To Have And To Hold—Living Out Our Marriage Vows

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary. When we stood before the courthouse judge 42 years ago neither of us had any idea if we’d still be walking hand in hand 40+ years later. Actually we never really thought about it one way or the other. We’ve had our trials and tests over the years and I’ve shared about that extensively in this forum but today I’m celebrating…just celebrating.

I’m celebrating that we have Christ as the Center of our marriage. I’m celebrating that we have other’s back. I’m celebrating that we have a special bond that only we share. I’m celebrating that we have a tried, tested and true testimony of the goodness of God. I’m celebrating that we have a legacy to leave our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. I’m celebrating that we have cheered one another on to love and good works. I’m celebrating that we have one another till death do us part.

I’m celebrating that we can hold each other accountable to keep God first. I’m celebrating that we can hold each other’s confidences and the deepest desires of each other hearts like a priceless treasure. I’m celebrating that we can hold each other in joy and in sorrow. I’m celebrating that I can hold his hand and he can hold mine. I’m celebrating that together we can put our hands in God’s hand and follow where He leads. I’m celebrating today. Simply celebrating.

Happy 42nd Anniversary to us. Glory to God.
