Top 10 Anniversary Confessions

I love how other bloggers inspire me...I read the funniest post this morning by my friend Mr. Chatterbox about his foray into the world of romance novels. His dreams are shattered by the well-meaning editing of his English teacher wife when...well, I won't spoil the read for you:)

But Mr. C. inspired me to post some thoughts on love, particularly those that I had on a wedding anniversary with my Man...and of course, interspersed with a few images of romance...


Top 10 Anniversary Confessions

We have not changedwe have just reverted back to who we were before we tried to impress each other.

Juliet's House

We have not obeyed…we are still trying to figure out who is the Boss.



We have not cherished…unless of course you count the new car, the diamond necklace, the sailboat and all the other tangible, but useless stuff.



We have lied…we never really liked yard work, football, live jazz, liver pate, Speedos or potpourri.

Ahhh, Venice...


We rarely converse…if we really talked about anything serious, we would have to make stuff up, because we are too busy “doing” to talk about it.





We are too busy…if we slow down, we may actually have to relax, which may lead to enjoyment, which may lead to less stress, and we won’t know how to behave.



My hubby's morning present from the garden...


We are not patient…we have not perfected the long-fuse theory, opting for the more conventional “I want it and I want it now” technique.



We have judged… neither of us is as righteous as the other one thinks they are.



We have not loved…we spend our energy worrying about whether we are following the greatest commandment, but forget that among our neighbors and ourselves is our spouse.


But the Best Anniversary Confession:



We have not forgotten why we married…


Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly;  It does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account wrongs suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; (love) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.  I Cor. 13: 4-8

Laurel.  Love Well.
