Happy Anniversary, Mister!

Eleven years ago, to the very day, and on a Friday morning, Mister and I became husband and wife.

I was pretty scared, but God told me to marry him, and I did love him so, so I did. Mister was confident and happy about us. I am happy to report that our marriage continues to blow me away and far exceed my expectations of how wonderful an earthly relationship could be.

But I know why it is that way. It's because my man is sold out to God. (As am I!) As Ecclesiastes 4 says,  

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Not only does our marriage enable us to each serve God better, but it makes us better.  It brings us closer to God, and closer in Him.  It surely is nothing we could even come close to on our own.

I have never been happier in my life.

First of all, Happy Anniversary to a very special couple!

My niece, who now believes that there are "no good men" out there, and I were just discussing that scripture among others. I told her that I would pray and she told me not to bother as she's fine single. Okay, my love, if you are happy and that's what you want, but what's that bitter tone about "no good men" left?! So many young women out there who would love to be married if there were a nice man available. Are they all gone?
