27 years... and the adventure has just begun

I was thinking this morning when we bother mentioned how our life together has been an adventure and it.made me smile. It made me think of the girls whenever they had an opportunity to discover something new even if it was something in Grandma's backyard how they called it going on an adventure or climbing on hay bales and exploring old barns or when Bug would go to that little hill of dirt covered with trees in the park and he was excited about his adventure in the woods.  I look at how simple those adventures were and compare that to some of ours, ya we have had a few "big" adventures, but seems like the little ones the simple ones are the ones that have brought the most joy. I guess to some finding something new in Grandma's backyard would seem boring and a waste of time, I think they have no sense of what true adventure is. They haven't figured out that sometimes the simple things are the ones that matter the most. I appreciate our little adventures, our times discovering new things about the world around us, each other, and our walk with Abba. I love that we can laugh at pretty much anything. I thank Doug Smith for helping to release laughter in me and for not letting it get bottled up again. In Proverbs 18:22 it says: "The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the LORD." I say when that treasure is also a partner in an adventurous life he has received double favor and blessings.
I really believe that our adventures have just begun and that Abba has some things ahead of us that are new and exciting.... Here's to the future
I love you!
