17 Years....Happy Aniversary









17 years...who what have thought it would have lasted this long?

No One I think.

I think with my devout devotion to I never wanted to get a divorce since my Mom had 4,i think that  had something to do with it.

Was this the happiest day of my life?

NO

I was sick as a dog.  I was with pregnant with Christopher and morning sickness was not kind to me.

Michael and I got Married just 3 weeks after we announced we were going to get married.

My Mom was less then Happy...she wasn't ready to be a grandma....and suggested an abortion would be the best thing.

The preacher said we either get married or give the child up for adoption.

Adoption is something I did not want to do either.


Hence, Michael and I got Married.


I wore a borrowed brides maids dress, borrowed jewelery, and shoes.
My husband bought a tie. (this is one and only of a hand full of times I have seen him wear a tie and TUCK HIS SHIRT IN...the tie was returned after the wedding..)

My own Mom  said she was not going to attend because she did not have anything to wear....but yet she did attend and she was the only one wearing white.  I have not included the pic of my Mom and Us, she was always against our Union

my flowers for the whole wedding cost 30 dollars.

the reception was potluck.  I could not even eat a bite. Being so sick, most of my time was spent in the bathroom trying to throw up the banana I had for breakfast.


our pictures were done by a friend, my eyes are squinty most of the time from puking between pics...

we never even exchanged rings....I wore his mother ring that Seb gave to Constance (it has since been pawned to pay for bills...)

we never had a Honeymoon..and after 3 kids not even a family vacation....


but here we are still 17 years later.

I think the best part of the wedding when "Rushing Wind" A song by Keith Green was sung.



"Rushing wind blow through this temple,

Blowing out the dust within,

Come and breathe you breath upon me,

I've been born again.


Holy spirit, I surrender, take me where you want to go,

Plant me by your living water,

Plant me deep so I can grow.


Jesus, you're the one, who sets my spirit free,

Use me lord, glorify, your holy name through me.


Separate me from this world lord.

Sanctify my life for you.

Daily change me to your image,

Help me bear good fruit.


Every day you're drawing closer.

Trials come to test my faith.

But when all is said and done lord,

You know, it was worth the wait.


Jesus, you're the one, who set my spirit free,

Use me lord, glorify, your holy name through me.

Rushing wind blow through this temple,

Blowing out the dust within,

Come and breathe you breath upon me,

For I've been born again."

I have seen alot of big weddings and engagements and shortly after they are divorced....

but here we still stand!!! 

"I am so in love with you Honey even though we don't have a lot of money.."

Yes its true, I am so Happy to be stuck with You..."
