Twenty Five Years Ago

Twenty five years ago I stood at a church altar and swore my eternal love to this beautiful girl. It was about a year earlier that I had asked her to marry me and promised to love her for the rest of her life. At first she laughed in my face. (to her defense.. I was trying to act romantic on one knee instead of the crazy , funny guy I usually am, so I had caught her off guard.)

When she actually responded in kind, instead of giving me the "yeah right!" look I was ecstatic!!!
I was also scared to death that I would fail her in some way and not keep my word. That fear of wounding the one we love , should always be in the back of our minds.

Those who fail at their marriages are the ones who stop caring and trying to understand. Who quit caring if anything they are doing MIGHT be hurting their loved one.

God don't ever let me stop caring!! Don't ever let me stop being scared that I might lose her.
You made her for me.

Thank you Lord
