Four years ago, I was finishing up our wedding reception, saying goodbye to people, and preparing to drive away to start my honeymoon with my wife. Now, four years later, it seems like the time has flown by! It is such an awesome thing to live life and partner in ministry alongside your best friend!
In a couple days, we are going on a marriage retreat designed for youth ministers and their spouses. This is not a responsive type of retreat for us, but instead, it is a preventative trip. Yvette and I have an amazing marriage, but we know we are not perfect. Thus, we are excited about this retreat, because we strongly believe in working on your marriage. In our observation, we see that many marriages fail due to the lack of effort from the couple. It will be our first marriage retreat, so I am not sure what to expect in terms of details, but I do know that it will help us to grow closer and prepare for this lifetime together.
Happy anniversary to my amazing wife, Yvette! Honestly, the only sad thing is that these past four years have flown by so fast. The good thing is that I still have a lifetime with you!! I love you! Thanks for making my life even better than I imagined it could be.
