27 Years

Tomorrow marks our 27th wedding anniversary.  Yesterday was Stevens birthday.  We didn't get to celebrate either one, really.

I worked yesterday evening, he worked all day.  Tomorrow, I leave for four days for a gymnastics meet.

It usually is this way.  AT least for the last 10 years or so.

Each year we have had soccer tournaments or trips on our anniversary/his birthday week.  It took us two years to celebrate our 25th anniversary!

But, we do it.

We make a point to celebrate in some way.  It isn't the cruise, the elaborate trips anywhere, or expensive jewelry; which are all ok.  They just aren't us or where we are right now.

We are fairly simple people.  I say fairly because we are fairly complicated as well!

We choose to love every day.

I met Steven when I was 16 and I have never looked back.  I knew pretty quickly that he was the one I wanted.  Thankfully, he wanted me too!

I can not believe that it is 27 years into our marriage and I am looking forward to the next 27!  I pray that we will continue to choose each other when it gets tough and that we will continue to show our children and grand-children how to love and be loved.   How to follow Jesus in our marriage.

27 years.  In this day and age that seems like an insurmountable feat; but it isn't.  Don't listen to anyone that says it is.
