41 years and counting.

On Easter Sunday, 9th April, as well as celebrating the Risen Christ, Jean and I celebrated 0ur 41st Wedding Anniversary. A lot has changed since that day 41 years ago, especially how we see Easter.

We got married on 9th April 1982 and it was Good Friday, and yes we got married in a church. Quite unbelievable when you think of how we see Good Friday now, and unbelievable that a minister should marry you on Good Friday without batting an eyelid. It is the day we remember when Jesus chose to die a brutal death on the cross, to pay for our sins, not His, He was sinless, and to make a way for us to be reconciled to our Heavenly Father, the God of love.

I can't remember why we decided on April for our wedding, and why a Friday, but I do remember that we didn't go for the 2nd April because my papa Boyd had died on that date, but we did go for the 9th April despite the fact that we commemorate the death of Jesus on that date. But there is one big difference, Jesus rose again!!! Alleluia!
