Dear, Lord, You have seen us through many trials and joys in our married life. Today we are undertaking another chapter in the wonderful adventure you’ve created for us. We will need every ounce of energy, stamina and ability to endure why lies ahead. Today, as we move out of a house that has been our home for 24 years and into another well loved place, we ask that you be with us in this endeavor.
Your strength will energize us. Your love will give us endurance. Your patience will put up with our stubborn wills and wanting to hang on to the things of this world. Only you can fill our hearts with excitement for another day.
As I recall all what we’ve lived through in this our “restoration” house, I will feel some nostalgia and sadness, but as I look forward to our new dwelling, I can see ahead to a simpler life which will continue to flourish until you call us to our final home with you in heaven.
Thank you for your many blessings, for strengthening our marriage, for building a lifetime of memories. We look forward to what you have planned for us next. Amen!
