Celebration of Marriage, made in Heaven
This page is dedicated to the Lord and Master of my life. He is my all. He never has forsaken me in times of need & He never will.
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let no man not
I want to say thank you Andy for coming into my life when you did. I know who sent you! He heard my plea's that I had forgotten about. I tend to block out alot of my old prayers, but this came back to me very clear as I was writing this page.
I never had a childhood so to speak, not that of a normal life anyway. What is normal? I mean a family life. A husband and a wife bringing up children. That is normal to me.
I never had the love from a man that was normal either. I did not have the guidance of a father in the home to show me this. I never saw it with my own eyes and how it was suppose to work either. For that I felt cheated, for so long. I felt insecure and alone.
When I did meet my Savior, I prayed this prayer; Lord help me find the man for me, the one that you have special for me. That simple prayer so long ago was answered some years later. After many mistakes and blaming God for the decisions I had made without HIM. He does not make the mistakes, we do! When we choose to be selfish and prideful.
When you (my husband) walked in the room that night HE told me that YOU were the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with.
I can't say thank you for asking me to marry you... cause I told you. But I can say thank you for being so receptive. Lord knows I was scared to death! We only had known each a few weeks before I told you this. And four months later we were married.
I want you to know that it has been wonderful sharing my life with you. God has given to me the perfect man. God knew what I needed! I had hurt God so much in the past and now I felt like I was being rewarded! Maybe I was being rewarded, not for my failures, but for coming back to HIM. There in turn I was rewarded, not for the sinful things that I had done, but for giving Him my heart & soul!
Now since I did not chose this man to be my husband, that it is why I believe that he is perfect. Not perfect in the sense of PERFECTION. He loves me unconditionally. That is perfect in my eyes. I am a handful at times. I know this unconditional love issue is to be one of the biggest reasons for sending this man to me. I have learned through my husband what it means to love unconditionally. After running from God and all the world for years. He gave me a new beginning, one of which I felt very unworthy to accept. This is exactly how Jesus loves us!
God was giving me a new beginning, a Christ centered marriage, and children. He is a awesome God!
I never walked down the aisle to meet this man, but one day I will. For I would re-live that day everyday if I could.
We got married in a court house six years ago on January 22, my birthday. I did not choose that day so he would not forget either one of them. I chose that day because,
after so many mistakes and disappointments along the way, this is the day the Lord hath made! I will rejoice and be glad for what he has given me.
I know God built the foundation of this marriage, He built the love for this marriage! We are not perfect, but we are forgiven.
The best thing about my marriage is that God created it especially for us. I rejoice in that, not just once a year, but often.
My husband is loving, giving and never selfish. Yes I said never selfish. I come first in all things with this man. Our time together goes by so quickly.
Bad marriages are created not by God, but by the people in them that are not willing to have Christ the center of them. I say this because I was a Christian and married once before. I was not willing to keep Christ the center! I thought I was bigger then God! OH was I wrong, what a awful attitude to take on. Of course I am talking of Christian marriages here. Yes I have made a bold statement by saying that, but it is true. I thought for many years that God made a mistake. He does not make the mistakes , we do. We choose not to keep Him the center of our marriages for selfish and prideful reasons. I am in this marriage for the long haul.
Through all the trials and storms that occur in our lives. We come out of it closer to God and much more sensitive to the Holy Spirit within us. I will keep these painful lessons throughout the years as stepping stones, for where I am today in Christ and where I long to be in Him for years to come. But I feel that our time here on earth is very short indeed and I cannot wait to hear that trumpet sound! I am so thankful for He gave me the family I longed to have and thankful that He hears and never forgets that smallest of prayers
I know that the Lord will continue to bring us closer to each other. Although I can't imagine how, I know that we will.
For I don't know what lies ahead of us, but with you I know that I will be safe. You have seen me through some rough times these past two years.
I want to thank you for giving me comfort when I felt the world crashing in. I know that God uses you everyday in my life and sometimes I can't see how, nor do I thank you enough for being there for me and our children. I want you to know that I love you more then words can say.
I am so thankful for each day that we have together. God
truly does have a purpose for us and what that holds I don't know, but with you at my side it already is a blessing. So I embrace it before it comes.
