Marriage Commitment

 

Walking Through Life Together
 
What does a vow mean to this world anymore?
 
Do we even know what the word means?
 
Being committed is good, as long as it is working for me!
 
I just want to share my heart about something that has,
touched almost everyone of us,
Divorce in America is ramped.
Growing up as a child from the divorce factor.
 
I will know longer kid myself;
I was broken and grieved!
A child with no Daddy...
 
One of the greatest wounds for any human being
Is rejection!
 
One thing I have learned in this life is this;
Marriage is a gift from God,
I am just so sorry and sad so many
Women and Men
Have been wounded and hurt from the broken vows.
From either their parents, or their own broken marriage vows.
Everyone suffers when a vow is broken.
This post is not about placing blame, but rather to say;
I am sorry for all the pain and sorrow it has cost
each and everyone of us.
 
But we have hope;
He has come to heal the broken hearted!
 
This week we will be celebrating 31 years of our marriage vows!
 
May we have many more years together.
But I want to encourage each and everyone of you.
Take being married as one of the most important positions
in this life.
 
It is work, but well worth every kind word,
 And every walk you take while holding hands.
Every kiss before you sleep.
Every good memory you hold.
 
Be committed to YOUR marriage!
 
Blessings,
Roxy

  5. Well said Roxy.....sadly so many couples give up and give in to divorce because it's easier than working on their marriage. So sad for all concerned....especially the children! Happy Anniversary....my dear hubby and I celebrate our 25th in October.

  7. Hi Roxy! Happy Anniversary! You and your husband have such a beautiful commitment to your vows. So inspiring!

    You are right, there is a lot of divorce in the world, and it really is sad. Especially when children are involved. I was so fortunate to live with both of my parents, who were married for 59 years.

    i hope you will celebrate well!

  9. I remember how surprised I, was when my children were at school, at the number of children coming from divorced parents. Very few came from families were mum and dad were still together. very sad for all involved.

    Happy anniversary to you and your husband. We celebrate our wedding anniversary just after Christmas and have been together for 28 years, through the good and the bad.

    Blessing for the coming week

  11. Roxy and Danny,
    Congratulations on 31 years!! You two are so, so special and dear to me. I haven't got the words to say to you and Danny how much I love you and how special your lives are to me. Thank you for being such a Godly example to my life and being a voice that brings wisdom and truth in this dark world. You are such a blessing. "sniff sniff" Trying not to cry.

    Loving you and sending you both my warmest wishes!
