28 years - becoming

IMG_0730The most important thing in your life is not what you do. It is who you become. –Dallas Willard

Today we celebrate 28 years of marriage. This year on the calendar mirrors the year of our wedding—it was at the end of the first semester of our senior year in college on the Friday after final exams. We wanted to have the ceremony at a time when all of our college friends could attend, and many of them stuck around an extra day and celebrated with us. It was a fun time and stands as a treasured memory.

The past 28 years have been filled with thrills, laughter, challenges, learning, sorrow, growth and much joy. We have been richly blessed with two wonderful daughters and an amazing group of family and friends from around the world to walk alongside us on this journey of life.

I am grateful to God for all that Dina and I have done in life together, but more than that, I am thankful for what I am becoming in the process. Dina’s love and friendship are integral to who I am, and who I am becoming. She is a precious gift to me and I thank God for her.
