It has been 9 months since we celebrated our 20 year marriage anniversary. I call it marriage anniversary because we didn’t have a wedding. 20 years ago I was a bit disappointed to not have a wedding but in reality we could not afford to do that. We were only 20 years old for goodness sake. I did want to experience wearing a wedding dress and taking photos with my bridal party. I thought that was so cool. I would later regret not having a wedding and vowed to celebrate on one of our anniversaries. Well like any other marriage, trouble would shake the household and it didn’t look like we would make it. In year 10, we had decided to get a divorce. I was devastated. I didn’t know what I was going to do. This is crazy. I couldn’t believe this marriage was over. Finally after praying and fasting, The Holy Spirit revealed to me that my marriage was far from over. I thought the Holy Spirit was nuts because this man has made it very clear he is done with me. It would be something like 7 months before we decided to work on this marriage. It had tripped me out that everything I was asking God to do, he did it. Like I saw a miracle happen before my very eyes. This was God’s way of showing me that all I must do is ask it, speak it, believe it and it will be mine. So in 2008, my faith was brand new and my journey began. I guess God said he was sick of me and had to do something to get my attention. It was a set up for me to discover what is meant for me. It is meant for me to be successful in my marriage, my family, my career, my friendships and everything I am anointed to do. I thank God everyday for saving my marriage but most of all showing me that the impossible is possible with him.
January 20, 2017 I got to put on my first ever wedding dress and we celebrated with our friends and family at our formal anniversary vow renewal. It was simply amazing. I always go back and look at the photos and relive the moment all over again. It was worth every dollar spent. I no longer regret not having a wedding 20 years ago. I was clueless to who I was back then and God preserved me for that moment for when I became who I was meant to be. Oh I have more success stories coming up but this one is one of my favorites.
