Parting from the talk of spiritual discipline, I thought I’d talk about something that is much more pressing to me right now. What is more pressing than my own spiritual discipline? Well, my wedding, of course.
For the long-time readers of the blog, they may remember that for a time, I wrote a weekly column I called The Life of the Single Christian Male. It was centered around being a young man who was discovering the joys (and hardships) of being ok with being single.
Well, that ended a year ago last October(ish). I met a girl who was completely unlike me: mischievous, sly, super goal-oriented, and well-planned. And hot. Way hot. I fell in love. Now we’re getting married.
We’ve been talking a lot about the future (as we should), mostly career/vocation-wise (though twins runs a fair bit in both family streams it seems – yikes), and I’m pretty sure we’ve decided on the ‘taking turns’ style of life-sharing. In the coming two years, we finish our (her) schooling. After that, we’re going to do something cool, like work in an orphanage in Africa, if possible. Then, most likely, I’ll do a Master’s and get to work in a school somewhere so Christine can do what she wants, which at that point may be kids. Not sure yet. Luckily, we’re pretty fluid.
From time to time, I’ll be referring to the Lady Friend/Wife/Girl/Her Royal Hotness in reflective posts about life, and I’m debating maybe even starting the Life of the Married Christian Male, if she lets me talk about that kind of stuff. Point is, I felt that I should introduce this part of my life to the readers who don’t me personally.
This is Christine, and I love her.
