This weekend is Jacqueline's and my Iron anniversary: we have been married 6 wonderful years. "Iron" doesn't have quite the same ring as some of the other anniversary names. It's not as romantic as gold, silver, ruby or diamond - though it is less expensive!
This year we are not giving each other presents of iron! We are going for a romantic weekend away in Stratford-upon-Avon. We are staying in a luxury hotel, going to a performance of As You Like It at the Royal ShakespShakespeareere Company, and having a meal out at our favorite restaurant. It's also two nights of freedom away from our little boy - we love him dearly, but will appreciate the break.
Here's a quote about Iron that seems appropriate:
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Pr 27:17)
All godly relationships do us good, and none so much as the relationship we have with our spouse. Who else knows us better or speaks into our lives on such a regular basis.
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the LORD. (Pr 18:22)
I praise God for all the favour, blessings and good things I have received from the Lord, through my marriage to Jacqueline these past six years.
