52 years ago today, I married the man of my dreams.  He didn’t come on a white horse.  He didn’t promise me a life of luxury.  He had become my best friend in high school at the age of 14.  We pretty much grew up together, even after we got married.  We have been blessed to have the Lord, God as the head of our house and I believe that’s why our marriage has endured for so long.

Our road has not always been easy.  We have faced financial ruin and rebuilt.  We have raised three wonderful children who gave us three amazing grandchildren.  We have shared many joyous moments, lots of anxiety, pain and illness and have always remained faithful to one another.

Most people find it difficult to believe that a marriage can last for this many years, but both of us took our vows seriously.  We didn’t give up when things got tough.  We were helpers to one another.  We built each other up through adversity and discouragement. We trusted – cared about each other as if we were one body – loved even when we were unlovable – never gave up.

Marriage should last forever, but it doesn’t always.  When you share the same belief system, it makes it possible.  When the world gets in the way – when ambition takes the place of family – when the grass looks greener somewhere else – when envy, greed and dishonesty replace sincerity, honor and satisfaction – sin enters in.

Trust in the Lord in all things and your life will be blessed in good times and in bad.

Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband, the one God planned for me.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  2. Congrats on 51 years of marriage !! Couples, both with Christ Centered lives…is a beautiful thing !! I do believe at least one of the two, must be Walking with the Lord, to be able to go through the struggles and trials found in all marriages, and still be devoted to each other…

    I would like to share 3 videos by Francis Chan and his wife Lisa, of just what a Christ centered relationship will look like…in hope of one of UR readers who is contemplating marriage will view as a per-requisite to finding a future spouse…

    Blessings in Christ, bruce
