Cookies and Juice

We agreed to conduct one of our marriage seminars this past weekend, even though it was our anniversary. It was the only weekend the church had available. We stayed in the home of the associate pastor and his family and did our presentations. After the first night, we returned to our room to find a special treat in our room – and one of the pastor’s little boys anxiously awaiting to see if we liked it or not.

It was a simple homemade card that said happy anniversary and a plate of lemon cookies along with two glasses of delicious apple juice. Did I mention that lemon cookies are one of my all time favorites? After the seminar, we pass out evaluations for couples to write down what they learned and how much they enjoyed the presentations. One couple wrote down that they have hope and see a light at the end of the tunnel.

It wasn’t our first choice to do a seminar on our anniversary weekend, but a plate of lemon cookies and a child’s happy face as well as a couple’s renewed hope in their marriage certainly make it worth it!!

Flag Day

Tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day. I really didn’t pay too much attention to this date, shame on me, until I decided to use that date 22 years ago to get married. Now I can’t forget Flag Day.

So along with proudly displaying flags in our yard, we also celebrate this amazing journey called marriage that God has blessed us with. There have been days that the Marriage Flag looked as if it would be blown right off of the pole, because of wind storms that had come, but it still flies. Some days there wasn’t even a little breeze, so you couldn’t see the full display of the flag, but you saw enough to know it was there. But most days, the flag flies proudly to say, marriage rocks!

Thanks Karl for 22 awesome years and looking forward to so many more of proudly waving the banner for an Unashamed Marriage.
