A Special January Day


Today is a very special day in our lives. Thirty eight years ago today I walked down the aisle to join the man-of-my-dreams and become his wife. Oh, the dreams we had and the things we planned to do. We accomplished some of them and others may still happen in the future. Some of our dreams and plans would never become reality because God took us to places we never dreamed possible. Others were, perhaps, the dreams of youth that would be rethought and improved and enhanced and would take on new meaning. 'His love is perfected in us(I John 4: 12), a Bible verse that was very special to us, was the theme of our wedding. It was our desire then and it has been our prayer through the years we have walked through life together. We want it to be true through the years ahead. We are blessed. Every day.

Because my dear little mother is experiencing some health issues we’ve chosen not to go far from home this weekend. We are officially ‘away from home’ to the general public but our family knows that we are doing things close to home and spending nights at our favorite Bed and Breakfast – home! Early next week I’ll share our adventures. Until then, I’m just spending time with my sweetheart – enjoying the gift of time together. What a treasure!


  1. Happy Happy Anniversary! What a special and sweet photograph.
    I hope your Mom is doing better and you have a beautiful weekend.

  2. Enjoy your very special weekend! Happy Anniversary!

  3. Oh so beautiful and sweet, Adrienne you are blessed with that loooong years. 38 yrs is not a joke, you really had experienced a lot and became victorious with the help of the Almighty. I thank God for you. I'm blessed of your blog.
    Blessings and more to come!

  4. Happy Anniversary, dear friend. Congratulations on such a happy and long marriage.

    I do hope your mom is feeling better. I know you take such care with her.

  5. Happy Anniversary to both of you. How wonderful that you have had so many years of happiness together! I pray you will have many more. WHat a handsome couple you were and the years have been kind. Love keeps us young!

  6. Congratulations - there is no way to explain to someone who hasn't been married "forever" what a joy it is to be in such a relationship. There is so much trust, faith, just knowing that can't be explained. I hope your weekend is truly blessed...marlene
