One more Congratulations

Brian and Joy on honeymoon My best man and ever “former roommate” got back to work today after a two-week honeymoon. I had the real privilege of serving as his best man, in fact. My arms and legs almost fell off standing up there waiting for the official hitching to take place, but it was all worth it.

Congratulations, Brian and Joy!

Joy, in four years you will pass me as Brian’s longest-term roommate. I know for a fact that you got the best-read student at Bob Jones Seminary. Now will you please take up some more of his time so someone else has a chance at that title?

    Mark, I’m looking forward to the day when I can say I’m the longest-term roommate Brian has had. He is amazingly well read and as you can imagine, we have wonderful edifying conversations at home. I love learning from him. As far as taking up more of his time, I think I do, but since we both enjoy reading, part of that time is taken up in reading together.:)Thanks for being in the wedding and for you and Laura singing!
