take a step
one at a time
as your fingers
lace through mine
you go first
I’m right behind
I lead the line
give and take
we step together
closer than ever
My hubby and I often talk about life and how blessed we have been.
“If you could see what your life would be like now when we were first married, would you even believe it?!”
“We are so blessed.”
That about sums up our conversations lately.
This past Monday we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our first date. In some ways, that date is more special to me than when we actually said “I do.” I remember everything about that evening. He wore a bugs bunny baseball t-shirt and khakis. I wore checked shorts and a t-shirt. We went to the movies, and then we got ice cream and sat in McDonalds and talked for several hours- about life, our future kids… what we wanted to be when we “grew up”…
I was barely 17 years old, but by the time he dropped me off at my house that night, I knew he was the one!
And he still is.
So I met him at his office at the end of the day the past Monday, and we walked to a local restaurant. We ate a fabulous meal, and then drove around and watched the sunset and took in the beautiful mountain views.
And we talked and dreamed of our future…
However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”—
the things God has prepared for those who love him— 1 Corinthians 2:9
