A year ago, yesterday, a couple in love pledged their troth to each other and entered their life together in holy matrimony. Yesterday, we celebrated that beautiful sunny spring day that became a part of our story.
We promised to love, honor, respect, cherish, and give each other our most tender care. We promised to encourage and inspire each other for the rest of our lives. We promised that our hearts would be each other’s shelters and that our arms would be each other’s homes. Yesterday we wept as we woke early and watched ourselves do exactly that with our Scottish Padre to guide us and bring us the blessing of God.
This weekend we traveled north with good friends for pizza and ice-cream, and we fellowshipped and enjoyed ourselves and broke bread with a couple who’ve been in love for many years. And many of you sent your happy wishes for our first anniversary and we thank you. To be on this journey through life and living with one who shares your heart is an amazing blessing and gift from God.
