Twenty Two Years

“Love is not affectionate feeling but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” C.S. Lewis

We marked twenty two years of marriage yesterday. Before we went out to celebrate, we had lunch at home as a family. All nine chairs were occupied and we bowed our heads to pray. About half way through, my husband paused and we both had tears in our eyes. So many blessings, so many hard things, so much change, so much fun and unexpected joy. It can be overwhelming at times, this love. Thankfulness for everyday routines, date nights and early mornings. Amazed at grace and perseverance. And the reminder that His plans are far greater than anything I could have asked for or dared imagine. Happy Anniversary…
