Happy Sixth Anniversary To Us
July 28th marked our sixth anniversary. Due to Philip leaving for the Philippines yesterday I wasn't able to get this posted in time.
We have a good laugh about the 28th of July because there is always something going on which means that we can't celebrate on the actual day. Our first anniversary we spent in separate cars in the trip that moved us from SC to OH. The second one I was pregnant and so miserable but we were together. The third, Philip was in the Philippines teaching and I stayed in KY with little Allan. The fourth, Philip was in Detroit at a Bible Faulty Leadership Conference. The fifth, we buried my grandma Slagenweit and right after the funeral meal I took Philip to catch a ride back to OH so that he could preach at Mode Camp. This year Philip is in the Philippines again.
We both have agreed that celebrating our marriage commitment can't be confined to one day. I'm thankful for a husband who tells me on a regular basis that he's glad he's married to me. I laugh every time he tells me because it still amazes me. I have a hard time living with me! But he says he's glad to be "stuck" (my terminology) with me for the rest of our lives. And anyone who knows him doesn't question his intelligence. That can make a girl feel really good.
And so another year has gone by. As we live life together our love and appreciation for each other grows. Our thankfulness and trust for God's wisdom also grows as we see how fitted we are for each other. This whole thing was God's ideas anyhow (a rather long story for another time and another place) I'm glad we're a team! I LOVE YOU PHILIP BROWN!
