This weekend my wife and I had a chance to get away for our 22nd wedding anniversary. We had a great time, and I won't bore you with the details.  But one thing that stood out to us over the weekend was God's goodness and faithfulness.

Over dinner, we talked through the 22 years we have been together, the highs/the lows, the disappointments/ the triumphs, the lean years & years that were more prosperous, etc...

It was a rich time of remembering the journey, and it was clear to us how God had carried us through... had watched over us... had provided for us every step of the way. 

In any one moment, we may feel vulnerable, alone, afraid... but in a lifetime of relating with God, we can look back and can see God's hand in our lives and so add our testimony to those who have come before us.

Psalm 86:15 - "But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness."

Grace & Peace,
Brad Swope
