When The Wrong One Is The Right One

Today is my wedding anniversary, and in honor of the love of my life, I wanted to share a little with y'all, my virtual besties

Our marriage never should have worked out. Statistically, we shouldn't have beat the odds. You see, my husband was from the wrong side of the tracks marrying a girl, that, let's just say, could have been Sandra Dee. Yep, we should have been doomed from the start. But here's the really cool part, God always has a plan, and He has the power to turn all things into good for His glory. Do I hear an Amen! We should have been doomed from the get go, but God sees the WHOLE picture. He doesn't see obstacles the same way we do, he sees into our souls and He knows EXACTLY what we need. Do I hear another Amen?!



Twenty three years ago, God put a miraculous plan into action and it began with two polar opposite humans saying 'I do' before a justice of the peace. It wasn't all fairy dust and unicorns, let me tell you, but God doesn't care about easy. God put two opposites together on the spin cycle in the washer and beat out our weaknesses that we never could have accomplished alone. He took two diamonds in the rough and used them to smooth out the lumps and bumps of each other. In other words, he turned all the bad to His good. That's just what He does. 



God knew exactly what would be in store for us if we made it through the tough years. He knew the beauty of this little farm He brought us to and how much we'd enjoy it all if we could just make it through all the bumps in the road. He knew that we'd finally get it that 'less really is more'. I am so thank-full that I serve an ALL knowing God!


I'm so grateful for this man that God saw was made for me. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!
