Praise the Lord for the past 23 wonderful years with my husband, Bill! I feel so blessed to be serving alongside my very best friend.
As I reflect on these years of marriage I have many happy memories. Memories of when each of our children were born. Memories of our children growing up. There are also the sad memories like when we lost child number four in a miscarriage and when both our Moms passed away. There are memories of victory and trials. Times of great rejoicing in what God is doing, as well as times when we just hung onto the fact that we know God knows best and will work all things together for our good.
Through all these times, good and bad, there is one thing that has remained consistent. Are you expecting me to say our love for each other? Well, although we love each other very much, we are sinful humans who don't always love as we should. No, the one thing that is always consistent is GOD. He never changes. His love never fails. When times are good - He's there. When times are tough - He's there. He promises that He'll never leave us nor forsake us. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
If you want to look back one day on 23 wonderful years of marriage, then might I urge you not to make yourself and your husband the main focus in your marriage. Make it the LORD.
