Thirteen years ago we wrote vows for our wedding on the 4th of July. I thought we had "it" all together. Surely, we knew everything we needed to know.
Ha, ha! We learned a lot in the first decade of marriage. Ten Years later, we had a renewal ceremony, with new vows.
I admit, I am still learning to be a Biblical Bride. I find falling into my old habits and thoughts, not learned from the Bible, or the truly wonderful examples in my own family. For our Thirteenth Anniversary, I have some new vows for my husband.
Thomas, I vow to be sober, to love you, to love our children, to be discreet, chaste, a keeper at home, good, obedient to you, so that the word of God be not blasphemed (from Titus 2:3-5).
Now, Hubby, I have to warn you, I am still human and I may slip up sometimes, but we have an awesome God who is working on me. I want our marriage to be an example of a Heavenly marriage. Something that our children, and Lord willing, our grandchildren can learn from.
I love you! Happy 13th Anniversary!
