29 Years And Counting.......

29 years ago today, I married my high school sweetheart.

We were only 16 years old (no, that's not a typo!)....very young, but also very determined - with the Lord's help - to make a wonderful life together. And by His grace, we have.

Many of our former classmates can't believe we're still married. They never thought it would last. One of our family members even speculated that we would be divorced by our first anniversary.

Has it all been a bed of roses? Nope.

Have we hit some speed bumps along the way? Yep.

But the vows we took on our wedding day were - and still are - important to us : we made those vows in front of witnesses, but most importantly, we made a covenant with Almighty God to stay together 'til "death do us part". 

 Through all the tough times, our love has grown stronger and we are even more committed to each other now than ever before.  And there's no way we could have gotten through the tough times without the Lord's help.  Soli Deo Gloria!

My hubby is my lover, best friend, and confidante. We cry together..and laugh together..sorrow together..rejoice together.  I can't even imagine my life without him.

So I eagerly look forward to the next 29 years...and more after that, if the Lord tarries.

I can truly say, "I am my beloved's,
                          And my beloved is mine.."  Song of Solomon 6:3

Have a blessed day,
