And my very own individual Creme Brulee!! Perfect for a nice quiet dinner-- just us!!
And then out for a movie....!
I love this man so much...He makes me so happy.
In 28 years - well let's just say we've been through alot. It took us many years to get to the point where we are today. Lots of learning and changing, talks and tears. But the changing didn't come from us, it came from God-- completely and totally from Him. We had lived and tried to have a good marriage for years before we just couldn't make it work anymore. That's when we knew we needed help. Help to love each other, help to forgive each other for the years of not meeting each others needs, each others expectations, for hurt feelings, for things said. We needed help to get to know- really know - the other one and to accept them for who they were.
And God changed our hearts. He really did!! I can't explain how but I know when. One minute we were ready to call it quits and the next we loved each other again-- just enough to try. Gradually He filled our hearts with love again, with joy again, with excitement at the possibility that things could be good, real, deep, and different than ever before. And it has been.....day by day...as we let God into the deepest places of our souls...He has given us this relationship. And words can't express my gratitude and awe in His works......
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100: 4-5
