Silly Anniversary

To prove that we understand (and practice what we preach) that laughter is a big part of making our marriage work...another eleven points to observe on our big day.

Acting your age is overrated; having fun together isn't!
Nothing says I love you like putting down the toilet seat.
Nobody likes to clean those toilets, but somebody's got to do it!
If you smell it, you change it (works with diapers, garbage, etc.)
Vacuuming is men's work (it's a power tool, right?)
Empty ice trays do not a happy marriage make.
Road trips aren't for sissies.("I thought you said you had looked at the map?")
Spice is nice.
Another year is always worth celebrating! (it's been fourteen! can you believe we were only eleven when we got married?!)
Running out of gas doesn't really ruin the engine, but it might ruin the evening.
Yelling is no good, unless it is at a sporting event on on a roller coaster! Yahooooo!

Happy Anniversary

Today is my anniversary! In honor of fourteen years (wow! We can't be old enough for that!,)I give you an acrostic:

Always be gentle, because a soft answer turns away wrath.
Never hold grudges, because love keeps no record of wrongs.
Never lie, because love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth.
Invest time into your marriage, because it was created by God for His glory and for your good.
Value your husband, because he was made in God's image.
Encourage your husband, so that he need not find praise elsewhere.
Respect him, because God has given him the difficult job of leadership in your home.
Say the words, because we all need to hear, "I love you."
Always forgive, because Christ has offered forgiveness to you.
Rejoice in his successes, because He was gifted by God.
Yield your heart to God first, then you will be ready to take your place beside our husband.
