On 5th January, 1973 two starry eyed, barely 20 year olds, stood at an altar, before a God they barely knew, and promised to love each other forever. We were overflowing with the feelings of love and really had no idea how important deciding to love, deciding to be loving, would become if we were to fulfil those vows we spoke. However 46 years later we are still together and happy – most of the time.
In the midst of running around buying the gifts and planning a Pinterest perfect family Christmas lunch, it’s good to stop and allow ourselves time to reflect, to get lost in the mystery of what Christmas means.
I think we can all agree that no one wants to live a life feeling desperately alone. And we certainly know most people don’t want to die alone. We are designed to be in companionship with each other. It’s how we work best.
