Our 35th Wedding Anniversary

Our 35th Wedding Anniversary by Wendy L. Macdonald Roses, Memoir, and Poetry

This August 19 is our 35th wedding anniversary. The Bible verse we chose for our special day way back then is also the same verse that blesses us when we continue to practice what it preaches.

For when we find our delight in God first,

we will be delighted in our marriage best.

Someone mentioned their wedding flowers were peach roses, and after almost 35 years of marriage to the husband of my youth, I was prompted to realize something about our favorite Westerland rose-bush in our garden. It’s the same color the roses on our wedding cake were.

It’s funny how something can sit in sight for years and not be visible to those closest to it. I’ve also discovered old things about my husband that seem new again.

He’s still my best friend.

And I’m thankful I delighted in the Lord, for He has given me the desired man of my heart.

Delight yourself in the LORD,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4 NIV

Running the good race. Running the God race.”

~ My husband’s morning note to me today.

The Good Race (My poem in response):

Running this race

Together

No matter the storms

Our love woven with God

Will weather

All the seasons

We find ourselves in

For those who run

The God race

Always win.

My latest six-minute podcasts can be heard here: Walking with Hope. My latest one is regarding a confession I needed to make to my son about my driving.

I’m nosy-to-know what Bible verse or quote you’ve used for a celebration.
