A popular love song played often on the radio during the year that my husband proposed. Maybe I’m Amazed, crafted by talented Paul McCartney reminds us that it’s amazing to find love and it’s amazing to need each other.
Tomorrow we reach our 46th year mark. We took some time to be alone before the amazing monsoons hit our state. Whereas summer weddings in the Midwest are popular with flowers in bloom everywhere in comfortable outdoor settings, summer anniversaries in the hot, humid months in Arizona call for creative planning. Some beautiful resorts lower their prices substantially!
We enjoyed a delicious late lunch at Harold’s Saloon in Cave Creek, AZ, country and western atmosphere, rustic and colorful. Look at this old pioneer scene on the property!
The gal who checked us in at the Carefree Resort and Conference Center felt accomplished at 28 years of marriage. She seemed amazed we're going on 46 years. She understood the effort relationships require to keep their sparkle. She upgraded our room and slipped in two complimentary passes for the lounge. She kicked in complimentary breakfasts in the fancy dining room too! I had to hold back my tears.
We learned early on in our marriage that our love, strong and determined, still was not enough. We realized we were too broken and needed the strongest love fix known to mankind. We needed a savior. We look to Jesus every day and now we’re singing Amazing Grace.
I can imagine a wedding or informal event in this area. The company I worked for held a Christmas party here one year!
Arizona sunsets take my breath away. This one felt like a kiss from God at the end of a perfect day relaxing in the beauty He created, refreshed from a swim in the pool and a delicious dinner. Feeling loved!
