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?
