16 Years

Yesterday was my 16th wedding anniversary and my husband bought me this incredible vase of flowers (blue and white- our wedding colours) and I made this card for him.  He took me out to dinner and we enjoyed a walk along the Yukon river until we got rained out.  Then he bought me ice cream and we went to a quaint little bookstore for a peek around.  All in all, it was so nice to just spend time just the two of us!
I am so blessed and I look forward to many more years with my wonderful man!  We chose a life verse when we became engaged -Psalm 62:6 " He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved."  We have built upon the ROCK and it has held us fast through many trials and struggles.  The Lord has blessed us with great love and companionship.  I was totally right when I said yes to this man!

Beautiful, Jen. Hope you had an amazing anniversary. I just attended a wedding today of a lovely young couple who are just beginning their ministry together. Pastor reminded us that when the husband loves his wife like Christ loved the church, it makes it easy for the wife to obey her husband. And when they wife obeys her husband and submits to him the way Christ submitted Himself to the Father, it becomes easier for him to lead her, etc. It's all a circle of each of us loving one another the way that Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her, and then.....the rest is not a struggle. My heart just ACHES for couples who don't have that deep, wonderful love that God intended for married couples to experience. I am so blessed to have friends who love each other the way God intended. It blesses my heart to know that you both live for Him, serve Him, and enjoy life the way God intended us to enjoy it - through that perfect love He gives us. Hope you have MANY more happy years together.
Blessings to you both,
Karen

Congratulations on your anniversary Jennifer! Wishing you & your hubby many more happy years together. In a world where so many take marriage lightly it is awesome to hear of a love like you have. I am lucky enough to have the love of a wonderful man as well & we just celebrated 41 yrs together last month! Life is good!
Hugs, Renee

Happy Anniversary, Jennifer! I think it is so wonderful that you built your marriage on that scripture. That's so beautiful! I'm so glad you got some alone time. I know how precious that time is when it is just the two of you. Congrats, and may God bless your marriage with many more anniversaries to come.
