Just a routine day

Today, May 24, 2010 is set to be mostly a routine day. Nothing really planned. Deb will be visiting and we will have a great visit - but nothing really super planned. I think today we will just all relax and chill out. Ahhhh, what a nice plan.

July 10, 1965 was NOT a relaxed quiet day! It was our wedding day! Mama was busy all morning long The ceremony was not until 2PM! I Went crazy, I was by myself until church time. I was probably 15 miles away from the church, by myself in the home that mama and I had already purchased.

Now it is 45 years later - as you have read our "life story" off and on through these several years of blogging, this year will go down as not so "routine". Even the question "is this the beginning of the end?" rolled through our minds - we are human. But today, things look good and we will be busy with planned activities - but probably relaxed.

Having a relaxed day sounds good - but be careful. Always stay alert to the Holy Spirit as He guides your life. Look for those "Divine Appointments" that may just be lurking. It may be a phone call, it may be someone stopping by, a stranger on the street or in a checkout lane. Will you be looking or just relaxing thinking "this is my day."? It is HIS day.

Having a friend like Deb to share the anniversary of your wedding makes the day super enough.

I am looking forward to many more anniversary post.
