27th & 28th, was our 18th year wedding anniversary for both traditional & church. We talked about what people said about our marriage and us because of our huge differences; Tribe, religion, shape, background and personalities. We talked about each other flaws and on to improve on it.
My name in my dialect means, I WILL NOT FALL FROM PEOPLE'S MOUTH!'(meaning whatever negative things people say about me, will never hurt me and my blessings from GOD).The things that had been said alone about our marriage by both friends and family, would have seen our marriage fall apart! BUT GOD IN HIS INFINITE MERCY SAW US THROUGH THE STORMY WATERS! All GLORY to HIM.
This is a moment of celebration, not venting, because we have come a long way. Marriage is NOT easy. It takes hard work and sacrifices on both ends. Supportive friends and family makes the journey less tedious. And the presence of GOD keeps it peaceful.
