I probably already posted on this thread but every day our marriage is it is renewed as we grow in the things of God and especially his Word.
Recently I rejoice as my husband joins me in church ministry where we act together for others as part of a team. We know how important the fellowship of other Christians is. We are both former missionaries and even met through mutual missionary friends many years ago. Our mission goes on wherever God does lead: home, family, neighborhood, city, church, workplace (although we are now both retired).
But I like most of all that we are mutual partners, parents, friends, sweethearts, grandparents, out door lovers, cat lovers, bible lovers, committed Christians, and inclusive of others in our life.
We don't share time on the Internet and there I have to be careful I don't get too distracted; but he has his own interests too apart from mine.
We take good care of each other. He has survived heart surgery (14 yrs ago) and I am a cancer survivor.(20 years ago). This has meant many times of special care, patience, and support..sometimes more than others.
We have been married 48 years for which I give God praise and glory especially for sticking with us and getting us through some very tough times when we were younger. And that He is with us now. This is what to me is good about marriage.
peace and blessings,
turtledove (and husband)..
"The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land ." SofS 2:12 (RSV)
