roses together in life. We (an old married couple) are leaving in the morning for a week away from everything.

May your lives grow sweeter and richer together.

Dear Michael,

For the past week, I've been away from home and also away from computers, so I've spent the past hour getting somewhat caught up with your blog postings. I must confess that tears welled up in my eyes and sorrow in my heart at the thought of your leaving our country permanently. I'll be VERY happy for you and your wife, and also for your homeland, but oh, what a void you will be leaving behind! For quite a few years, I've been following your words and movements, not to mention those of your dear grandfather. It's difficult to think of your leaving and taking with you so much of what little true light remains in this land. But how can I blame you for longing to leave a country that is destroying itself from the inside out with incredible speed? Part of me would even go with you. Few here seem to listen, but perhaps in Romania many are ready to hear the gospel after all of their hardships.

I am so GRATEFUL that you have spent so many years sharing with us the unembellished truth of God. I hope the Lord will allow you to keep feeding your hungry stateside lambs through this blog, even though an ocean may lie between you and us.

Thank you for sharing with us the specialness of your anniversary. I add my joy to yours, and trust our Lord to keep you and your family in His tender care, wherever you happen to be.

Congratulations! Although I miss reading what you have to share with us, it is good to know that you took some time for just the two of you. Blessings to the two of you and may you have many years of wonderful memories.
Love in Yeshua,

Happy Anniversary. My husband and I were married in June of 2000 also.

It is amazing how God shows you everyday, that yes, He is with us, and yes, I am with the one God chose for me.

Congratulations to you and Monica. Good on you for taking the time out! (that's a really Australian expression - I should have added 'mate' on the end!)
