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
Happy anniversary! I love the scripture you shared from Ecclesiastes 4. With the Lord as our third strand it makes marriage much more likely to succeed and thrive. Cliff and I have been married for over 36 years. ~ Kathryn kathrynhughes-author.com

Lobster!!! I live maine lobster. Been forever since I’ve had those!!!! And congrats on 31 years. A daily walk. Enjoy the moments. Karen and I celebrate 40 in august. Happy anniversary! Two are better than one!!!
Thank you!!! Congrats on your upcoming anniversary too! Yes, lobster is amazing, especially in Maine
This is such sweet goodness! Happy Anniversary.
Happy Anniversary, Daniel and Rebecca! My bride and I are headed for 32 this coming August.
Fun fact: Did you know that in the late 1700s prisoners in Massachusetts’ jails were restricted from eating lobster MORE than three times per week!? Apparently, entrepreneurial families of the incarcerated would bring them lobster every day, so the magistrates said they could not do that so often! 😁
Another fun fact, a little farther north around the south coast of Maine, in late July or early August, lobster molt! I didn’t know that either until we were there for a vacation. The newly shelled lobsters have a soft-shell that you can peel with your fingers, and the meat is juicier and more flavorful than usual. But they are too fragile to send by truck or train, so you can only get them ON THE COAST! Try Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster Company in South Freeport next time you’re up that way! Anita’s favorite restaurant on the east coast. c.a.
Thank you for sharing the fun facts! Main lobster is amazing! We will have to go to Freeport next time!
Happy Anniversary to you all in August!
Daniel actually got me some more seafood to make tomorrow but we know it won’t be as good as Maine Lobster. I will enjoy it anyway
Hmm, you might not want to try soft-shelled lobster, then. It spoils your taste buds for anything less! 😊
But I still enjoy lobsters anytime.
I’m not familiar with soft shelled lobster, but the kind we had in Ogunquit ME seemed softer and better than I have ever had. I just don’t remember it being called soft shelled. They were big and bright and came straight of the ocean that day. The restaurant that we went to had it’s own dock that they brought directly into the restaurant. It was so tasty
I will wish you a Happy Anniversary a
day ahead of time. Hope you two have many more to come. I love that you spend time in the coffee shop! Beautiful things indeed! 💜
Thank you Renee! God bless you!
Happy anniversary! 🙂
