Seven Years Today!

For the month of November, I have some friends thinking of one thing they are thankful for everyday of the month.  I thought I'd join in! 

Today, November 1st, I am thankful for Marriage.  Today is Mike's and my seventh anniversary...  and it's been a great seven years!

"Where there is love, there are always miracles."

Thanks for the first seven years, Mike – you make me smile every day. I love you.

A reading from our wedding...  Romans 12:9-18:
"Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; do not claim to be wiser than you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all."
