Today We Celebrate 33 Years

Wow. 33 years. June 21, 1975. I remember it like it was yesterday. How blessed I am to be married to this incredible woman, wife, mother, artist, business woman and friend. Debbie has fulfilled so many of the traits of the woman in Proverbs 31."10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life."
One question I have asked Debbie every year is, "When you look back, is there anytime in our marriage that was better than it is now? Was there any year or anytime that we were closer, more connected, or more one?" Thankfully, once again she said no. I love the idea that over time our marriage is getting deeper, richer, sweeter and closer. What about you? Is your marriage moving toward greater one-ness or further apart? Never stop working on it. It is well worth the time and investment.
