As we were preparing for a life together, Marcel and I spent a lot of time researching the subject of Biblical Love and Marriage. I was out of a 45 year marriage while Marcel had never been married. I was a Mom to 3, grandmother to 5 – Marcel had never had children. We came from two entirely different places that had shaped and molded us in different ways.
One thing we knew for sure is we wanted God to be #1, if we were to love properly & succeed.
This week, we celebrated our first year together and rated it at 9 out of 10. YAY!
That’s not to say we didn’t have difficulties or challenges.
A couple months into the marriage, we got our cute little Chorkie and we named her Kako. We launched into house renovations at the same time that lasted over 6 months. We had workers in the house regularly and things helter-skelter everywhere. It tried, tested and stretched us.
But, one thing we did at the end of each day was cuddle in bed. For 2 hours, we talked, and talked. It was our connection place to relax and lay everything out. It did wonders for our relationship and kept us on the right path.
“Love is a Choice You Make Everyday.”
God designed marriage to be a life commitment between one man & one woman.
“I do” is a promise to love and be faithful to each other:
- No matter how difficult it gets
- No matter what happens, good or bad
- No matter how much one wants to walk away
The 1st feelings of infatuation can’t fuel that sort of marriage.
