Years ago, my fairy tale came true, the day I walked down the aisle to the man of my dreams. When you are young and the newness of marriage still sparkles in all it’s glory, many husbands and wives think that problems will never come their way. At least that’s what I thought, “No not us,” I scoffed, we will be the ones living in the quaint little house with the white picket fence, living the perfect life. Little did we know that the vows we spoke on September 26th, 1992, would be put to the test time and time again.
Especially when the word, cancer, decided to take up residence and make it self at home inside the marriage we thought was unshakable.
When I heard that awful word I knew I had a choice, I could either give up and wallow in self pity, or I could claim victory in Jesus name.
During this time God spoke to me and He said…”Give me the glory through it all. Let my light shine in you so that they may see who I really am.”
Today I am so honored to be participating in the 31 Days to a Better Marriage Series. For more of, In Sickness and in Health, Respecting Your Husband Through Cancer, please stop by the, Alabaster Jar.
All for Him,
