May 3rd marked the one year anniversary of my ResplendentBride‘s homegoing.
A year ago today was to be my Resplendent Bride’s new birthday.

(This article was originally part of a larger exegesis on Psalm 23. I also gave it as a Chapel message at Emmaus Bible College.)
The Lord As Shepherd Means: The Lord Comforts.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Welcome In The Name Of The Father, The Son, And The Holy Spirit.
Around this time last year my Resplendent Bride wrote this note on her CaringBridge site,
“Looks Good On You, Babe Part 1”
Welcome In The Name Of The Father, The Son, And The Holy Spirit
Whether you face the trepidation of being alone on Valentine’s Day, or the trepidation of transforming yourself into a romantical beast: you no doubt need a Gospel recalibration for Valentine’s Day.
The Cross of Christ teaches us that Love is sacrifice, forgiveness, and long suffering.
By way of a Valentine’s Day Recalibration EvanWelcher.com happily offers a trio of articles composed of my humble thoughtlings concerning Christian Marriage as it pertains to my Resplendent Bride’s fight against the cancer.

1. In “The Cancer, 15 Months, And The Sovereignty Of God” I wrestle with practical implications of being essentially Reformed while asking myself, “What if God did take her away?”
2. “The Cancer & The Christ (Where Was God During The Cancer? Everywhere He Needed To Be.” is new to the Internet, and is a sermon I gave at First Christian Church on 3.21.13. This sermon aimed to answer the question: Where is God when we suffer? I hope this is useful to both those whom are married as well as those whom wish to be married, one fine day.
3. In “How To Keep Your ‘I Do’ In The Present Tense” I flesh out how a Cross shaped marriage is key to covenant keeping.
Don Henley of “Eagles” fame once sang, “I had a good life, before you came.”
And so it was with me.
