We’ve been married for over two years now! We’ve taken the weekend to slip away, listen to the Messiah and visit the lions. 😀 Also to use a dining gift card that our church family so kindly gave us.
Marnell and I each posed with a lion below and it was kind of cold. We didn’t feel like flagging down a passerby to take one of both of us.
“We should try to get a photo together so we look at least mildly interested in each other,” I told Marnell later.
“How am I supposed to get to feeling like that?” Marnell asked, then shook with internal laughter when he saw that I was glaring at him. Then, “What I meant was, how am I supposed to scale back my feelings to being only mildly interested in you?”
Oh yes, really!
Despite being teased half to death, I am really glad I married Marnell two years ago. I love adventures with him, whether inside the house or out. I love his honest feedback on my weaknesses. I admire his hard work and innovative mind and caring heart. I admire his courage and creativity and compassion when dealing with troubled boys. I’m so glad he loves the Lord.
And occasionally, I even find myself laughing at one of his jokes. 😀
P. S. Did you know my pet lions are little versions of the real thing? Do you know where the real ones are? Take a guess! I’ll send a little snail mail from the city to the first person who comments on this blog with their location— not just which city, but where the lions are in that city.
