When I first got married I believed my commitment was with with husband, I promised to love him, honor him, respect him, care for him, and be there for him until death did us apart.
I wanted to make sure that he understood this full well. That he got the point that this oath was made before God and men and I meant business for the rest of our lives. Of course I wanted to live a clean sinless and pure life before God as well.
But with the years I started to become exhausted of fighting and trying to get my point across… with time I’ve realized that my promise and commitment was not with my husband, I swore before men, but my commitment was AND IS to this day with God.
My choice to love my husband is one I must make daily (sometimes multiple times a day 😉).
With the years I’ve learned that no matter how difficult it is to love my husband, or how hard it may be to do life together—throughout the years I’ve had God to show me and help me love Him with His deep love and compassion.
With the years I’ve learned that love and forgiveness is not given to let people get away with wrong—forgiveness is a gift from Jesus to those who decide to forgive to heal their soul, and move on in life.
Loving my spouse is a decisions I make everyday, loving my spouse is a choice despite the mistake WE make, loving my spouse doesn’t excuse wrong, loving my spouse, is an act of care, loving my spouse doesn’t give him the permission to walk all over me, loving my spouse shows him that Jesus loves him.
Loving my spouse invest in strategies, commits, reinvents the wheel, is always willing, compromises, sets goals, try new things, is willing and sets boundaries.
I thank and praise God for giving us BOTH the strengths, courage, and blessings needed for another year together.
✨Happy Wedding Anniversary to Us✨
Bible scripture to live by: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes4:12)
We met by accident, though a car accident. Song to remember for life: “God bless the broken road”.
Love is a choice,
