After breakfast we went to church to listen to one of my new favorite preachers, Carey Hardy. Really great stuff. The rest of the day has been spent running errands, doing chores working, and catching a little of the British Open.
We are ending our anniversary with the kickoff to the young marrieds small group at our church. It's fun to think that SIX years ago, we were joining a small group as the newly married couple and now we are getting involved in a group where we have been married the longest.
I wasn't sure how I would feel about an anniversary without the fun that we normally have. However, it has been a wonderful day together, savoring the blessing of our marriage. I'm not saying it is the easiest or the most perfect marriage. I know we haven't figured it all out yet and I'm sure there will be challenges to come. It takes a lot of forgiveness and the desire in each of us to become more like Christ. Despite the hard times, I can't imagine life without my partner, my best friend, my godly leader, and the one I love.
Happy SIX to us.
