Marriage Monday ~ 30 Day Marriage Challenge



Dear Friends,

"Two such as you with such master speed Cannot be parted nor swept away From one another Once you are agreed That life is only life forevermore Together wing to wing and oar to oar."

Robert Frost

This was my wonderful husband and my anniversary this past week, we celebrated our many years, many memories and children in the company of family and friends. My husband has been my friend, hero and confidant for many years. Over the years we have had a family mission statement, marriage mission statement and goals. With each one reached, each holiday that passed and each milestone our children reached we celebrated the moment in time and each other. We celebrated not only our marriage and friendship but the fact we were willing to sacrifice our time and energy , to be a team. That meant cheering each other up and on in times of sickness ,hardships, cross country moves,and other lovely things that came our way...LOL

When you make your marriage vows to Love, Honor, and Cherish, you are telling your soon to be spouse,"you are God's gift to me. I will be there for you. Nothing on earth can change that."


I know that Christine is focusing this week on helping your spouse at work. My husbands career is important to him and to our family as is shows my children work ethic, dealing with integrity, the importance of doing your best and our families goals. The children and I try to help by doing things year round that make things easier for him and even small things of giving him time to study for things, getting the books and resources he needs to keep up on things so he doesn't have to go get them, keeping his office clean and making his meals to bring so that he is eating good and can share:) the good treats...LOL

To Honor is also a conscious choice you are making. It means to offer Esteem, Respect, and Courtesy. You promise to think first of your beloved and his or her welfare. Honor gives glory to God because it is entirely unselfish. Honor does not grasp. It boldly offers presence, not presents to the Loved one.

This week I want to continue on our path of honoring each other and helping my husband . I want to especially find special moments and time just for him.


May the Lord bless you , your friendships, marriages and households this week my fellow queens of the castle.


In his endless love,

Angel ():)

Happy Anniversary! When we celebrate our 25th back in December we both wondered where the time had gone!

May God continue to bless your marriage and all of the efforts you put into meeting your goals throughout the next week!

Angel,

Happy Anniversary! I hope that you and your husband were blessed on on the day! I really like how you said that you make his meals for him to bring so that he eats well. I do the same but I've never really looked at it as a blessing more of a chore. Thank you for opening my eyes to view the small things as a blessing.

Have a wonderful and blessed week.

Happy Anniversary! It is always wonderful to be able to congratulate someone for "staying the course." The system has made it so easy to get in and out of marriage, but Praise God for those who keep the vows made unto our Lord!
Blessing to you and your mate, today and always!!

Melanie said...

Happy Anniversary!

It can be hard to find special moments and time just for our husbands. But, it is so important to make sure we do that. Great goal!

Yes, of course you can add a link to my blog! And, I love your blog, so I'm going to link to yours too.

That is so beautiful, Angel. I will commit that to my memory.
I try to be the best help-mate I can be to my Sweetheart - even when I am exhausted :).
Thank you so much for sharing your goals with us this week.
Be blessed today and always.
