We were invited to a 40th anniversary party and what fun it was! We had a lovely meal (I should say every one else had a lovely meal), and saw friends we had not seen for a very long time. We were all together last evening and it was an evening of visiting, fun and surprises. We even had entertainment!
The “groom” sang to the “bride”! As the meal was just finishing up with strawberry short cake, Elvis appeared singing, “I Just Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.” The program was a surprise to the “bride”, he sang a couple more songs and then he had planned a slide presentation that was lovely.
You may be wondering why I’m telling you this. Well, I was struck with the word committment. I am always so grateful when a marriage lasts through thick and thin. It is such a good example to young people today who are just starting out.
These two were older when they were married and he really didn’t want to get married again as he had already been through a divorce but she talked him into it. At the end of the slide show the words on the screen said, “And They Lived Happily Ever After.”
If you are married you know living happily ever after does not just happen. I’m sure these two would be the first to tell you they have had to work on their marriage, each giving 101 percent.
If you are struggling in your marriage I recommend Kevin Lehman’s books. Be prepared he talks a lot about S E X, he has some very good advice.
Marriage is a wonderful thing and I pray yours is faboo, if it isn’t do something about it. Spend some time in prayer, read some books, find a good counselor, confide in a friend who does have a good marriage. We can learn a lot from each other. I don’t mean tell your friend all about your troubles but ask her what they are doing to make their marriage successful.
Have a great Monday, today I will go weigh and they will measure my progress I’ll let you know how I’m doing by tomorrow.
