Today is the feast day of Saints Joachim and Anne, the parents of Mary, and it is also our 5 year wedding anniversary! I have been very sentimental this morning as I reflect on 5 wonderful, busy years with ET and our children, Christopher (our honeymoon baby - you do the math :) ), ^Lucy^ (born and died on 8/17/06), and Maria (10/30/07). 

I have always loved having our wedding anniversary on the feast day of Joachim and Anne. St. Anne is the patron saint of mothers in childbirth and all Christian mothers, and St. Joachim is the patron saint of fathers - how blessed we are to share this day with them! 

Lord, God of our fathers, through Saints Joachim and Anne You gave us the Mother of Your Incarnate Son. May their prayers help us to attain the salvation You promised to Your people. Amen.
