5 Years

Happy 5th Anniversary Osborns!

It is startling to wake up and realize that it has already been 5 years since your wedding day!  Is married life what you expected? Do you remember being single? Does it feel like 5 years? 5 years is the anniversary of wood – whatever that means…

So I will start a word play to honor the family sense of humor…

Would you promise to love each other better this year than you have the past year? Would you bravely ask each other what you need to do to make the other want to marry you all over again? Would you choose each other again? And, then would you be courageous enough to implement whatever it takes to do make it a reality? Would you have let go of some of the bickering and selfish things if you knew how much it meant to the other?

There is an Imagineering trick I learned from McNair Wilson years ago that I will share in honor of 5 years. The imagineers for Disney would routinely ask the question,  “what do we want this attraction to look like, smell like, sound like, taste like, feel like?” Then they would incorporate all five senses into everything. There are 5 senses  – see, hear, smell, taste and touch. But I might suggest 5 more:

  • Innocence
  • Nonsense
  • common sense
  • conscience
  • magnificence

And they make the most sense with the 6th sense, which is humor.

So, how can you imagineer your marriage relationship into an even more creative and beautiful reality in this, your 6th year?!

Wouldn’t you know it?! I love you both and I sense God is going great things in and through you together!
