The Pastor and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary this week. I'm amazed at how fast it went and also how it seems like just yesterday we were saying our "I do's". The funny thing is that I don't really remember my "I do's". When I'm stressed and the pressure is really on, I don't remember the details of things very well.
On our wedding day we had around 300 people there. I was 18 years old, and being a little controversial to some, was marrying a 35 year old man, who had formerly been my youth pastor. Family had traveled far to attend, differences between the groom and some of his new in-laws were making themselves known. Let's just say the heat in the kitchen was high and I don't remember any of it!
Every now and then, we watch our wedding video and The Pastor tells me the story of our ceremony. It sounds like it was lovely.
After 20 years, it's still a good thing I have him!
