Today is our Wedding Anniversary. Elyse and I have been husband and wife for 33 years. Elyse you are my JOY, and my Blessing from JESUS and now my very Best Friend. Our journey together through life on this planet has been both bitter and sweet.
Yet every morning when I wake and see you there I am humbled that GOD chose you for me, before the foundations of the earth where made. And that because we both know Jesus, our love and friendship will continue into Eternity….for you are truly my Eternal Love.
Wisdom comes from sharing the bitter, the sweet and the JOY of life. So for all those that are reading this I want to share the following from my heart to yours.
What is a Marriage?
It begins as a precious moment in time. Two single threads are Cross Stitched together to become one whose purpose is to Honor GOD and begin a family.Then as time goes by these two threads are woven together… into the tapestry of life… that represents their unfolding story together.
A new story, that begins on the first page… of the first chapter of their Book of Life as a husband and wife.
This new story will represent their Greatest Adventure of life here on Earth.
However life, to be enjoyed in its fullest sense… is made up three not two. The third Person is GOD. Each of us are ordinary people… in the hands of an Extraordinary GOD.
The God, who wants to be part of every detail of your life together as you both live out your lives before HIM.
God said in the Old Testament “I knew you before I planned creation”… and God said in the New Testament…”I chose you when I planned Creation”.
God knew both of you before the foundations of the world were made… and HE has a plan for each of your lives… as you build your future together here on Earth.His wish for both of you is to have lives filled with Peace, and Hope, and Faith, and Love.
These are the 4 pillars upon which you will build your home.
But the Greatest of these is LOVE. God has called you to love one another because…
True Love will never fail. For this to happen… God must have first place in your relationship. Then both of you will learn that LOVE conquers all …because you will learn to have a relationship based on Forgiveness.
May the Almighty God bless and keep you… as you walk hand in hand before HIM …as Best Friends… in this journey we call life. May God grant you both, His Peace, as He continues to Bless and protect you… under the shadow of His Mighty Wings.
May the Holy Spirit shed His light into your minds and heart’s…giving you an ever-growing knowledge of the True nature of God …as you spend time together with HIM in the Book He wrote about Himself and you.
Learn to pray always giving GOD thanks for your Blessings… and calling out to HIM in the Storms of life…should they appear.
And May the Son of God, Jesus, become so real to both of you …that you will hear the sound of HIS Voice …and you will feel the touch of HIS Hands as HE extends them out to each of you saying to you both…
COME… Follow ME all the way home to Heaven…where you will never be separated…but will live together for Eternity.
