Why Dan Married Elaine

Happy 44th Anniversary to us!

I laughed when I learned "food" was the 44th anniversary gift. Afterall,  food brought Dan and I together and food keeps us together.

 Years ago I asked Dan why he married me. With a smile, he  joked, "You are the only woman I've ever met who can eat more than me!" He's right.

 I accepted his first dinner invitation only because I was hungry. As a vain and unwise single woman, I spent my paycheck on clothes and left none for food. When Dan  asked me to dinner. I jumped at the opportunity to be freely fed. Not trying to impress, I did eat more than Dan that night. It was love at first bite! Sorry, I couldn't resist the corn.

Dan and I love to eat. We're good at it. We enjoy fine restaurants, Nathan's hot dogs, and everything in between.

Food brought us together, but what keeps us together? Food!

 Jesus said
 "I am the living bread that came down from Heaven. 
Anyone who eats this bread will live forever,
 and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh."
 John 6:51 (NLT)

 Over 44 years Jesus has held us and fed us, comforted us and brought us back together during the difficult times.  Without Jesus (the living bread) our marriage is weak and sick and starving. With Jesus, we thrive!

Does your marriage need a booster shot? Feed on His Word. Do what Jesus tells you to do and nurse your way  to a healthy marriage. 

A good dose of Jesus brings a splash of serenity on any day!
