Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary! While a successful marriage is always something to celebrate, I think it is especially so when a couple starts ‘behind the game’ and is able to overcome some really big hurdles. Two years ago, I posted a bit about starting off with less-than-ideal circumstances and the beautiful way that God uses those circumstances to help us die to ourselves to become more like him. It is one of my favourite posts, entitled Against the Odds.
Last night, we had a yummy dinner with our children and then, after putting our baby to bed, headed out to a local restaurant for some adult time over chocolate fondue. We do not take for granted the privileged position we are in having two capable teenagers who can look after our home and children to allow us time to reconnect. It is just one of the great blessings of being married for 20 years.
