One of the real joys of moving back to Texas has been the support/help of my parents in watching our kids. I can't really express what this has meant to Laura and I, but suffice it to say that we're thankful for that special time to spend with just each other and grow our marriage more sweetly and beautifully. Don't get me wrong, we love our kids and honestly there is perhaps no greater earthly calling than to raise and shepherd children into lovers of Jesus Christ. But... I think it's so important for us to remember that we raise children to leave us and have their own families, but God has provided marriage as a close and intimate relationship beyond children.
And so we hope to take more walks like this and have conversations you just can't have when kids are around.
