Tonight Jason and I were able to attend our church's annual sweetheart dinner. We had great food and wonderful fellowship with many other married couples from our church. AND we were asked to speak about our marriage to the entire group.
We were surprised they asked us, and we were a little bit confused as to what we could possible share with all of these people who had been married for much much longer than us. But it was great to sit down together and reflect on the last 7 months of our lives and our time together.
Two other couples shared as well. Mark and Denise have been married for 28 years, and Art and Marilyn for 50. They are both lovely couples, and we had a great time talking to them as well as hearing about their marriages.
The verse we shared tonight (which happened to be the same verse as Art and Marilyn) was Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Have a happy Valentines' Day!
