Thankful Thursday: Anniversary Edition

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”
 
~A.A. Milne


I've known him exactly half of my life. Soon, life with him will overtake life without him. Truth be told, it's hard to remember when he wasn't here. Those years are dim images dusty with cobwebs and time. The older I become, the further they fade away.

Today marks 21 years of cleaving to each other, of adhering firmly and closely or loyally and unwaveringly (source).  Our marriage is marked by God's indelible grace and His unending goodness. As I contemplate these decades together, I'm thankful for:

~laughing together
~crying together
~worshipping together
~loving together
~grieving together
~working together
~traveling together
~cooking together
~eating together
~walking together
~parenting together
~growing older together
~praying together
~praying for each other
~talking to each other
~listening to each other
~serving each other
~encouraging each other
~loving each other
~supporting each other
~being sure of each other

These are the making of a marriage, days of mundane tasks strung together into a lifetime. As the Lord continues to weave us into one, I pray the garment He sews will be a glorious array of His splendor that draws others to Himself.
