There are a few things we LOVE to do together....
When I use the word love, I am thinking of the biblical term "storge", which is a unique word for love in Biblical greek. It's often used to speak to the kind of love family members have for one another....like between brothers and sisters.
There are a few things Heidi and I do together which make us feel storge.
One of those things is rock climbing. Somehow...it reminds us that we are brother and sister, in Christ. The experience of shared effort; shared struggle; complete trust in the other person; shared joy; shared failure; a short prayer at the base of every climb; a thankful blessing when our feet touch terra firma at the end of the day....these things, and more, remind us once again that underneath our marriage is a friendship....but underneath our friendship is the reality that we are first the kin of the King -- brother and sister in Christ.
A few days ago we were reminded of this again:
This is what we climbed:
And this is what the day ended with:
We are blessed
