This last week April and I were able to get away for a few days and spend time strengthening our marriage. Throughout our 17 years of marriage these times have been critical in helping us grow closer to one another and closer to Christ. We had a special opportunity to go horseback riding on the beach! This has kind of been a lifelong dream. This photo is taken at Oceano State Beach, near San Luis Obispo.
Over the years I have found that a large part of trying to be a “good husband” involves ample time to talk to my sweetheart. I think that 80% of loving your wife as Jesus loves the church is done in conversation, and getting away from normal obligations and time tables can encourage conversation that is deep and free.
