Rev. David Wilson and Mrs. Angela Wilson will be our conversation starters.
I have adopted the salutation “Keep Going!” instead of “Congratulations” when acknowledging someone’s wedding anniversary on social media. The temptation to give up or to slack off in our marriages, with difficult or even normal parenting, in our Christian pursuit of holiness, in mending broken relationships both in and outside of our families is always whispering, maybe even screaming in our ears-GIVE UP!!” These few days surrounded by beauty, good food, and good company will be punctuated with encouragement from the scriptures to keep going, time for lament without judgment, and rest for the weary.
