Date Night 101: Questioning Aslan

“Go forth seeking adventure. Open your eyes, your ears, your mind, your heart, your spirit, and you’ll find adventure everywhere.”- Wilferd A Peterson

I love date night! Every week I can’t wait to spend time with Mark. It is such a great way to reconnect, talk, and simply enjoy being together. I love date night because marriage is worth fighting for. As we open our hearts to one another, we will find ourselves on a grand adventure. I am so thankful that the Lord created marriage because this is another way we can know Him better.

Date Night Idea #6: See A Play Together.

I raised both eyebrows when my dad told me that he was bringing in actors from England to put on a play about C.S. Lewis, because I love plays. I instantly knew this would be a fun date for Mark and I to go on. Mark normally plans our dates, but my husband being the generous, thoughtful man that he is agreed to take me when I suggested it. He knows that I revel in the scripts, the drama, and the acting. I can’t help but love the cheerful abandon of the actors. I love the enthusiasm, and the expressions.

As the night approached for the play my excitement grew. Here is Mark and I at the play.

Nigel Forde, an English playwright, wrote this script especially for my dad’s production. It was so neat.

Here is the fun set. The had a big picture of Aslan and a wardrobe that looked like it was straight off of the movie, Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I didn’t get to see my dad very long because he was hosting the play, but I grabbed him just long enough to snap a photo.
