If I had to describe my marriage journey, I would say it would be a story about a diamond being lost in the mud. There were times along the way where we would get tired of searching, but deep down in our soul we keep holding on to the fact that something full of brilliance and beauty was awaiting us if we just held on and kept searching. And once that diamond was found, it took God clearing away the muck and mire in both of our lives before we could see the radiant glory of what marriage was suppose to be: A picture of Christ and His church. It took a lot of holding on and Letting go. Happy 23rd Anniversary to us……..
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, it is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things…….And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13: 4-7,13
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. Gen. 2:24
Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Psalm 127: 3-4
Glory to God for the good things He has done……….
