I want to deeply apologize for not keeping this up to date. I've been quite busy since my last post and a lot has changed. Blessed by the Lord, I gained a wonderful wife on May 10th. We celebrated by taking a cruise through the Eastern Caribbean and just really enjoyed being in God's presence and planning for what was ahead.
Many people asked me if I felt different after we were married on that day and if I were to answer honestly, I'd have to say not until we got home did it feel different. By no means was it a bad different, but this person was now even more so a significant part of my life. I made a commitment on May 10th to love her for as long as either of us will be around and I don't want to take that lightly. I want to continue to learn to love her and learn to cherish her. I read once in a book that marriage is the best way to become more like Christ. I mean, think about it.. You have to love someone even when they make your blood boil! Yeah sure, friends are that way, but usally, you get to go home after they've made you angry. You have to learn that they don't always do things the way you do them. That one in particular has proven to a diffiult one for me. I'm so happy that Lenzil and I took marriage counseling early on during our engangement, it has given us a confidence in Christ through the beginning of the marriage I don't think we would otherwise have.
Upon our return we quickly settled into a normal routine of going to church on Sunday's, doing a couples devotional and setting aside time daily to talk with one another. e also recently joined a Small Group in our church. This was a first for the both of us, so it's been an exciting start to a new journey. The people have proven to be a breathe of fresh air for me; I've longed for a connection with other Christians for a while now, so it's nice to finally have that. I have so much more to say and talk about, but I will leave that for the next time.
