Tomorrow is our eighth anniversary!  I love Lollie.  She’s a wonderful wife and an amazing mother.  Being her husband has taught me a lot.  Lollie has really helped me to grow closer to God.  Yesterday was also a big milestone for me and her.  We ran our first marathon together.  Doing it as husband and wife was a total blast.  We really trained hard over the last few months and on Saturday we did it; we completed one of the toughest marathons in South Africa and although it was hard we really enjoyed it.  Today was a day of serious recuperation; after the service we crashed at home and watched the South African cricket team beat the Aussies.  At Kleipot we studied the amazing book of Hosea (more about that tomorrow)
