Reflecting Back on Our 49 Years of Marriage

This week Steve and I are reflecting back on the years we’ve been married. It’s hard for us to believe that we were married 49 years ago this week. Sometimes we’ve wondered if we could make it. But we hung in there, leaned in, and worked things out so we Read More…

Our Anniversary Marriage Celebration

This is our Marriage Celebration Week! Yes, we’re celebrating our anniversary all this week (we were married on March 18, 1972). We figured a week of celebration isn’t extravagant, by any means. And I can tell you, it’s been great! It goes along with the scripture, in Ephesians 5:1, which Read More…

Anniversary Celebrations: Honor Your Love Beyond the Wedding

Anniversary celebrations —we LOVE them! That’s especially true this time of year because we just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. We can hardly believe that 47 years ago we were two (VERY) naïve young people walking down the aisle to say, “I do.” And now, as we look back we Read More…

Anniversary Staycation: Another Way to Celebrate Love

A few weeks ago we celebrated our wedding anniversary. YAY! It’s hard to believe we’ve been married this long (almost 5 decades). What’s great is that our love for each other seems to ramp up with each passing year. The Love Story of our marriage didn’t start out that way, Read More…

MENOPAUSE: A Season We Didn’t See Coming

Anniversaries happen every year. We love celebrating in special ways, and I love keeping track of all the things we’ve done. But I’ve noticed something—time never goes back.

Today is our anniversary. 45 years ago today, we said, “I do.” We walked down the aisle of a small church and gave our vow to “love, honor, and cherish each other, for better or worse, in sickness and in health, keeping only to each other, til death do us Read More…

The Marital Union of Two Lives – MM #245

On March 18, 1972 we married each other. Thankfully, we just celebrated our wedding anniversary. I say thankfully, because we know we have MUCH to be thankful for. Not everyone makes it to this remarkable stage of marriage and can testify to love each other more today than ever before. Read More…

Our Anniversary: The Celebrating Continues

Today is our anniversary. Over 4 decades ago we said, “I do.” YEAH GOD!!! Our wedding was many years ago. But the celebrating continues to this day. We said, “I do” and we still say, “I do” to this day, and every day we’re gifted with. We’re happily celebrating a Read More…

Anniversaries: A Time to Reflect

It was March 18, 1972, that I stood in a small church in Troy, Michigan (USA). I was waiting nervously for my bride to walk down the aisle to begin a new life together as husband and wife. How nervous was I? Well, technically I “married the pastor.” That is Read More…
