Better with Time. . . .

Susie and I celebrated our 12th anniversary yesterday without our children, who are down in Escondido with their cousins and grandparents. What a glorious afternoon! We enjoyed a tasty lunch at Big Sky Cafe, a bit of meandering through downtown, a lazy nap in the sun, and a romantic movie to top it all off.

Reflecting on our 12 years, it's so encouraging to say things are getting better and better. Those early years were tough, to say the least. God has been good. His grace is sufficient. The Gospel transforms people and relationships. It is good to love and be loved over the long haul. Seeing the Lord's faithfulness over these seasons of life, gives me great hope to live by faith in the unfolding seasons up ahead. I give thanks for Susie. . . . she's just what I need!

Congratulations Tim and Susie. I'm glad you were able to celebrate as alone as possible for San Luis. Thank you both for your strong and thoughtful commitment to each other and to your children.
