Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy 24th Anniversary to my sweet fella!

24 years ago I married the best thing that has ever happened to me. The Lord brought us together and there is nothing that will ever separate us. When we got married, Jimbo already had a 5 year old daughter and in the next 24 years, the Lord blessed us with 3 more beautiful girls and a whole passel of grandbabies.

We have had 24 wonderful years. I can honestly say that there isn't anything that I would go back and change. There may have been some times that were hard, but they were definitely learning experiences. The Lord has done a marvelous work in us and through us. He has blessed us more than I can even fathom.

As I type this, I am on the phone with my daughter Megan and Mikaela and Eli are singing in the background, "Happy Valentines Day, Nana Heart" and other songs that don't make any sense. I think I heard Eli say, Nana Cucu.... Anyway, I know that was random, but that is where my heart is. My sweet grandbabies.

I hope that you all have a very happy day. I am so thankful that I have a husband who loves me and takes care of me. He honestly cares about my happiness. He is thoughtful and loving. He is a man of God. But most of all he is mine.

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1 Corinthians 13:7)

Happy Anniversary, sweetheart!

In Him,

That was beautiful! I am so blessed to have my anniversary on February 12th and then Valentine's with the love of my life, Mark.
This year is #26 because when GOD restored our marriage we just cut out the two years we spent rolling in the pit of sin.

GOD put into HIS sea of forgetfulness and that's where it belongs unless it can be used to testify of GOD and HIS great mercy.

How precious it is to hear of marriages that are long and enduring in an age of throw away and disposable everything! GOD is the best when HE knits two people together!
