Congratulations to Andy

life / marriage

So. Andy is one of my best friends. He just got married yesterday, and I wanted to say major congratulations to him and Andrea.

The new bride and groom are both authentic people, and at the same time they are authentically in love with each other and their God. For me, this is a great compliment, and it is one that I bestow rarely. Many couples have none of those qualities, and many only have one or two.

Kiera and I have been able to watch their relationship for a couple of years, and have been honored to be able to offer occasional encouragement and advice. We’ve learned a lot about marriage, about ourselves and each other and our God, in the last few years, and find it to be a blessing to share our various experiences, and what we’ve learned through them, with other couples.

But for now, we hope they enjoy our gift.
