Today is my Anniversary! I’ve been married to the love of my life for 37 years. Wow, time flies when you’re having fun.
Greg and I married when he was 19 and I had just turned 18. We learned a great deal about each other that first year. Not all of it good!
However, we were taught that you tuff it out! We had made a promise not only to one another but to God.
“Will you have this woman/man to be your wedded wife/husband? Will you love and comfort her/him, honor and keep her/him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto her/him as long as you both shall live?”
That doesn’t mean we are to stay in an abusive situation but it doesn’t mean to run at the first sign of trouble either!
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” Ephesians 5:22
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it” Ephesians 5:25
As I think back over the years…there are times when I don’t know how Greg put up with me but I’m sure glad he did!
“And be kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32
Happy Anniversary My Love! ~Debra
“Love suffers long, and is kind; love does not envy; love does not promote itself, is not puffed up, does not behave badly, seeks not her own, is not easily 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. Love never fails” 1Corinthians 13:4-8
