Words can't really express for me today all that I'm feeling, on my 20th wedding anniversary. What a journey it has been for us, both the good and the bad, the ups, downs and sideways. All I can say is, we were soooo young!! Relationships are not always easy, and I honestly think our being best friends, and our faith and commitment to One greater, are what kept us through the lows and hard spots. My wordcrafting husband has also shared his thoughts; if you all haven't already guessed, he's Talking Bear. For those reading this, I do so want to encourage you in your relationships. There seems to be so much coming against marriage, faithfulness, commitment these days. I do believe Love conquers all things.
"Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love"
"All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest--never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership."
-Ann Landers Says Truth Is Stranger..., 1968
and from TB's blog:
"More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse."
and, as I am a dog-lover...
"Getting a dog is like getting married. It teaches you to be less self-centered, to accept sudden, surprising outbursts of affection, and not to be upset by a few scratches on your car."
Blessings to you, fellow blog readers! :)
