April Anniversaries

April 2, 2012

in the generous life

I totally forgot!

We have two winners for the “Making Your Room Special” Contest.  Angel and Christina were the 3rd and 15th posters (I used Random.org) and will each receive a free CD of Marriage Bed Vol 1. <– You can purchase a CD at this link if you want one and didn’t win. Thanks Ang, for the free CDs.

AND

It’s time to pray for generous wives that have an April anniversary. If you were married in April, please leave as a comment to this post your names, wedding date, how long you’ve been married and something you love about your husband.

For example: (this is mine from January)

Paul & Lori
January 18th (27 years)
My husband loves adventure.  He makes me laugh and keeps me young.

Let’s be a praying community and lift up these gals and their April marriages.  

Let marriage be held in honor among all…  Hebrews 13:4a   ESV

My husband is very geneous. He’s also not very picky about how clean the house is, or how often I iron or don’t iron his shirts:)

My husband is literally the hardest worker I know, very selfless, and always gives me the benefit of the doubt. I could do well to learn a lot from him…I’m very lucky :-D!

I love how my husband tells me I’m beautiful even after four term pregnancies have resulted in a body that is considerably less attractive than it was when we married. I love how he dotes on me and makes me feel special. I especially love seeing him goo-goo at our littlest baby (2 months) and hang out with the older three children. And I appreciate how he is willing to work hard and be responsible for the provision for our family – he doesn’t lose hope even when times are tough. He encourages me when I am feeling low.

This will be our first anniversary so… 1 year!!
If I start listing the things I love about my husband I’ll never stop so I’ll just say the first three that come to mind – he’s patient, so patient. He knows me, truly knows me, and often reads my mind. He takes the lead spiritually in our relationship, and he does it with quiet and wise determination. I’m so excited to be celebrating our first amazing year of marriage!!

Tony & Angela, married 27 years on April 19th. I love that Tony loves the LORD and trys so hard to be a spiritual leader even when he himself was not taught how and that he loves me even when I’m not so lovable. We dated 6 yr’s before marrying so really we’ve been together 33yr’s. We have 4 children, and forgiveness and laughter mixed with our faith have paved our paths, not always easy or trouble free yet so blessed and guided with our Saviors mercy and grace.<3

My husband can be so silly, which works well because I am often too serious. I am still learning to be silly myself but having him definitely helps.

My husband makes me laugh and he loves to hear me laugh. My husband is willing to try anything once! He remembers me in prayer, with all my issues at work. He sends me scripture text messages and calls me during the day. He has really been there supporting my parents and myself since my sister died last year. I love him and I thank God for him daily.

My husband and I waited for a LONG time to find each other. We were 39 and 40 when we finally got married! He was worth every day I waited, every prayer I prayed, every tear I shed, and every lonely night. I praise God that he is such a great husband. He is so helpful around the house, and is very thoughtful & intentional about spending time with me and letting me know he thinks I’m special. I love cuddling and praying with him each night!

My husband has always strived to do the best for our family. Through 3 pregnancies, countless kidney stones, and every challenge we face, he has grown more mature and is dedicating himself to be the husband and father that God designed him to be. He helps encourage me to be a better wife and mother. Marriage has not come easily for us, but in the last year, we have grown more in love, closer than ever, and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him.

I want to thank you Lori, and your husband, Paul, for being such an inspiration to growing strong marriages. My husband and I are definitely benefiting from your ministry. Thank you!

Jay has been a very supportive, loving husband who strives to do his best for his family. He makes me laugh and he helps to lift me when I am down, he supports me on any decisions that we have to make for our future and our family. He is a fun loving, very caring, very sweet person. I know he loves me as he always says he loves me more than I love him. God has blessed me with a wonderful man cares about my ideas and dreams. He inspires me spiritually. He is a blessing. I love him so much. 7 years is an awesome time for 2 people to reach a certain threshold in the journey of marriage together.

He loves me despite my immaturity and selfishness. He cooks (I do not!). He is a Christian who longs to glorify God through music (He plays the guitar in church!). He makes me laugh!

Praising God for almost a year since we had our union!
