One September Day

Guy Meets Girl


I have a special friend, her name is Lynnette. I would like you to stop by and visit her sometime. She is celebrating something special, and you can read about it by clicking here.
She hosts this weekly Blog event, that I make a point to participate in when I can.
Her idea is for others to share their Special Memories, moments or events with one another.
Every Wednesday, you can also participate in the Walk down Memory Lane , in Wednesday's Walk.

Here is My memory for the week:

There is a story that goes like this..
Girl meets guy. Girl thinks guy is nice. Guy thinks girl is nice.
Hours spent in long conversations about beliefs, ideals, and their future -

lead to a life long commitment .....
Now 20 years strong.

I never imagined how a blind date, 21 years ago would shape, and re-shape the rest of my life.
God knew. And, I cannot be more thankful that He was in control, and not me.
God's ways are higher, broader, and bigger than we can ever think to even imagine.
And this commitment made between this guy and girl - now 20 years ago today -
has shaped my life to exactly what God wanted for us both.
Time goes so quickly- don't we all know.

As my husband and I celebrate our 20th Anniversary today, I am blogging about all that he means to me, and more.

Dan is the perfect other-half for me.
He is patient, True - to - His word,
Self-sacrificing in a way that I have never seen.
An awesome, loving, and giving father.
My husband is genuine - through and through.
His sense of humor brings a much needed balance to our home.
He makes our love a priority.
He Loves the Lord with all His heart.
He is one of the hardest working men I know.
My husband supports my strengths, and helps me with my weaknesses.
He gives me the encouragement to be a better mom, and appreciates me as his wife.
He is my perfect other half - In so many ways.

In a world where there is a lot of heart-break, and lack of commitment, I thank the Lord for this blessing of 20 years with a man that loves me,, and pray that I will be the wife that the Lord wants me to be.
Dan and I have a long story behind 20 years of marriage. Hills, valleys, and peaks, but it is only the foundation of our relationship that keeps us focused on each other, rather than ourselves.
20 years - To God Be the Glory - Great Things He hath done.

    How beautiful September! I think we've mentioned this to each other - my husband and I also met on a blind date. By God's grace - in 20 years we will be going just as strong as you two are. I know that your story, God's story would never have been written if you two were never set up to meet! I know you look at your children and see what has become of just two people falling in love! Thanks for sharing this today!

    I'm trying to figure out how I missed this? Hmmmm...well, here I am to read it. (and on to your favorite photo next). 20 years is a long time. I've been married 20 years too. (21 in December) We are blessed.

    My phone isn't working (don't know why) - so I missed your call when I was sitting right here. I'm going to call you back in a few minutes okay.

    Love ya.
    Lynnette

    I hope you had a wonderful anniversary! Congrats on 20 years of marriage! I think it's awesome that even after 20 years you are still praying that you will be the wife God wants you to be.
