35th Anniversary

I have been married 35 years today. My husband and I grew up together. He was 15, I was 14 when we started "going steady" the summer of '71. We have been a couple for three quarters of my life. I can't imagine not being his "girl".

Sometimes it has been hard work being married. We have had our moments when it would have been easier for one or both of us to have called it quits. But we persevered and chose to love when it was difficult.

Sometimes being married has been great fun. We have laughed and played together for nearly forty years.

Sometimes being married has been very romantic. The quiet evenings, the tender lovemaking, the passionate sex.

It's been a wild ride. I can't wait to see what the next 35 holds!

So, I have given up Facebook for Lent. I obviously spend too much time there! It has been a week and a half and I still find myself wondering what to do with myself. I no longer know what's going on in the lives of my friends and distant family. It's as if I've been sent to a desert island.

The up side is that my "fast" has produced the desired effect. I am drawing closer to my Saviour. I pray more often. I read God's Word more often. I listen to Him more often. It has made me ponder my FB future. On the one hand, I don't want to go back to the continuous notifications and postings. On the other hand, I do want to keep up with my friends and family.

Maybe resurrecting my blog will help me sort it out.
