One of my favorite days (there’s a lot actually) to remember God’s goodness: husband and my (is that grammatically correct? Husband and mine’s?) anniversary. Three years. Yeow. It’s been fun. Hard. Ugly. Boring, exciting, comfortable, miserable, peaceful, kind, harsh, loving. We’ve run the gamut, as I’m sure everyone else has. No need to go into all the gory details of the past year, but it’s been something. Fo’rilla. The most important thing I’m coming away with over this year is to not take my marriage for granted. When I got married, I just assumed it’d be for life. There wasn’t an alternative. I did not want to raise a child in a broken home. Not an option. How little do I know? Having come back from the brink of my ‘not an option,’ I’m met with a profound gratefulness and understanding about what it means when we say “our God is mighty to save.”

He truly showed Himself mighty and faithful in my marriage, and He will continue to do so. I’m not a perfect wife by any means and I still do my part in hurting my marriage and husband, but without the months during this past year that were clearly disastrous, maybe both of us would’ve missed out on some very valuable lessons. I’m not one to say that things always have to be done the difficult way in order for lessons to be learned, because I don’t believe that, but I am saying that I have decided to take what we did/what happened and better myself by learning from it.

I love my mighty Lord and His precious gift to me, husband. My hope for the next year is that I will see my husband like God does: His precious son He sent His Son to die for. Someone to be cherished and respected, loved in spite of himself, just like God loves me.

No good segue’s into dinner from here, my bad.  Dinner on date night was from Outback. I highly recommend the chicken something-or-other. It was a chicken breast with bacon and cheese on it--how can you go wrong?! And the cheese fries, I don’t even need to explain those. Heaven on an artery clogging, ranch and melted cheese covered, deep fried plate. Whoo! :)And then we saw the Book of Eli, previously reviewed.

    Hey, you! Just letting you know, that I will be following your blog. Already, I really enjoyed (and agreed with) your Anniversary blog. . . I guess everyone goes through rough times but like you said, if you choose to work through them (and it is work), it is definitely worth it. I believe those times are what make you who you are – and hopefully a bettered version.


  3. Thanks guys! :o)
