As I approach the 25 year mark of the day I was married (July 25, 1987) - I guess I have been thinking a lot about my married life with my husband.
We met in October of 1984 at a singles event at the Clarence Church of Christ. I have to say if there was one foundational thing that has kept us together all of these years - it is the promises we made to each other and God.
This verse from Ecclesiastes has often been in the forefront of my mind. Our marriage isn't just about the two of us - but about God living in us and with us.
Even on our wedding invitation, we had a little sketch of two candles giving off two circles of light that connected with one another (kind of like a venn diagram) and a dove (representing the Holy Spirit) diving into the center part.
It has been a blessing to share my life with Larry and to live together with God in the center of our marriage.
