Three years ago Andrew and I went away to Mexico, to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
Our marriage was, and is, strong. It has weathered so much transition and so much 'opposites attract' and differing points of view that we both hold (strong) to. It's a beautiful and powerful relationship.
At 15 years of marriage we felt God lead us to completely start again in a new country where we knew no one in this city we planted a church in. Our marriage came alive with Kingdom focus and purpose.
But then the grief set in for me. And stayed with me. And I carried it in my body. And I did not know what to do with it. My energy was so low. I was carrying unresolved anger. And I felt like it was being held up in my body and I didn't know why.
So by year 20 ... Mexico was needed. And so was some form of help to move our marriage from good to even better.
