We’re celebrating my husband’s birthday this weekend! His name is Ed and he’s turning fifty-six. He is a very special fellow and I’d like to honor him today.
But, my Ed was the best out there in his time, and the go-to man for all things books and reading. He had a passion for reading and literacy believing that if children were readers they would be able to read the Bible. Read so God’s Word might be opened to you! Parents regularly sought him out to help engage their children as readers at the bookstore. In fact, that’s where I first met him, some thirty plus years ago – spending my baby-sitting money on books in the store where he worked. His creative management of the store made it a hub of happening literacy and literary events, and friendly conversation. Everybody knew Ed – “the bookstore guy”.
Currently, we celebrate eight joyful years together, serving the Lord with gladness and creativity. Ed and I pool together our storytelling talents on occasion and perform together in his Wild West Clementine Jones shows – I’m his wife – Wanda Word-Wise Jones. He digs for the gold – I wear “pearls of wisdom.” God is sooo good!
I am sharing this testimony tribute in honor of my husband’s birthday this weekend with Charlotte and Ginger at Spiritual Sundays.
