As Karen and I celebrate our fifth anniversary today, I have found myself looking back and remembering the days surrounding our wedding. The chaos of getting ready to move into a new home, the gathering of our family, laughter, a surprise dance at the reception, tears and, most of all, our wedding. It was a celebration of our love, an anticipation of the way that love would grow, a public declaration of our covenant, and a holy commitment to God and each other. Indeed, all that happened that day has grown since in life’s most difficult and joyous moments as I have experienced how love is divine gift, feeling, commitment, choice and action all working together. My prayer today is that our love will grow, overflow so we can share it with others, and always give honor and glory to the Author of Love.
