Half Of My Life With My Better Half

Today, Saturday, May 28th, 2011, Leona and I are celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary!

How about that look in my eye?  Haha, you sly dog, you.

I was almost 23 when I married Leona.  That was  23 years ago.  Give or take a few months, I’ve lived half of my life married to Leona, and I can honestly say that the second half has been better than the first half. 🙂

So how’d we do it?  What’s the secret?

It’s not magic.

It’s not a feeling.

It’s not luck.

It’s a covenant commitment.  Marriage is a covenant commitment between a Man, a Woman and God for life.  

When it seems like more curse than magic.

When it doesn’t feel good.

When it looks like bad luck.

A covenant commitment that we work on every day creates a love that feels like magic and makes us feel like the luckiest people in the world.

Happy Anniversary, Leona!  I love you more today than I did on that special day.

I’m thankful that you’re even more beautiful now, and that I still have that sly look in my eye….
