14 Years

Last Wednesday Martha and I reached our 14th wedding anniversary.  Today we celebrated by spending more of the day with our good friends Keith and Carrie Hanson and the Royals game.  The festivities really began with brunch as First Watch and, of course, Bubba's Benny.  You haven't lived until you've had Bubba's Benny for breakfast.  In short, Bubba's Benny is two buttermilk biscuits with a sunny side up egg and turkey sausage patties on top smothered by turkey sausage gravy.  (It is a little bit of heaven on a plate.)  It was Faith and Family Day at the "K" which meant that in addition to the game there would be a concert afterward.  As it turned there was much more than just a concert.  There was a "warm-up" concert by a local rap group that none of us really enjoyed followed by testimonies from three of the players from the day's game.  Throughout the event a clear gospel message was given.  They even gave everyone an NIV New Testament as they left.  This year's featured group was Crowder.  We mistakenly thought we were going to get to enjoy the David Crowder band.  As it turned out we weren't disappointed.  The concert was short which was good since the day was so hot and long.  In spite of the brevity of the concert they managed to pack in contemporary praise and worship, blue grass, and a little southern gospel.  Remarkably they combined a banjo, hammer dulcimer, violin, cello, double bass and other assorted instruments into one band and made them all sound great together.  I look forward to hearing more from this group.  We finished the day at Mi Ranchitos.  For some reason after an entire day in the sun we were all craving the espinaca sauce.  Thank you Martha for 14 years of wedded bliss.  I'm not sure how it's possible but I fall more in love with your every day.
