In the past whenever I would hit "lull's" in my blogging material I would blame it on the fact that nothing exciting was going on in my life.
Well I think that was a big fat lie.
Because now something exciting is going on in my life and I still don't really have anything to blog about.
I mean, I think growing a human being is pretty exciting. However I don't think people want to hear about it every single day.
Plus life is pretty busy right now so that doesn't leave a lot of time for blogging.
Between catching up on my DVR, reading Harry Potter 4, reading Hunger Games, and also finding some time to eat us out of house and home I've got a pretty full plate. Both figuratively and literally.
Today while fast and furiously catching up on my DVR I was watched the past 2 episodes of Oprah.
Well today she had The Judd's on her show which totally reminded me of a story I've never told on my blog.
It involves the song "Love Can Build a Bridge", me, Luke, and a marriage conference.
A marriage conference before we were even married.
Before we were even engaged.
Many moons ago before Luke and I were dating or even engaged we were signed up to go to marriage conference.
Somehow participating in the marriage conference fell into Luke's category as a worship leader, even though he wasn't married. Minor detail.
Try doing that math.
I could spend hours explaining this marriage conference, that lasted an entire weekend mind you. Sometime if we ever meet in person ask me to tell you about our marriage conference experience BEFORE WE WERE MARRIED. It makes a fun in-person story.
I could tell you about how the whole weekend they would talk about our roles as husband and wife, and then pause and turn to me and Luke and say "or good friends" and then would resume their speech. The. Whole. Weekend.
But today I will only tell you about the part that involves the beautiful ballad by The Judd's. And how at the end of the weekend we had to form a circle with those who were participants with us and hold hands and sway together as we listened to this song. Then in the end we all had to partake in a giant group hug.
A note for the future, shall we meet. I'm not a fan of group hugs.
So now every time I hear that about love building a bridge I convulse for a about a minute with memories of people patting me on the back telling me that even if Luke and I don't get married we would always be great friends.
Well here we are many moons later, still great friends and low and behold we're actually married. And yet, that weekend still remains one of the most awkward moments of my life.
However I am grateful that we were sent to the marriage conference. It still, to this day provides many moments of comic relief in our marriage when we think back on stories from that weekend.
Plus when life gets hard we just remember Love can build a bridge.
You didn't see that one coming did you?
