Obviously, I remarked, she wasn't corrupted by going to dance festival ...
Though if they only knew, I got more than lucky. My wife is better than I knew could be possible. I remain grateful for the path that led me to her and for her marrying me.
Also ran across a blog post I really liked:
I wrote the word pericope on the board and explained that that meant a complete, coherent passage from the scriptures, one that ignored chapter and verse divisions if necessary in order to encompass a complete thought. (I sketched a bracket that framed the last part of one “chapter” and the first part of the following “chapter” on my diagram.)
Then I asked a brother to read the last three verses of John 13 and the first three verses of John 14 without pausing, as if he saw no chapter division.
Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.Absolute silence for a moment, then I asked, “Does that change your understanding
Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
I'm grateful to God for many things. It is good to remember them.
