25 Year

After Kal's post what can I say!! I don't know how she has put up with me for so long!.
She has summend upo how important both marriage and family is to the both of us, through the good times and the not so good. God has always been with us, for which we are eternally grateful.

For me one of the highlights of the day was renewing our vows with Sarah and Peter (and Hannah) there. Having them pray for us was really special, and thanks to Ron for doing the official bit, but much more than that, how special he made us feel.

I pray that our children will also find happiness in marriage. I remember Ron's word to us today "Bedrock", and pray that God will also be a bedrock to them.

God is Good

I know it is some time since my last post, but what with Dad's funeral and thanksgiving service (which went really well) and New Wine, I haven't had much time.

New Wine was was up and down because if mum not being well. I was going to blog about stuff from New Wine, but I have decided not to. Instead I want to say what a great God we have. Having just had a BBQ for our 25th Wedding Anniversary (and also Kal's parent's 50th) I realise how blessed I am that God gave me Karen. I know I've always known it, but when you celebrate 25 years it really brings it home.

I know it is actual 10 days to go to that actual day, but we celebrated today to co-incide with Kal's parents. Also a couple of days after ours we are off to Mauritius for 10 days of luxury, we just can't wait :-)

It was really good today having some of our friends around (sorry to those we didn't invite, we only had so much space in the back garden!) and chat to extended family. It make me realise how good God is to us, and how important family and marriage is.
