Happy Anniversary, Mrs Decker!

Clueless….I was…aren’t we all? Twenty years ago today, I confirmed the 2nd biggest decision that I have ever made in my life. What was I expecting? What was I thinking (that it would be like)? Did I have any idea the road that 20 years of marriage would include some unexpected detours, a couple of tricky potholes, some tricky turns, a few speedbumps and best of all – the journey of a lifetime?

As I look back at pictures and videos…I see friends and loved ones who have left this earth…I see friends and loved ones who no longer love and have left each other…I see friends and loved ones who have been left more than their share of suffering. In it all, I see a moment, a lifetime and a journey including them both that brings me to this milepost.

Don’t get me wrong, I made some bad decisions, a few wrong turns and even stalled out the clutch a few times. But, each time, God faithfully got me back on track, headed in the right direction. Just when it seems that the trek is too tough, He reminds me that His road was a troubled one, too. He also reminds me that the trip is smoother when I allow Him to drive.

I’m sure I’ve missed out on a few things on this highway as I pass by…but you know – fewer trinkets streamline the passage, less snack stops and potty breaks shape the perseverance and being another mile down the road satisfies the paternal heart.

As for me and my house, I’m joining the 20/20 Club…see you in 2027!

Happy 20th Anniversary Diane – I Love You!
