Throughout our years of marriage, Christine has been a homemaker and mother, and my encourager and support. We served within the church together but undoubtedly my role, my positions and my educational opportunities cast public light upon my accomplishments more than upon hers. I honour her as a gifted, loving woman who makes a habit of thinking first of someone else before herself.
I echo Bette Midler in her well known ‘The Wind Beneath My Wings.’
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.
Today I pay tribute to Christine.
Proverbs 12:4 "A wife of noble character is her husband's crown..."
Proverbs 18:22 "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD."
