Today is Gil’s birthday. He worked a full day and we headed out to church as soon as I got home. We had our growth group orientation tonight for the upcoming semester. As I listened to the pastors talking about our responsibilities for our leadership role, I sat thinking how lucky I am. Gil and I had just moments earlier been talking about the change in our relationship since we discovered Relevant. It’s not that it was bad before we started on this journey but what was good before has become something beyond my wildest imagination since. I am so blessed to be able to grow in my relationship with my husband and best friend while discovering this new relationship with God. And the best part is that we are sharing this with each other, every step of the way.
I know it wasn’t the biggest of celebrations for his birthday, but at least we got to share the evening with each other and with some of our church family. I know how much he would have loved to have been with his kids today, but hopefully they can make up for it tomorrow.
Gil, I love you. My life is so complete because of you.
