Happy Anniversary Baby

This weekend is my 23rd wedding anniversary. My husband and I met while in college all those years ago. Let’s just say he has seen my face a lot. Going into a marriage you take the good you take the bad you take it all in. Just like the theme song to “Facts of Life” says.

There has been a lot of ups and equally a lot of downs. He has stuck through my craziness and all my illnesses which were not present when we were married.

And still he is there with me as we continue to forge ahead together. I am blessed, truly incredible blessed. I am grateful for my husband even if it is not always said or shown.

The little things matter people. When he opens the door for me that still makes me go awe how sweet. The time he rubs my head and calls me his term of endearment which is scrawny weasel which to most people might sound odd. But to me it says he loves me.

I read about the high rate of divorce that is present in today’s society. It is easy to get married and then get it dissolved just like one goes through a drive through window. When I see the statistics it makes me more appreciative of what I have in my marriage. It is not easy, it takes work. But the payoffs is priceless.

Happy Anniversary to my husband.

“Real Marriage:The Truth About Sex, Friendship and Life Together” by Mark and Grace Driscoll

The book for review is “ Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship and Life Together” by Mark and Grace Driscoll.

Pastor Mark and his wife Grace share their experiences with their marriage as they talk about the ups and downs that plagued them. It is not a guide per say like other books that are in this genre. The couple takes us into the problems that married couples encounter along the way including their own.

Whether this is your predicament or not, you will find some useful information that can work for your personal life. It is not an in your face this is how it needs to be done read. The words are soothing and caring and delivered in a way that you are not offended by the advice offered by this couple.

Even if you feel this book is not for you overall, the questioned listed will make you think and evaluate where you stand with your spouse. It will make you step back and go hmm. That alone makes this book worth a look over, even if you don’t read the whole thing. I was not familiar with Pastor Mark before this book but would definitely read another by him.
