Last night we jointly celebrated Judy’s birthday and our anniversary. We laughed, reminisced, commiserated, planned, and laughed some more.
At times it seems if Bob and I have been together all of our lives. Other times, it seems as if we are just beginning. I still learn new things about my hubby—things that I never knew before. How could it possibly be our thirteenth anniversary?
We are content this year to celebrate quietly. Just mentioning that we would do all of this again and again is enough.
Bob's gifted me with a sweet silver bracelot. My gift to him? An outside project—cleaning the deck chairs—that means more to him than a real gift.
A happy marriage has much to do with keeping priorities straight. We need to love God and let the rest fall into place always mindful that God walks with us.
Not that we have attained this. At this moment, we are journeying together with a sense of peace, contentment, joy and thankfulness.
The fear of the LORD leads to life:
Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Proverbs 19:23 (NIV)
