This is How 21 Years of Marriage Looks

Our wedding invitation was an artist's sketch based on a picture of us on the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI.

I cannot believe it - The time really did fly by.  But, today I have been married for 21 years.  I'm not exactly sure where that 20-something young bride went.  When I look at the pictures, sometimes I'm not even sure that young lady and I have ever even met.

But, today I celebrate 21 years of marriage!

I love reading anniversary posts about people who married their best friend.  It sounds so very romantic and lovely to marry your very best friend.  But, I don't fully relate.  See, I fell head over heels into love from the start.  Sure, we are friends.  But, I see our relationship as more of two romantic people who share the same passion for Christ-like living and are reaching to attain the same goals while cheering each other on.  If that's a friendship, then I married my best friend.

I firmly believe that God introduced us.  We literally bumped into each other up at church.  We were both attending a Sunday night praise meeting, and we were walking around a petition, deep in prayer.  We bumped into each other.
