Happy Anniversary

On May 8th, 1996, while dancing at a club on ladies night with friends during finals week of my sophomore year at university, there was a very handsome man who came bobbing up and down behind me to dance.  As I turned around I saw David.  That night is planted in my memory – what we talked about, what I was wearing, giving him my phone number, the excitements and worries if he would call me, etc…  On May 10th, 1996, we had our first date at the movie theater to see the movie Twister.

We didn’t know at that first date that three years later on May 21, 1999, we would become one as Mr. & Mrs. David Anderson.

We could have never imagined on that wedding day that our ten year anniversary would be spent packing to leave our life as we knew it in the USA to live and serve overseas.

JoshuaJonahI married my best friend 16 years ago and he’s still my best friend today.  Happy 16th Anniversary!  As David likes to say, I’m still falling for him.  (yes, I did fall on my wedding day)

    While I remember the fall, more importantly I see your love for each other and your love for Jesus and I am so happy. 16 years is just the beginning. May you celebrate many more.

    still don’t have an answer to why David is running away rather than catching his bride’s fall? 😉
