Celebrating 18 Years of Marriage – Weekend Getaway Day 4

Sunday February 10, 2008 

Officially our anniversary date. 18 years ago this day I married the absolute love of my life! We had a great time while away. It was a good thing we got that massage the night before we left. We woke up to sub-zero wind-chills and winds gusting at 30-40 mph. It was down-right bitter to say the least. The drive home was treacherous. We had a rental car that the body shop had given us due to Shannon’s car being repaired (long story). It was a Ford Focus, which is small and as it turns out, not very good in high winds and slick conditions. I was WK (white-knuckling) all the way home. We made it safely, but I sure could ahve used another massage after that drive!

I enjoy taking Shannon to the yarn stores. I like plugging in the addresses into my GPS and just heading out. Plus, knowing that Shannon enjoys it so much adds a thrill for me too. God had certainly blessed us over the past 18 years. Our children are both saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, I have a great job, we have a great little home, we help pastor a world-class Apostolic church, and we have a great big wonderful God looking out for us ever step of the way.

I have been invited as the guest speaker at a marriage retreat in a couple of weeks. God has granted us widsom through-out not only our marriage but our ministry. I look forward to encouraging other couples to pursue a happy marriage. It’s one of the most rewarding investments a person will ever make; investing in a relationship of a husband and wife.
