Together…

 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.
Matthew 19:6 (NKJV)





GO:
We’ve been together a long time.  Next month, my husband and I will celebrate 19 years of marriage.  We celebrated 13 years since the day we met the week after our wedding.  That’s my life, essentially, being together with my beloved.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What God has joined together, according to my father’s teaching (not just daddy, my father was a pastor, biblical scholar, and officiant at my wedding), man cannot separate.  When something has been ordained, you can’t really do your way out of it.  I love my husband.  He’s not perfect, and neither am I, but the notion of not being together with him is something, since our engagement, I’ve never considered. 

Similar to my bridal bouquet...
Marriage is more art than science.  In the United States, it is still the case that one in two marriages ends in divorce.  I do not consider myself lucky, but rather abundantly blessed.  Our marriage is one of my favorite blessings, because from it flows so many others….our children, our blended family, our lives together, the memories we’ve made.

STOP:

Final thought? A happy marriage…just another one of my reminders that God is good.

  1. 19 years that is fantastic! We are going on 7 years. I love to hear of successful marriages when it seems like everyone takes the easy way out these days.
