June 13, 1987, that’s our wedding day.
My wife and I have a monthly tradition to celebrate all “13th” of the month.
Like most couples we celebrate our anniversary each year.
Today we’re adding another tradition I hope happens again.
We’re now celebrating every 10,000 days too. =)
Today is our 10k-wedding-day anniversary!
When I was a kid I hated math homework, but, over the years I’ve learned that I love math. Now, my favorite part of following sports is the analytics. 1

On June 13th, 1987 I married the girl of my dreams.
My dreams have not always been my reality.
For instance, we didn’t always agree. In fact, she once called me “wishy-washy” because I didn’t 100% agree with her political statement. I responded with a self-defensive snarky-pout, “I’m just open-minded!” We didn’t always agree the, nor do we always agree now.
And yet, my wife Amy continues to be someone I admire. She hungers for God, and hungers and thirsts for righteousness. Amy does so with grace and humility, in fact, if she reads this post she’ll be annoyed that I bragged about her and she’ll hate that she might not live up to someone’s expectations.

On our 10th Anniversary we renewed our wedding vows.
In 1997 we renewed our wedding vows — not that we were a mess and needed a restart, but — because ten years into our marriage, we were adults, “grown ups”, who had a better idea what we were doing and we wanted to be positive role models.
During our wedding we repeated vows I don’t recall and hope that we kept. At our 10th we wrote these vows, planning the keep them. And, aside from moments of selfishness, my inclinations to be a workaholic, and an occasional crabby day, we’re still keeping them. These vows help us keep on track toward our goal of a lifelong happy marriage.

Love is invincible facing danger and death.
Passion laughs at the terrors of hell.
The fire of love stops at nothing—
it sweeps everything before it.
Flood waters can’t drown love,
torrents of rain can’t put it out. 1
My friends Ashley and Jesse are getting married today!
Their relationship is years in the making.
Their infatuation has faded, but they still look at each other so sweetly.
Their infatuation has faded, but they still want to make one another happy.
How can they build on that kind of love?
