Our Anniversary Celebration

I know I promised to post today about our extravagant mystery get away in celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary, but before I give away all the details, I first and foremost want to Praise the Lord for my marriage! I praise Him for the man He gave me and the desire that God placed in my heart , to be his helpmeet.

You see I believe in the holy union of marriage. I believe according to Scripture that marriage is the first union God created, way back in Genesis 2. (Genesis 2:18) I believe God believes in marriage. (Malachi 3:6). I also believe that Satan has declared an all out war on the holy union of one man and one wife.

Beside my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, my marriage is the most important relationship in my life. I adore my son and He is an integral part of our family, but Lord willing our son will leave our home and cleave unto the wife God brings him one day(Genesis 2:24). If I do not cherish and honor the marriage I have now, we may become two strangers at the end of our child rearing, with only fragments of a marriage remaining.

We work hard at our marriage and I believe our marriage thrives because Christ is the center of our marriage. Both my husband and I believe we are nothing in and of ourselves. Any success we have in any area of our lives is by God's grace and mercy.

Marriage is at times hard work. We are both sinners saved by grace, with an inherent sin nature. As my Husband has said many times before, our Soul got saved, not our flesh. However God has placed the desire in my heart to meet the needs of this man, I call my husband. We will be talking at length about the desire in a woman's heart toward her husband in 0ur upcoming marriage series.

I said all that, to say this , I LOVE MY MAN!! I look forward to our romantic getaway in just 2 days. As I said this is a bit extravagant for us, but we are celebrating in style this year! You can read here and see pictures of this 10 room castle.I hope to be sharing some fun pictures of the Inn and our anniversary celebration. We will also be renewing our wedding vows to one another on Sunday April 5th in our evening Church service. We want to stand before God and man and say that we are as committed today as we were 15 years ago! To God be the Glory!!!

Can I encourage you all to work hard on your marriage, cherish the spouse God has given you, and above all else seek God first in all that you do!! It is my belief, if you do all this, you will have a marriage worth praising! I am praying for you!

Blessings, Michelle

P.S. Have you hugged your hubby today?
