20 years

20110629-060711.jpgToday my brother and his wife celebrate 20 years of marriage. I cannot express how much I admire and appreciate their commitment to God, each other, and their family. In a day of rampant divorce, here stands a shining example that says a lifelong marriage is not only possible, but very much worth it.

Having been married for 10 years once before, and then watching it end in divorce, I know that the past 20 years haven’t been easy. An enduring marriage takes a lot of love, patience, pride swallowing, and hard work — from the husband and the wife.

What my brother and sister-in-law have accomplished does seem rare today. That’s why I’m taking a moment to recognize and honor them. They are best friends and enjoy doing life together. No adventure is too big for them.

Happy 20 years, Jim & April!
