6 YEARS AND GOING STRONG

April 24, 2007

This week we celebrated our wedding anniversary,sure this is a yearly event that you don’t have to actually make a deal out of; but, I truly cherish this marriage. I intend to celebrate it every year, clear up to ????? How many years do we have?, only the good lord knows how many days, years we have together. The final year may be tomorrow, I don’t know, but I will say that it was blessed by God.

It has been a long hard road to this life of mine. When I married the first time, in my mind it was forever, after all we were childhood sweethearts! But to do this we first must grow up and mature. Neither of us were capable of a lifetime of ups and downs and all that life will hand you. The day it ended I thought I had died. Everything I believed died with it. I ranted and raved and cried to God, “Why me, what have I done that was sooo terrible?!” I think I did that for almost all of the 19 years that I was by myself. I think back now how in the world did I raise my 3 children and keep my sanity. I didn’t—God kept me, held me up, wiped my tears, heard my prayers, my pleas for relief. I thought that God had forgotten me.

It wasn’t until my children were raised and on their own that God led me to meet the man who would change my life totally. I would have never picked him out by myself, but God saw that our hearts would be good together. And so it has been, I have the complete knowledge that this man loves me from the bottom of his heart, I do believe he would move mountains for me. I feel the same about him. Loving someone isn’t just about feelings but it is about putting that person into your heart, soul, and mind. The most important thing for a marriage I feel is to be totally dependent on God first. We made a prayer that God will always rule our marriage and we pray about things, and our families. I am so blessed. thank you God for giving me a second chance.

HE LIVES

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.

Had no army, yet kings feared Him.

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.

He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

We all get the itching to go somewhere, do something but what? That is where we were a few days ago. So we decided to go visit a fort that we had heard about. We picked up my parents and off we went. What a surprise. We went to Fort Miles in Lewis Delaware. It is on the coast and it was in use during the 1940-45 war. The barracks and the guns are open to the public, you are free to wander around and look. It is an awesome sight, the bunkers are built into the dunes, they are so well hidden that it is hard to see them. My dad served in the war and he told me that he well remembers the guns. This picture was taken on top of the highest bunker, (information says that this is the highest point from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras) looking towards the Atlantic Ocean. If you look very carefully at the picture you can spot another bunker,(look close) and see that gun barrel sticking out of it. I can just picture the soldiers scanning the ocean looking for a German Sub, with the guns ready to fire.

All up and down the coast there are cement bunkers placed on the beaches, this is were the spotters were deployed to watch over the ocean. I have always seen these bunkers but not until now have I realized their significance and how much I have taken my freedom for granted. Not any more. You should really take in this Fort. There will be an re-enactment on April 28, it will be very informative.
