My wife (Diane) and I celebrated our anniversary last week – but, there is another milestone that has been reached today worth honoring in a BIG way. A couple very close to my wife and I are celebrating their silver anniversary today. Congratulations! However, the past 25 years have not been without their share of blemishes, as this couple has endured 2 periods of separation and what appeared to be certain divorce….BUT GOD….receives all glory for a relationship restored when it humanly looked almost impossible. Isn’t that what God can do – when we let Him?
So, whether it’s Warren Barfield’s “pretzel on the floor” or Ray Barone’s “suitcase on the stairs” – how many times do we allow the trivial become the larger-than-life obstacles preventing real intimacy in our relationships? Do we deny our Creator access into our lives because His purposes are blurred by our inability to see beyond our selfish desires?
I want to be the first to stand in the ovation for our friends celebrating 25 years today. I hope to join you in a few years as we mark every milestone of marriage in praise to the One who chose to honor this institution by making it the standard for His Son’s relationship with us. Who cares when your anniversary is, celebrate your marriage today…God does.
