Well, today…my husband and I celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary!!! As most of you know, anniversaries come around very quickly…especially the longer you are married!!! My husband and I were talking today about how amazing it is that it has been 19 years even though it feels much less. I guess that it is good that it doesn’t seem longer…that would mean that marriage would be a a chore and a burden to us….not the every day blessings that it has been. Don’t get me wrong….a marriage is work. Not every day seems like a blessing, but with prayer and guidance from God and a true love….it can be:)
I am thankful tonight for the song that led me to that music and video store the night that I met my husband!!!! (“When She Danced”) I was on my way to church that night, but I had seen a movie that previous weekend that had a song that I fell in love with and needed to have. Needless to say, it was more than the song that I had fallen in love with…..it was the man that I met along the way. It is funny how God works in our lives without us knowing it!!! Not too many weeks before this occasion, I had given up on dating and was through with boys for a while. So I thought!!! I had prayed that the Lord guide my steps in school, in life and in love!! Boy, did He! I met the love of my life shortly after that prayer.
Through marriage, I have learned that love is unconditional… can get you through the toughest of times if you travel the path together with guidance from God…..needed in my life…..in my children’s eyes when they look at me….. grows with each passing day to a stronger and more desirable love! I am blessed to have a husband that shows me love daily through his actions, his words and his heart! I love you Ralph!! Happy Anniversary!
