3 hours into our midnight morning LRC time, this phrase that Liz reminded me of from our weekend conference with Ps. Marcus popped into my head. He talked about the choices we make, not just in our love relationships, but also in the context of a sustainable church, how sometimes, being able to carry out a vision continuously to the next generation and so forth requires a great deal of sacrifice on our part. I guess, only if we choose to stay together can we come to a point where we can look back with a deep sense of victory and say "hey, look what we survived and came through". falling in love is one thing. but to be able to fall in love and still be in love 50 years down the line brings it to a whole different level altogether. and that is what i long for.
