Today marks a significant milestone for Sue and me as we have been married for 40 years this Sunday. I am so very grateful to God for the last 40 years and would like to share some of the things that have helped us to develop a strong marriage –
- Our shared faith in God and love for the Lord Jesus Christ is the foundation on which our marriage is built. We love to pray and share and serve God together.
- Communication is essential in our relationship. We talk about everything and show respect in areas where we disagree. We don’t hold grudges but forgive and move on.
- We are committed to our marriage, showing faithfulness and care for one another. We make time for each other, serve one another and support one another in our areas of strength and weakness.
- We enjoy life together and build on our friendship. We love to walk together, travel together, and enjoy endless cups of coffee out together.
We have faced many challenges in life together and we pray that God will continue to bless us and grow our relationship in the years ahead.
And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 1 John 3:23
