“There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Yes, four which I do not understand:
The way of an eagle in the air;
The way of a serpent upon a rock;
The way of a ship in the midst of the sea;
And the way of a man with a maid.” (Prov30:18-19)
35 years ago we were on a honeymoon to the Oregon coast. The picture is grainy but the memories are sweet!
I married the bright, vivacious, generous, fun-loving, can-do Pam Grogan, my lover, my friend, my counselor, my prod, my perspective glass. She has challenged me, believed in me, exhorted me and been faithful to her vows.
Pam has been the single, most remarkable person I have known. So decisive, determined, devoted! She has generously given me four stellar children whom she has raised to be people of excellence.
The proverb says, “Behind ever great man there is a woman.” Sometimes she is rolling her eyes! No pretense to greatness; I certainly did marry out of my league in terms of passion for Jesus, resolve to seek Him out and keep the fires stoked!
With Pam it is easy to say, “Many women have done noble things, but you excel them all!” (Prov 31:29)
“Give her of the fruit of her hands; And let her works praise her in the gates!” (Prov 31:31)
