Marriage Monday- The Surprise Of Christian Marriage


I think my marriage was filled with surprise from the very beginning. We met in November of 1984, were engaged in December of 1984, and got married in April of 1985. So many people thought it was to quick, and said our marriage would not last. Well, on April 6th, we will celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. So, surprise surprise everyone!! Sometimes in a Christian marriage, there can be daily surprises. You never know what God is up to, but it is always something for your own good, that will only make your marriage stronger. God is the glue that securely holds our marriage together. We intend to stay stuck together with our Father forever. My husband has been hit with some major surprises in our marriage, through sickness and health has really been tested. My health is not good at all, but surprisingly, it has brought us even closer. We are strong, when we are going through the fires.
