20 Years of Marriage

And the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him." Genesis 2:18

On October 9 our family celebrated the beginning of our family, the wedding of Dan and Kendra on October 8, 1988. This was our 20th anniversary, a very significant milestone in our family. If you have been following our blog, you will remember Dan and I celebrated on our own with a trip to Bermuda in January of this year, so we wanted to include the children in the celebration when the actual day arrived.

We chose the 9th to celebrate because the 8th fell on a Wednesday, which is when our local church body gathers for prayer. It was very sweet to have our brothers and sisters in Christ pray for our marriage and blessings on our family on the actual anniversary. Then on Thursday evening, we took the family to the Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant, for a 4 course dinner. We started with cheese fondue for vegetables, apples, and bread; then salad; followed by chicken, beef, fish, and shrimp cooked in oil or broth; and finished with a white chocolate and dark chocolate fondue with rice crispy treats, strawberries, bananas, fudge brownies, and cheesecake. I can safely say nobody left hungry!

I am so thankful for the wonderful husband my Father in heaven provided for me. I do not deserve the way he washes me and the rest of the family in the word twice each day and prays for our family and patiently teaches many things to the children. I am so thankful for how he leads us in righteousness and his zeal for the Lord far surpasses mine. I am excited to see what the next 20 years has in store for our family.

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Genesis 2:24
