It’s been 20 years today I married my man.
We’ve had crazy times, great wonderful happy times and times I don’t even want to think about ever again. Haven’t we all?
Aren’t all marriages sprinkled with times of happiness, sadness, despair and triumph? I’m not trying to say I’m some expert. I’m totally not. I’m not the image of your perfect woman or wife. I’m just a gal reflecting on these 20 years and admitting they haven’t all been wedded bliss, but they have all been worth the time it’s taken to get us where we are right at this moment.
This marriage was just ambling along, without much direction at times. We did this, did that…had some awesome kids. We made little decisions, big decisions. We did what people do.
Once we both decided GOD should be in the center of both of our lives AND that HE should be first in our marriage…that is when this marriage took major direction. It’s like when they say it was “that moment when all the planets aligned and all was right in the universe…” or something like that.. THAT is the moment that our life, our marriage, became what GOD wanted it to be.
Do we still fumble up, have to call for a re-do or just plain get on each other’s nerves? Well, yessmm, we do…
BUT we know God has got us and that is where we look.
Nothing else matters. No one else matters until you know God is #1.
Thank you Bobby Lee for helping me see that. Thank you for being patient with me. Thank you for being the awesome dad, person and husband you are. THANK YOU FOR 20!
