Happy pearl Wedding Anniversary my friend..

I too married my best friend….we don’t have God in the centre of our marriage - as the belief comes just from my side - but there is not a day that goes past without me thanking God for blessing me in our marriage and giving me my wonderful husband..and boy - how he has blessed us… we too have had our ups and downs - but I think the teachings of the bible on marriage, have gone a long way in strengthening and sorting out the bumps in our marriage.

In being the best wife I can, I am also being the best witness to him that I can (I hope this makes sense!)

30 years is awesome!!!! CONGRATULATIONS

Hi Barbara: Thanks so much for your kind wishes - and for reminding me it's our "pearl" anniversary. Hmmm - that give me an idea!
Anyway, even though your husband isn't a believer, I still think God IS in the centre of your marriage because YOU bring HIM there. Just by virtue of the fact that you witness to your husband every day attests to the Lord's presence. It was much the same in my parent's marriage - but that is a long story waiting to be toldl another day. And congratulations on your 21st!

Thirty years! Wow, that is something to be proud of. It's hard at time, but sticking it through shows that you love the other person enough to put away selfish desires to make a family.

That was great! I needed to hear from somebody who's HAPPY they got married. It gets so hard to just hear about the ones that fall apart.

May God bless your marriage for another 30 years. : )

HI Nettie: Thanks for visiting - I'm hoping it will be something to do with pearls (Barbara gave me that idea!).

You're very welcome, Barbara!

Darlene - We are proud of sticking together for this long - thanks! Making a family is the legacy we have given to our kids.

Hey Jules - I'm looking forward to the next 30, too. Yes, I get disheartened, too, with the divorce rate.

Hey Paula - Thanks for your comment! I just sent a private email to you. I wanted to let you know that the friend who said my husband and I belonged together eventually became my maid of honor at the wedding. She died in 1998 of cancer, and I still miss her so. She was the greatest friend, ever!
