It Will Never be Boring


There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage. ~Martin Luther

Years ago, I was at a point in my life that I did not trust my judgment so I surrendered it to my Lord. I asked the Lord to provide the one He wanted me to marry.

Immediately, I met someone--someone, whom I would not have chosen for myself. We were supposed to go on double date with a mutual friend, but it never happened. The friend did give my phone number so that is how I first met my husband. He had a very nice voice and we talked a long time. We talked a few times before we actually met in person. I think we actually fell in love over the phone before we knew what each other looked like. Less than a year later, we married.

It was challenging to stay together the first years. There were times I was just barely holding on with my fingernails and I am sure he had feelings I would rather not know also. Through the years he would always remind me that he first promised our marriage would never be boring and it hasn't been.

Today is our 22nd Anniversary!

~ My Lord, thank you for knowing what I needed better than I did and providing it to me through my husband. ~
