8 years ago I wrote in a journal about what we did on our 5th anniversary. (I have a few writings from 06 and 05 that I attempted to make devotional like)
So today to celebrate our marriage and to participate in Throwback Thursday I will post it (pretty much as is, but be advised: I have a note beside it that says rough draft and I did say attempted to make devotional like!)
On May 26, 2006 I went on my first true hike. My husband and I went to Middle Fork Lake in Red River, NM. I was very excited, but a little apprehensive, I was not sure what to expect. I don't think anyone could have prepared me. The area was beautiful, the sounds were calming, but the hike was exhausting. Every climb got more difficult and I grew more short of breath. The air thinned as the mountain tops grew closer. The ground was loose, flies buzzed around us...we were roughin it. Right before the last leg, I felt like I could not go anymore, David encouraged me and we moved on. I am glad I did not quit. The sight of the lake and landscape was worth it. God blessed my journey with the view of the lake. Our journey with Him is similar. The climb is difficulty, but God quenches us with Living Water.
Thank you David for encouraging me then and for encouraging me now on my journey. God blessed me on that hike and He has and will bless this journey. I know I will be glad I did not quit. Happy Anniversary!
