another year in the life of this man has passed, which i am grateful for as i have been able to share another year of living and learning with him.J, i am so thankful for how we met in japan and developed a deep friendship. it was God's perfect timing as he drew our lives together in an unexpected way. we have shared the highs and lows of life and it keeps getting better. thank you for being my wonderful encourager, comforter and best friend. i cannot wait to see what God has in store for us for the coming year as we continue to share life together!
