Plenty of Reasons...

I know I promised 14 reasons why I'm glad I'm married, but I just can't come up with anything cutesy, like I wanted to. I can come up with plenty of reasons: Samuel, Daniel, David, Anna Kathryn, a life-long companion, in-laws, love, etc... Maybe when I get some time to just sit, and think about it I will come up with something cute, until then, if you are married, send me some of your reasons why you love being married!!
One of our youth from our first church got married a couple of weekends ago.
She isn't the first one to get married by any means, but it did make me think about the example I set for others. I hope when people look at my marriage they see love, commitment, fun, satisfaction, forgiveness, compromise, and a host of other good things. God ordained marriage. I know there are people that don't agree with me and how I "do" marriage, but I try to be submissive, loving, kind, I try to do what is best for my family, and sometimes the submissive part seems to rub some people the wrong way. I really feel that Stephen has my best interests at heart, just as I have his best interests at heart. It is a two way street for us. God has blessed our marriage, I just pray we are a blessing to Him.

Hey Julie!!!
I got the bday card. You are so sweet to remember. I remembered your bday to, but I am not as good at sending cards. The older I get, the lazier I get. I love you and think about you often. Happy lateeeee birthday. Consider yourself hugged. Your pal, Shelia
