23 Years Ago.....

*This post is included in this week's
"Your Life Your Blog" at Real Life:

your life your blog

It was the summer of 1983. A new high school graduate went to hang out with school friends on a Friday night not too long after graduation. Just eighteen years old, she had no clue that in three short years, she would be standing at the back of a church with her Daddy, waiting for her cue to walk down that aisle and exchange vows with the boy she had just met. The one sitting across from her on the patio of Taco Bell on Frayser Boulevard!

She didn't know then that married life takes work and that they would have their struggles, but that they would be better together than any other way. That someday they would welcome six children (children they both said they'd never have) into this world. And she certainly could not comprehend what it would mean to stand strong together as they buried one of those children.....

Or that they could persevere over the years despite hard times. And that they would turn to Jesus...

She didn't know that it would be possible to sit back one day and say, "Today is our 23rd wedding anniversary. Can you believe it?"

It just doesn't seem possible...

Better together, forever~
