This conference was everything I thought and needed it to be. The crescendo of the event was Tyjuan and I renewing our wedding vows. Almost 23 years ago we said them at our wedding ceremony in Orlando, Florida. But this past Saturday was different. We actually knew what we were saying. The day of your actual wedding was pure adrenaline. The dress, the cake, the guests, the minister, the flower, the party, the limo and all of it leaves you wanting more.
ALL that money, ALL that planning and within 4-5 hours it is OVER.

I wanted to share a highlight from the XO conference. It was livestream to over 450 host sites, both domestically and internationally. Many couples shared the date of 2.10.18 as their wedding renewal ceremony.
Marriage, really any relationship, is about being a servant to one another (thank you Jimmy Evans). The union of matrimony is a covenant between husband and wife. I learned that just as Jesus came to serve us, we must serve our spouse in many different ways to be successful. Maybe it's preparing his favorite dinner, partaking in his favorite hobby or just listening to what makes his heart tick. In the same way, he listens and seeks ways to create those special moments for me. Not because we want to or understand the reason for a request, but we serve each other because it's necessary for a happy marriage. There is no "I" spirit in marriage, but a "we" spirit.

How can you take the spirit of Valentine Day and carry it throughout the rest of the year? How can you create a special moment for someone who doesn't have spouse, but is in need of your companionship?
Our world is in desperate need of those willing to NOT just think of themselves. That's what a servant is. Renee and I wish you a loving, caring and safe Valentine Day. May God be present and more importantly, may you know that He is with you. You are His and He is yours. (Posted by Roslyn)
