He's Still the One

Just about this time, twenty-four years ago, Randy & I promised to love one another for the rest of our lives. So far, so good! :)

I can't speak for Randy (yes, I know I do any other time, but this is different!), but for me? These years have been fabulous. Sure, we've had our ups and downs like any one else, but the difference for me was that after we were getting up from a "down," we were still holding hands.

Our marriage has been what I always thought marriage should be - a partnership with your best friend; someone who you can tell all your secrets to and who loves in spite of them. I have been blessed with that someone. Randy loves me no matter what - when I'm happy or when I'm mean. I always know that I can count on him to be there for me.

I am grateful that God brought us together. This is a second marriage for both of us and by all the statistics, our marriage shouldn't have lasted. But, when God is in the midst of something, those statistics don't matter. He has been the glue that has held us together - our faith in Him has made our partnership strong, unbreakable even. And I am grateful.

And just how do we celebrate our anniversary? Well, by getting up at 4am and traveling for 16 hours to get home for Christmas! Actually, we won't even be home then, we're stopping at Dan & Debbie's for a couple of nights before heading to my parents' on Wednesday.

Are we party animals or what?!?!! :)

Until the next time . . .


  1. Congratulations on your 24th anniversary. Like you, Linda and I have both been married before and we will be celebration our 25th year in March of 2010.

    All things happen for a reason, and we both truly believe we had to go through some rough spots to get to where we are today.

    Life is good. :-)


  2. Happy Anniversary!! Isn't it wonderful to be married to your best friend? Isn't it even more wonderful to know God is the glue and your life is in his hands!!! Here's to many many more!!

    God Bless
