If you’ve wondered why there are little wedding rings floating down the page, it is because today is our ninth wedding anniversary. Nine years ago today I became David’s wife and I am thankful for it every single day.
I’ve written a little before about my single days. I don’t take marriage for granted. I feel incredibly blessed to be in a happy marriage with my best friend. Especially in this day and age, I know this is not always the case whether the people involved are Christians or not. I do not know why God in His extreme grace has chosen to bless me in this manner, but my heart is filled with gratitude that He has.
It is humbling to realize that everything good we have is from God’s hand. We can’t take credit for our marriage. If God had left it up to us, we probably would have both “settled” for someone else long before we ever met each other. But God kept saying “no” to anything less than His best for us. How thankful we are that in our Heavenly Father’s omnipotence and omniscience He said “no” several times so He could say a resounding “YES” to that which was the best for us.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
