On This Day 37 Years Ago

On this day, April 23, in 1983, Paul and I began our lives together as husband and wife. Paul was 28 years old, and I was 22 years old. The Lord blessed us with a wedding day that was filled with love, laughter, joy, and happiness as we celebrated with family and friends. Right now, it warms my heart thinking about what a fantastic day it was.
This is the fourth year without Paul here to celebrate our wedding anniversary together. Honestly, I wish he was still here, I miss him, and I often wonder what our lives would have been like.
Yet, I know I must face reality and continue my life in the best way I can. I'm thankful for the love and support from family and friends. The Lord is with me now, just as He was on my wedding day. His word in the Bible brings me comfort. As I take time to look up the word comfort in the Concordance of my Bible, I found the following verses, and I would like to share them with you. May you find comfort in these Bible verses as well:
  • "Blessed are those that mourn, they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4
  • "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
  • "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ." 2 Corinthians 1:3-6
  • "God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1
As I reflect on this day, I will take comfort in the memories, I will take comfort in the love of family and friends, and I will take comfort in God's Word.
 In closing, I would like to share this fun photo from our wedding day.
Thank you for visiting my small, humble blog.
With love,
