Blended family miracles do happen.

Our 36th Wedding anniversary was yesterday.My Armenian knight and Me had a peaceful yummy
dinner with a lovely view.36 blessed years of love.Our marriage is so easy now and  truly full of laughter.
Paul is the one I give all the credit to for our long love affair.He has always been patient,mature and fun.Oh yes,We have had Our arguments and fought for what We thought was right but love always won in the end.
I was a young woman of 24 at the time,never had been married and had no children.He on the other hand was 33 and had been divorced with custody of two little girls 2 and 5. I 'm saying this only to encourage other young women (if any readers are young : / ) that blended families can work out and not just for the  benefit of others but for you too.Yes, it's a long hard road at times because you didn't fall in love with His children,You fell in love with Him,but with time and  an attitude of meekness You will fall in love with His children too.Now I love them more than words can express and I have for a long long time.You never really know exactly when it happens,it happens over time when your not looking.We went on to have 2 more girls.All 4 girls are miracles in My eyes,My heart is so full.  With patience ,You can have more amazing wonderful Grandchildren that You will love like crazy and that love will be given back to You so easily it just might surprise You. Thank You Lord and  Paul.

Happy Anniversary. I know Prudence will be so disappointed that she missed your special day. I can just hear her now; "Auntie Denise, you have a real special day and eat lots of cake". What can I say? She's my teddy bear.

Hugs

Happy Anniversary ♥

You look fantastic, Denise. And what a beautiful share today about your lives together, and the truth about how many families come together....and it's all under the canopy of GOD's love for one another.

Good morning beautiful Denise! I am so happy to know you came to my other "quiet" blog, where I will have no photos, but rather share my poetry writing journey. Thank you for commenting on the concentric circles; yes, I agree with you that the more people accept the changes or rather the cycle of life, the more they may be able to cope with the fact that there is something greater than us. I had such a great summer taking this poetry class that has taught me so much about my writing the process of writing poetry and most of all, about myself as a creator made in the image of God.

BLESS YOU! Anita

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
