25th Anniversary!

17 Jun

Cathi and I were able to get away for a couple of days to the Pacific beach and just returned today. It was a very relaxing time and we both appreciated the opportunity to be together alone for a short time. That doesn’t happen very often in the normal course of life. We are amazed it has actually been 25 years and laugh at all that we have done together since that time. We were just 22 years old then (actually, Cathi turned 22 two weeks after our wedding) and we realize that in many ways we grew into adulthood together. Since then we have traveled around the world (on a budget), lived in a number of strange places, enjoyed our four children in all their stages of life, provided a temporary home for thirty foster kids, lived on very low income and pretty healthy income (and now back again) and know that God has blessed us far beyond what we deserve.

So now we can finally acknowlege we’re middle aged. The extra pounds better come off soon or they never will. The fire of youth remains, but hopefully the wisdom gained over the years directs it a little more effectively. We can’t imagine what God will show us over the next twenty-five years, but now we know that our plans and imagination won’t come close to what He has in store. Pura Vida!
