Since I wrote today's devotion, Lynn and I have been married 49 1/2 years! After I showed the devotion to Lynn (before I submitted it) he started cleaning up his whiskers, and now I really miss them! But that's my sweet Lynn for you. He is such a caring, loving, and thoughtful man. I am very blessed!
When we were dating I prayed for help making the right decision in marrying, because I knew it would be for a lifetime. Our marriage is definitely "made in Heaven," and we both feel so blessed to have found each other. I think our best advise to newlyweds is have respect and commitment. There will be highs and lows in a marriage, but know that you are committed to the vows you've made. Pray for each other and even as the years go by, hug every day and give each other a kiss before you leave for work and when you get home. God's blessings on you all!

“My husband’s grandmother, Nan, will be 92 this year. We talk to her every day. She is the reason I read The Upper Room daily devotional. For years, she has mailed these devotionals to every member of her family. Thank you, Upper Room, for working every day to contribute to so many lives.” Pass along the gift of faith; give a gift subscription.
