My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary Wednesday and I think that deserves a blog post. Our lives portray the absolute Goodness of God's Grace. Only His Grace could have brought two damaged strangers together and made it work. We are total polar opposites in every way. He likes white bread and I like multi-grain; He sleeps cold and I sleep hot; He loves mayonnaise and I love mustard. You get the picture. We made a commitment when we were first married to stay together. This was not just our wedding vows, but a deep down knowing that one of us would never ever leave the other no matter what. Leaving was never an option. However, there were times I would have killed him if there had been a gun in the house. It hasn't been easy. We've weathered the storms of my depression and dysfunction because of childhood sexual abuse. We've weathered his two serious, life-threatening health issues. We've weathered our daughters' teenage years full of pain and addiction. Only God's Grace could have brought us this far, and I praise Him for my husband, my friend, my companion. "I said to the Lord, "You are my Master. Every good thing I have comes from You", Psalm 16:2.
