Scripture and a Snapshot

The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Psalm 126:3

My husband and I have been married over two decades, and we’ve been parents for most of those years. Our “date nights” were long ago replaced with family nights. When he asked what I wanted this year, I told him a date night would be nice. We celebrated our anniversary all day. My husband planned to take me out to eat. It turned into spending the whole day together. We did simple things. Being with each other was what made it special.

We started our morning with a drive through country roads to a farmer’s market that I had especially enjoyed visiting years ago. We listened to a mom and daughter who sold goat milk and they listened to a cute video of the two new kids on our farm, our first goats. Then they showed us pictures of their newest goats born that morning. We made faces at each other when a farming family from closer to home tried to convince us to purchase bags of chicken poop. Really! We have chickens. I’ve never seen that for sale, but their eggs for sale on the same table just added to the grossness.

Lunch was slowly eaten at one of my favorite cafes. We bought each other trees. Technically, his is a shrub. But it is a sweet smelling shrub he’s been wanting. He got me a pink buckwheat tree. Both of them already have pretty flowers blooming. When we got back home we walked around then sat on the front porch swing while discussing just where they should be planted. We bought a few vegetable plants, too, but where to plant the vegetables is tricky as we now let our chickens roam the yard during the day.

We have been planning our second daughter’s graduation and reminiscing as we see old pictures. I am incredibly thankful for all that God has done for us in our marriage and family through the years. We are glad!
