September 23rd

Today is Larry and my 41st wedding anniversary.  Our granddaughter Baylie asked me how old I was.  So I told her I was 61 and she told me that I am really old!  I love that girl!!

There have been good days, really good days and some excellent days.  And then there have been some bad days, some really bad days and some that well, we really didn’t like.   But through it all, the LORD has made His presence known to us.

His faithfulness to us has allowed us to remain faithful to Him and each other.  The examples He shows us each and every day are our witness on how to live.  So, if any of you out there are struggling in your marriage, if you just look to the LORD and get into the Word, you will find the answers you need.  I found that the closer I stayed to the LORD, my faith and trust were rewarded.

I am so grateful that He chose us to live out what we have learned from Him.  I don’t relish the bad, hard days, but I know they have been for my good.  The most spiritual growth I get, is when I am in the midst of a trial and trust the LORD.

So today dear LORD, I thank you for Larry and his life and our marriage.  I thank you for 41 years of life together.  There isn’t a thing I would change as each and every event has drawn me closer to you and Larry.  Bless our days together for as long as you allow us to stay here on earth.  Amen.
