It's Been 30 Years!


     Last week my husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary. He would be the good looking guy on the left.  In all honesty they have not been perfect years, but I wouldn't trade those years for anything! I still miss him when he is away, and AMAZINGLY-- he misses me! Sometimes it is hard for me to imagine that, but it's a great feeling to know that I am loved by him.
     I have learned so much over the years, and believe me, this CONTROL FREAK had a lot to learn, and still does! I am just so blessed that God brought the two of us together, and I am looking forward to many more years.
     Susan has a great post here on praying for your husband. Some great ideas to show him how much you care and honor him in your prayers. I will share one very  important lesson that I have learned over the years, and this is it, I am not his Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does His job much better than me. Pray and ask God to show him areas of concern to you, and you just might find out as I have many times, I am the problem. Ask God to be the center of your marriage. Seek His guidance in all that you do and He will honor that.
    Maybe my wonderful husband will stop by and read this while he is away, so....
I LOVE YOU HON!  YOU ARE THE BEST!
Have a great week.
Blessings,
Jackie

That sentence,"I am not his Holy Spirit", I know exactly what you're talking about. How many times have I said, "don't you think you should......it would be better if you.....why don't you".

God has grown me up in the 24 yrs we've been married and I thank Him for it, and so does my husband :)

Congratulations! In this day and age 30 years is truly a testimony to your commitment and love of the Lord. Marriage isn't easy and I'm glad you didn't log on here to say it's all butterflies and flowers. It's hard work but so rewarding. Iron sharpens iron and that's how we are in marriage.

I feel terrible, I didn't post about my anniversary last week at all. I probably should, James deserves a post just for him. :) We were married on the 16th, when was your anniversary?

Congratulations on your 30 years together!! Interestingly your post caught my eye as today is our 30th wedding anniversary (Tuesday the 22nd). I too can't believe it has been that long. On to the next 30!

Thirty years in today's world, is an event truly worth celebrating. Congratulations to the two of you! What a nice looking family you have! The lessons we learn along this journey of life are so valuable, and with grace we can pass them on to the next generation. You shared a beautiful, meaningful post! Wishing you many more exciting and growing years together.
