I Love Us Doing Life With Him

As we celebrate 35 years I am reminded of our many memories - exciting, good, bad, sad and shocking. I am thankful our parents brought us up in church and showed us that God has to be the center of a marriage. Ecclesiastes 4: 12, "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."


Genesis 2:24, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” “One flesh” is a complete coming together of a man and a woman, not just physically and emotionally but also spiritually. We cannot love with God's love if we are not connected to Him so we can be joined spiritually to one another.

Mike and I talk, daily, about our spiritual victories and setbacks and what God is teaching us. This helps us grow closer to God and by being open we grow closer to one another, too. We always prayed before meals and in a class but not just the two of us. When we learned to hold hands and pray out loud God took our spiritual intimacy to another level.


There is a southern classic hymn called, "It Gets Sweeter As The Day Goes By". The lyrics are:

The more I trust Him, the more I love Him Nothing good for me He'll deny The longer I know Him, the better I can show Him I couldn't stop now if I tried

It gets sweeter as the days go by It gets sweeter as the moments fly His love is richer, deeper, fuller, sweeter Sweeter, sweeter, sweeter as the days go by"


This makes me think of God and my marriage. I thank God that because of our love for Him we can love each other more! I love us doing life with Him! We, both, want to live the abundant life that Jesus has for us! Happy anniversary, Mike! "Alway!"

"Treat your woman like you treat your smartphone: Touch her often, stare at her, and make her the most important thing in your life."
