Still the one.

Fifteen years ago, today - on a beautiful overlook in Mexico, surrounded by family and friends - Trey and I said, "I do."

Six children, four dogs, two cats, two snakes, five gerbils, three fish, one bearded dragon, two cities, three houses, hundreds of burnt suppers, and an unmistakable call to serve the poor together...



...he's still the one.

"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.  *Make each other laugh."

Romans 12:19-21, *plus my own addition

He sent me a picture of this car this morning...



I love him.  But, I'm hoping it's not my anniversary gift.
