Ten Years of Cake

Yesterday, October 12th was my 10th anniversary with my sweet husband.  I intended to do a long sappy post, but instead of wiling away more time at the computer, I went on a date with my best friend. :)

Our marriage has really been a piece of cake.

You prepare expectantly, full of hope.

Changes and unexpected surprises come your way.

Life gets messy.  You try to laugh.

You get ALL messy together, forgive, and love each other.

Okay, so that’s a bit simplistic, but it is true.  Our marriage has been a piece of cake, full of surprises, mess, fun, thankfulness, and laughter.  Here’s hoping for 50 more years of cake together.

Our wedding message was taken from Colossians 3: 12-17, and I still think about these items every day when I get dressed.

Colossians 3:12-17   12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

What Scripture did you use in your wedding? OR, if you’re not married, which one do you hope to use some day?

    Happy Anniversary! We had the classic Genesis 2:21-24. And Shakespeare: “Let us not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments; Love is not love That alters when it alteration finds Or bends with the remover to remove.” So there you go. Foreshadowing? :)

      I think we had a Shakepeare sonnet too. And I also wrote him a sonnet in iambic pentameter that was on the front of our program. What a goob I was!! As awesome as this guy is, he wouldn’t know iambic pentameter if it hit him in the eye. :)

    I had that passage from Ruth. It’s important to cling to those Scriptures through the good and bad, and I’m so glad you still do that. You were a beautiful bride. Congrats to you both. <3

    Well, I don’t have a particular passage in mind – it seems pointless to plan it yet. At age 60, all I know is if I ever do get married, the Bible passage will have to be in BIG PRINT. 😉

    Congratulations! My husband and I will celebrate 9 years this December. We used the Exact Same verses from Colossians!!! I have them circled and highlighted in my Bible. We chose them ourselves. We thought is was so descriptive of a marriage relationship we aspired to and also how we wanted our home to revolve around Christ.
    Love this blog!

    Ohhh yippee congrats — and Happy Wedding Day!
    Our verse…do you remember? All I remember is that I had the giggles so badly and that I talked to Will the entire time. Wow, it is so sad, I don’t remember anything that was said to us during the service. :-) oops! But 11 years later we are still in love.

    Thanks for bringing a smile to my day. Congrats on 10 years!

    We had 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. I just love vv. 1-4! I could have everything, and if I don’t have love, it all means nothing.

    Blessings to you and your husband!
