At the end of church service yesterday, the pastor asked the congregation to have a seat. He explained that a very lovely couple had celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last week and that they wanted to renew their wedding vows, today, in front of family and church friends. Oh fun! I was excited.
The pianist began playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D and then the lovely couple began walking hand in hand down the aisle. As they approached the pastor, he had them join him at the pulpit. He gave a brief history of their lives for the past 40 years and then proceeded to have them repeat their wedding vows. I couldn’t help but smile because you could see the love and happiness this couple was experiencing. And at the end…..they kissed! So Sweet!
Sitting there, I already knew that Cliff would say something about it after church. So, I decided ahead of time what my response would be. I wanted to shock him, no wait…...I wanted to scare the bejeebies out of him. HaHa!
Sure enough, we were walking to the car and Cliff said, “I didn’t know I would be going to a wedding, today.” Without batting an eye, I said, “We are so doing that when we’ve been married 40 years”. And just as soon as I got the words out of my mouth....Cliff said, “Pffft”.
It didn’t even phase him. I can never get one up on him. LOL!!
