Anyway, some of the highlights are:
- We met another family that goes to our parish and learned about their lives, marriage and children.
- We played the "Nearly Wed" game and every couple did quite well making the 8 couples' engagements look sound.
- The winners (not us) were rewarded with a cake-cutting ceremony and pictures of the event. It was quite cute.
- The topic asked us to discuss how we see our lives changing and what we will expect from each other on a daily basis from who does what to help out around the house to how we'd like to see holidays planned.
It is surprising to realize that we are halfway through and only have three more sessions left. We still have to take the FOCCUS test but I'm not really worried about running out of time. So, I'll update on what goes on this evening for #5.
O, Most gracious heavenly Father, thank You, for being present in our lives in every way possible. Thank You, for the restlessness that reminds us to desire to be with You at all times. Thank You, for St. Louis and the wonderful family of friends we have there. Thank You, for Father Larry, Father Oliver and Father Paul. Please, bless them and keep them close to You. In Your name, we pray. Amen.
