The bible says,

Proverbs 18:22 (NKJV)

22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the Lord.

I most definitely concur! I’ve been married to the same woman for 30 years (as of this September)and I have no regrets. Have we had are difficult days? Yes, and some were VERY difficult. Hey, I’m just keeping it real, but as the old Gospel favorite, “I Won’t Complain” by Minister Paul Jones says, “Our my (our) days outweigh my (our) bad days!”


One of the things that keeps our love fresh and strong is that my wife knows how to have FUN! She LOOOOOVVVVESSS to laugh. She is a comedian’s dream. She always brightens the room with her vibrant laugh…and I love making her laugh. Works out perfectly doesn’t it?

We don’t let our difficult days make us forget the joy we have in one another.

I encourage you to always enjoy one another. As I often say, experience something new together, even if it’s something you both hate…I promise you will both get a good laugh out of talking about the things about it that you don’t like…that forces you to agree about something.

Do something fun together today. It’s our responsibility to let the world to see that Godly marriage is a good thing.

Even though my wife, Mechelle Johnson, (yep that’s a plug…Google her) is a GospelJazz artist, we both enjoy Old School R&B, Soul and Funk.

You minister to the soul with a Gospel song, but you minister to a marriage with a love song!

We brag about everything else don’t we. So, I CHALLENGE YOU to brag about your marriage!

Check out the video above if you haven’t already.  We’ve celebrating our anniversary all year long! In the video we’re getting a little help from an Old School jam by Bootsy Collins!



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
