So, I ask you to celebrate with us. And I share this from an entry ten years ago:
What convinced you the most in your choice of a spouse?
And I ask you to please go and read my tribute to my husband: This is Dedicated to the One I Love - A Working Man. (Keep in mind it was written before he found Christ.)
Last year, being our thirtieth, Pete bought me an anniversary ring for my right hand. (The only jewelry he's ever bought. I had Mama's rings Daddy had given her when we married and I wanted to use them. I'm not a big jewelry person, so it was never on my gift list.) He hinted he might get me one. And I plainly told him that if he did, all that mattered to me was that he pick it out himself. I wanted his taste, as I respect his taste in all things.
Our anniversary fell on a Wednesday, the second Wednesday of the month, which is the Business Meeting and Birthday Fellowship at the church. We have a business meeting and then afterward, everyone with a birthday or anniversary comes up front for the congregation to sing to and afterward we all adjourn to the Fellowship Hall for cake and ice cream.
We both wanted to be there to celebrate our day with them, especially since it fell on the exact date. But when they called us up front, Pete had a surprise worked out for me. He pulled out my anniversary ring and presented it to me in front of the church. In front of our brothers and sisters in Christ. It was beautiful. And special. And just another reason I've managed to love this man all these years through everything life could throw at us.
What is your most memorable anniversary and why?
