Planning and Celebrating 25 years

On May 17th of this year Rick and I will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! What an amazing and beautiful journey we have already shared. Because we did not know the Lord when we got married we wanted to honor Him and honor our love for each other by renewing our vows. We talked about it for years and then after the events of the last few years we decided that 25 years was the perfect time to publicly declare our love for each other and our dependence upon God.

On Friday, May 20th at Chippewa E. Free Church that event is going to happen! Pastor Jeff McNicol will be officiating at our vow renewal ceremony. Because we live in Pennsylvania and it is such s sweet tradition we are also going to have a cookie reception. If you have never attended a wedding in Pennsylvania it is hard to describe how neat it is to see all of the different cookies lined up at the reception: Every kind, every shape and every size. It reminds me of how each of us has been made so different. We each have different personalities, looks, talents and gifts.

So I have been busy looking for a dress, planning for two very sweet teenagers to sing during the celebration and having an invitation designed. It has been so much fun.

25 years: what a blast it has been. But we have also walked through the valley, together; holding on to each other and being held by God. Laughter and sorrow, mountaintops and valleys define our marriage. I am married to my best friend, my husband, my soul mate and one of the most Godly men I know. I am blessed.

25 years together and praying that we have many, many more.  Thank you God!
