A couple of months ago, we had a power surge that fried many of our electronics, one of which was an old CD/radio/cassette player. I know, right. Who even owns cassettes anymore??
Um, well, we do actually.
But that is not the point of this story. So, the speakers for the CD player died, and we are trying to find some new ones, which is not as easy as going to Walmart. It is a REALLY old CD player.
How old you may ask? Well, hubbie gave it to me on Valentine's Day my freshman year in college, in 1998. Yeah, 1998.
Thinking back on that day got me to thinking back on us.
We began dating our junior year in high school, 1996 to be exact. Whoa, that makes me feel old! This January will mark 17 years that we have been together.
You see, many people never thought we'd make it. Quite a few didn't think he would make it period, but especially not US.
And, not that we have 'made it'.
But, thus far the Lord has helped us.
God is so awesome, and to be sure, He is the reason we are together. He has saved us from ourselves more times than we can count. He has renewed, refreshed and resurrected our love and our marriage. The Lord is our sustenance; He is our strength. He is very literally the glue that holds us together.
There is no other explanation.
He is our Ebenezer.
