Larry's gift



So the other day I shared what Larry got me for our 20th anniversary - a platinum/diamond anniversary ring. And I said he was getting golf stuff from me.


Well for Father's Day the kids and I got him golf shoes. He loved them! And for our anniversary this year, I got him... (drumroll please...)

A set of Callaway golf clubs!

He's in heaven! And that's how every husband like him SHOULD be, right?

After all we've been through together and made it through the past 20 years, I wish I could give him so much more. I have the next 20 years to save up for the next thing. Actually the next five, because I want to do something special at 25. And really, we should celebrate every anniversary in a big way because it's such a significant thing.

Recently I was reading the blog of a pastor who has been married for many years and they had a special anniversary this year and said they didn't even get to celebrate it until weeks later, nor did they even exchange gifts until weeks had past because they were too busy ministering to other people. I was really sad to hear that. And may we never, never, never fall into that. While I love the ministry the fact of the matter is, a lot of people I've ministered to have come and gone. And nobody has ever been to me what this man has. So on our anniversary? I'm all his.
