A Celebration . . . . . . and Give Away!
Today, my husband and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.
It all started 25 years ago when I walked into my kitchen and saw this guy in a black leather jacket talking with my brother. I walked on by into the living room and asked my sister Robin who he was. He happened to be a friend of my brother's - they car-pooled to work together.
A couple of weeks later he asked me out - and I was firmly warned by my brother to 'stay away'. Well, that date - we went to the movies (his mom had to drive us because his car broke down) - turned into five years of dating before we married on October 21, 1989. I was 20 and he was 24. I was a few sizes slimmer and he had a little more insulation on the top of his head.
We've been through a lot of tough times - financial issues, loss of jobs, health issues with both him and my daughter - but God has seen us through. We've decided to postpone a night out for dinner because we don't want to miss our Bible study class tonight. And if anyone had told us 20 years ago that we'd be going to church on our anniversary we wouldn't have believed it. We celebrate our marriage every day by communicating and working together - each of us giving 100% - and making sure that God is at the center of this marriage. We want to glorify Him in our love for each other.
That being said, I've been thinking of a Surprise Give Away, and our anniversary celebration is a great excuse for one. To enter, please leave a comment on this post between now and Friday the 23rd. I will choose the winner on Saturday. I'm keeping the goodies a secret until Saturday!
Have a blessed day!!
