It’s official!! PB has earned his Doctor of Ministry (and third bar) from Wesley Theological Seminary! Our first of several May celebrations was PB’s graduation yesterday. The cubs all did very well throughout the commencement. Over spring break, we were talking about PB being finished wih his dissertation and Cub 2 had lots of questions about what kind of doctor he was going to be. After trying to explain to him that it wasn’t a “physician” doctor, Cub 2 said, “Oh! So, you’re a preaching doctor!” PB has had so much going on in the midst of taking classes and writing his dissertation that I can’t believe he managed to finish on time! We are very, very proud of him and I’m glad to be along for this ride into whatever God has in store for us next!
When I think back to the first few years of our relationship and marriage, I had serious trust issues due to previous bad relationships. I went from the emotional abuser – to the hustling thug – to the “my baby’s daddy” drama before God placed PB in my path. Unfortunately for him, he had to peel away layer upon layer upon layer of broken promises, shattered self-esteem, and just not believing God could or would bless me to be truly happy in a relationship. I’m so thankful that he’s never stopped saying I love you. He’s never stopped saying that I’m the most beautiful woman in the world to him. He’s never stopped treating me like the most precious gift he’s ever been given. It’s a great feeling to hear, know, and feel that you are loved!!
You are the best, Rev. Dr. PB!
Peace and Blessings!
