60 years

I can’t even start to describe the commitment it would take to be married for 60 years. I attended an anniversary party for some friends of mine and it was heart warming to say the least. The drive and dedication to stay with someone that long deserves applause. These days 8 years is the typical length of commitment in a marriage. That’s to say if they get married at all. Seems like the majority of youth now a days have children and live together without their vows. My wife and I have been together for 7 years and there have been some horribly rough spots and I don’t know where we would be without God and prayer. He is the strength and guidance in our marriage. 60 years is totally obtainable through Him who gives us strength. That doesn’t mean that your marriage won’t be tested and thrown into rocks. This just means that through it all you can prevail knowing that there is strength through Him. Psalms 16:8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand. I will not be shaken.
