This one year has been amazing and each day spent fruitfully with each other. We realised during our courtship that the Lord giveth and taketh, and our time on earth is short. So, instead of getting upset over small and big stuff (or petty stuff) alike, why not trash things out quickly and make peace so that we could live each day lovingly?
And we did just that. God has been truly gracious and wonderful in providing us with each other and we couldn’t be more thankful.
And today, since it was our anniversary, we decided to go out! (huh…?) Err…we are truly home people and even though we intended to go Quincy Market near the harbour for a good meal but in the end, just settled for a normal one. Lobsters seemed expensive and we thought we could go for it again next time. Erm, yes, we are just really practical people and of course, even though we grew up in the city, we got bored with walking around the shops and spent more time in Borders instead =p Next time, we should really go hiking!
And today, it was pretty exciting in Church. There is something unique about Park Street Church. The church is very welcoming and wanted every one to be part of the family and one way of doing that is to connect and SERVE. So, today, there were booths set up and we went shopping for the ministries that we wanted to grow and serve in. There were just so many avenues! Both of us (more of I) were interested in the honeymooners classes for couples in their first few years of marriage where we could learn principles for developing a marriage that will last a lifetime. It would be fun learning from other newlyweds too!
Oh! There were also others that we were interested in but we would update again. And, we bumped into my ex-churchmate who is studying in MIT now for her PhD. I know she’s in Boston and I’m supposed to catch up with her but little did we know that she is also worshipping at the same church. Whoah!!!
God is good, all the time!
