We Celebrate Together
Tomorrow is my and my husband’s 31st wedding anniversary. We go through life together, in the best of times and in the worst of times. A Bible passage I read today, I believe, applies well to this.
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Life sure does go by fast. Recently, we went to Maine. It sure was fun! Lobster is one of my favorite meals, and I LOVE the ocean! But, if we don’t live like we are a team, side by side, we will miss some important times, some fun and special times. We will miss learning lessons together. Encouraging each other when one or both of us experience hurt, sickness and pain, is how we experience life together, not alone.
We Spend Time Together, Working
It matters that we work together and don’t leave one of us experiencing something difficult, alone. We are working on some house projects right now. In fact, we hurried and got a few jobs done faster than we normally would because we had our house appraised. However, if it wasn’t for both of us working hard, we would not have completed what was necessary to do. We go through life together as we work.
We Go Through Life Together, Spending Time Regularly
Each Saturday morning, we visit a local coffee shop that we love. It is our standard date. We love talking and visiting. The owner, manager and several servers know us. It is a joy to see them and talk to them as well. They know to expect us each week, unless we go out of town.
I don’t wanna miss it
I don’t wanna look back someday and find
Everything that really mattered
Was right in front of me this whole time
Open up my eyes, Lord
Keep me in the moment just like this
Before the beautiful things we love
Become the beautiful things we missMatthew West
