I Didn't Forget My Anniversary - Finally
I put it in my Apple Calendar and had it remind me.
I put it on my iPhone and had it remind me.
I put it on my todo list and had it remind me.
I asked my daughter to remind me.
I just finished a series of messages on marriage and family so I entitled last Sunday's message, "It will be 34 years this week."
I REMEMBERED!!!!! (My wife is laughing right now.)
All week I have been blogging about blindness. Today is no different.
Love is blind.
Actually, the way that the bible puts it is, 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
Love doesn't ignore the obvious, it just chooses not to judge you for it.
How in the world did I catch that green-eyed beauty so many years ago still amazes me? What did she see in me? She saw love and love saw something even I couldn't wrap my head around.
So my wife, for the last couple of years, is famous for saying that I married her twice. On our 30th anniversary, I surprised her one Sunday morning by renewing our vows. I got down on one knee and asked her if she would marry me again. Her answer? "Can I think about it?"
That's my wife, and I love her.
PRAY Dear Jesus, may I love others beyond their faults. AMEN
