Happy 28th Anniversary to My Husband






 




When we had our church wedding, we were actually already married. Due to a scheduling problem between family members who were shift workers, we could not have the wedding until February 9, 1980. But we were taking a trip together in November and wanted to be married when we went. So we were married in our pastor’s office on November 2, 1979, with my sister and brother-in-law as witnesses. So we joke that we actually have 2 anniversaries.

Gen 2:18-24……18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

Marriage is not an easy thing to do. Two people, who are use to living their lives their own way, must live together and work out their differences. But it is far more satisfying and rewarding than any other human relationship on earth.
 
Marriage is God’s picture of our relationship to Him. In Scripture, believers are pictured as the bride and Christ, the groom. He does not want us temporarily living together till we get tired of each other. He wants us to make a lifelong commitment to each other, just like we make a lifelong commitment to Him.
 
Because humans are not perfect, marriages are not perfect. And non-Christian marriages have everything working against them.
 
But marriage can be successful and rewarding when it is done God’s way. He is the one who designed it.
 
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
 
I recommend these articles for anyone considering marriage…now or sometime in the future. They should be required reading.

  1. :wave:Hi,  Happiest Day and everyday!  I hope everyone (you??) are okay.  I had to wear a boot like that for over 6 months when I had shattered my right leg.  Be sure to have her still place ice (if okay with doctor) and keep her foot up.  I had to sleep on my back during that time too.  Well got to go pickup Mary from work — works at Barnes & Noble now.  Had tests with heart doctor Wednesday–hope to hear everything is okay.  Please take care, in my prayers, Sharon  The “mini” is my gift for you and your hubbie.:)

  2. Thanks, ladies.
    Cathy, we don’t even do one anniversary present. Gifts and cards on things like today are really not important to me. Having him home, however, is nice. Last year he was gone on our anniversary.

  3. We are not to much on gift giving to each other either. We kind of figure if there is something we need, we get it no matter what the occassion and we have most everything we want.  Of course he did come home with me a new camera a couple of days ago that was nice. No occassion, just because it was a good deal.

  4. Oh, that was sweet. We don’t even do Christmas gifts to each other anymore. Not that I don’t like giving gifts, but it’s really easier for him. That way he doesn’t have to struggle to think of something to give me. I can always come up with something for him, but then I’ve always been the kind of person that listened all year long for somebody to say something they would like to have, and then find it. I’ve always done that with my family.
    If there’s something we want, we just go get it….if we have the money. All this gift giving runs into lots of money.

  5. :heartbeat:Happy Anniversary!!!!
    It certainly is a testament to be married as long as you guys these days… we’re right behind ya!
    Have a wonderful weekend… love those pics!
    Hugs!

  6. Happy anniversary. Hold on to your treasure!
    I am content being single, but I think this is what God has called me to do, so He fills my needs.
    But, I like to tell people to treasure each other. A great marriage is priceless.

  7. Wow
    This is a testimony of the grace of God!
    In a day and age of divorces, this is somehting good to hear about
    You give me hope…in the midst of so much worries and fear about the future
