Another Anniversary–God Vindicates!

06 me

Ten years.

Today, I would have been married ten years. But different plans were in the works….

God has taken the shipwreck of my first marriage and built a new, better life out of the reclaimed wood. I am so thankful for the new life He has given me. God has truly been my Vindication.

The irony of this day is how I will observe it. Tonight, I am taking my daughter, Munchkin, out for a daddy-daughter date. She is truly a ray of bright sunshine in my life. I would not trade being her “Daddy” for anything in the world. (Nor would I trade being married to “Mrs. DM,” my true friend and most equal partner.)

This “observance” is ironic as my ex-wife leveled accusations on the way to the divorce about how I would be an unfit father who would let my children starve. 

So, on this–what would’ve been our tenth anniversary–I take out my step-daughter to eat. Ha! God got the last laugh on this one. And I am so thankful for the new life and new family He has given me!

  1. “an unfit father who would let my children starve.”

    If she has to say crap like this, you must be a man God who makes God proud. If she had something real to throw at you, she wouldn’t be hitting you with baseless accusations…

    Munchkin is such a cutie. Certainly looks like a child that’s taken care of to me 🙂

  2. Congratulations for ten years not spent in misery. Apparently not only are you able to feed a small child, but you have chosen to Father a child not of your loins. How outstanding is that, when so many fathers completely walk away from their responsibilities.
    What a wonderfully radiant wife you have. Her light is apparent in a simple photo.
    I’m sorry about the preliminary results you had to go through to get the true Gift…..Beautiful.
