Make it an even dozen


Scott and I celebrated our 12 year anniversary last weekend.  Yep, that's right.  An even dozen.  I'm looking forward to adding many more dozen years to those numbers.

The odds are stacked against all of us married couples when you look at today's statistics.  I heard that the divorce rate for remarriage is even higher than for first marriages.  I can totally see how this is possible because of the complex situations that are created when you blend families.   

While a blended family is not God's perfect design for marriage, He will honor and bless it when both parents are committed to Him and give Him first place in their lives.  I've often heard that the illustration of a triangle is a perfect symbol of a successful marriage.

As the husband and wife each grow closer to God, they grow closer to one another.

I pray for God's continued blessings on my marriage.  I pray that He will teach me to be a better wife, lover, and friend to this special man I believe He created just for me.
