THANKFUL Thursday ~ Marriage

Lynn is hosting this month for TT so please go here & join in and share your Thankful Hearts! Lynn was sharing about a couple who just celebrated 50 years! WOW ~ what a blessing !! I thought I would continue on with that theme

I just celebrated 20 years with my DH this past May and I am sooo Thankful ~ soo very blessed! We have had your typical marriage with your up and downs for sure! We have learned over these past 20 years that God is ALWAYS @ work in us individually as well as working in our marriage and family! HE is our Foundation and without HIM we would not be where we are today! Knowing that HE is always working keeps us pliable ~ moldable! It scares me when people think God has done all HE can do in them! He loves us sooo much and doesn't EVER leave us alone ! He LONGS to teach us, grow us and make us more like HIM! Thank you Lord

I am so thankful that HE has taught us that we are a team! We work together, we pray hard and for each other, we are each others BEST FRIEND and no one else can have that place! Thank you Lord

I am so thankful that we have learned about Boundaries in Marriage! Boundaries with kids! Boundaries with family members :) Boundaries in Friendships! Boundaries @ work! When Boundaries are set "IN LOVE" ...they will save soooo much Strife! Thank you Lord

I am sooo thankful to know that God made Brian Just.For.ME ♥ ♥ ♥ I learned this at a conference we went to one weekend....He made your spouse too! Isn't that awesome! Only YOUR Spouse can Love you the way they do! Care for you the way they do! Know you the way they do!! Thank you Lord

What are you thankful for in your Marriage??

I love good marriage stories, congratulations! I am so thankful for my wife married me 28 years ago, being married to your best friend is awesome!


Congrats on your 20 years together. I thank God every single day for our marriage. I never heard it put that way though...made just for me. I love it.


God bless you both!!


I, too am thankful for a wonderful marriage!


Oh Loren I LOVED this post. 20 years is WONDERFUL...such a cute couple you make. Whatever in the world I would do without my hubby of 35 years I never want to imagine. You are soo right. No one will ever know me and love me quite like he does. How truly blessed by God it makes me feel. HUGS, Debbie

Congratulations! Every year together is another victory for the sanctity of marriage. What I'm thankful for? Companionship. Good post.


When a couple shares that kind of unity that comes from His love, it truly is able to withstand any kinds of storm. It's sad that many marriages are dissolving, one by one. So thankful for the Lord's hold on my hubby and I too. Glory be to Him! Have a great day sister and God bless.


Loren, once again, this is beautiful and very inspiring. And it always amazes me how you and I think alike. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am very thankful for my marriage/best friendship of almost 28 years. I did mention in my post being thankful for my husband's friendshipe, but I didn't write as beautifully as you! Thank you again!

Congrats on 20 years!

Sassy Granny ...

What an absolutely darling couple. 20 years looks good on you!!

My thankfulness in marriage? I have to say endurance. First and last it's been an enabling of God; but it's allowed for much humor, for forgiveness, for stability.

I'm so glad marriage was and is God's idea. Had it been mine, it might not have fared to well ....



P.S. Honest ... my security word here is "sascan". And so she can!


Beautifully said ... congratulations on 20 years!!!



I am thankful for my hubby who accepts me for whom I am every single day whether it be a good day or a bad one, his love is always unconditional. Truly a man after God's own heart.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat


Congratulitons on 20 years!!! I too am thanful for my marriage and the man God made just for me! I thank Him everyday and ask that He help me be the best and most supporting wife I can be!


Beautiful message! Handsome photo! Congratulations on 20 years! We officially make 20 in Sept! I am thankful for EVERY part of my covenant with my hubby. I tell him daily he is GOD's special gift to me. He says the same.

May the Hand of GOD always be with you and your husband.

God bless you.
