40 years and still happy

This Saturday December 6th will be our 40th wedding anniversary. Yes, that's right, our 40th. I believe this to be a real accomplishment since it is reported that 50% of all marriages today end in divorce. Let me start by saying I make no judgments of anyone who has been divorced or remarried. While at the same time I will not refuse to celebrate and rejoice in our accomplishment for fear that someone might think my celebration is one of being prideful. It is by the grace of God that any two people raised in different families, with possibly different values and having different personalities, can live together for any length of time. Though staying together does require something of each individual. I think over the next few days I will tell our story. I hope you will be inspired and encouraged.
