We finally caught up to Jack Bauer. Since Thanksgiving of last year we made time to watch 5 seasons of 24. For those who may be counting, that is 120+ episodes! Two weeks ago we finally caught up to season 6.
Today Patty and I celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. When we first married Patty worked as a Teacher’s Aid working with hearing impaired children at Monroe Elementary School in Oklahoma City. We learned the sign for "I love you" and to this day it is a sign that signals both our continued love for each other and a reminder of those early days together.
We’ve lived in Oklahoma City, Dallas (TX), Gould (OK), Milford (TX) and Tuttle (OK). God blessed us with a couple of great girls – both coming as "graduation presents" – Kimberly (OBU) and Tommie (SWBTS, first time). Three years ago we gained a son – Craig, Kimberly’s husband. We have spent more "24’s" together than Jack could possibly keep up with. Some of those days have been eventful. All of them fun when spending them with your best friend.
I recently read where pastors/clergy face the burden of being the
friend "to" all but rarely a friend "with" anyone. God’s gift is not
only a spouse but a best friend. We look forward to more time "with" in
the years ahead.
I love you Patty.
Looking forward to at least another "24."
