Our wedding cake decoration

This ornamental decoration sat atop our lovely wedding cake. 

Many waters cannot quench love
Song of Solomon 8:7

Today, my husband and I celebrate twenty-eight years of marriage.  Like others, we have had our share of difficulties.  However, God has kept us strong, and we still love each other very much.

The adoring look

The adoring look

The long-standing joke by my husband is when I am ever going to get that adoring look back.  He claims that since that moment, as seen above, I have never looked at him again in the same way.  I do still adore him.

Actually, adoration is the key to our success as a couple.  The more I adore Christ, the more I love and appreciate my husband.  The same holds true for him.  When we each individually center our lives on Christ, our marriage thrives.  Apart from the Lord, we could not possibly have weathered the storms life has brought. 

I would like to wish my husband a Happy Anniversary.   I pray that we have many more!

    Congrats Sue. I pray the Lord will bless you with another 28 years together. I bet if you were to take the same picture with the same pose today . . . we would still see the love and adoration in your face for your hubby. I agree the more you adore Jesus the more mercy and grace you will have for those days when such adoration is harder to have . . . ~ Blessings ~

      Thanks, Deborah Ann. My husband and I kid around about this photo. He says that when I try to get the look again, I look like I am sick or something and not madly in love. Of course, he just kids. I think he knows how much I still adore him!

    You, too! A July bride! Congratulations for your anniversary and the many more years of God blessing your marriage! Isn’t it something that when God is the third person in a union that He holds it together?! \o/
    Love in Jesus,

    How lovely! This reminds me of the quote: “A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man has to seek Him just to find her.” Wishing you many more wonderful years together in Him. Blessings, Sophie

    The enemy lies to so many, telling them persevering love is not possible… your God-given relationship totally censures his divisive tongue! Hallelujah! Congratulations, you two!
