What Day Is Yours Alone?

Anniversaries are special in a way no other annual celebrations are, for this date belongs to you and your spouse alone. We love looking back over our 33 years together remembering how we celebrated each year on February 24th.

Today we want to share with you a video one of our readers, Jeff Todd, made for his wife, Kathleen. They just celebrated their 20th anniversary on Wednesday. He wrote the song you are about to hear, and we know you will be encouraged as you listen–it’s beautiful.

When it’s finished we invite you to leave a comment telling us your wedding date, including the year. Let’s join together in thanking God for the years He’s given us since we said, “I do.”

And to Jeff and Kathleen – Happy Anniversary – from all of us!

    Our 5th anniversary is tomorrow and we usually go to the Black Hills of SD for the week of our anniversary. This year hpeeved, one of our daughters and her son is visiting, so we will enjoy that instead.

      Happy Anniversary! We’ve never been to the Black Hills, but would love to one day. Enjoy your altered celebration with your daughter. What a blessing to have her near.

  2. Absolutely beautiful song!

    Tiffani and I were married on my 21st birthday – August 28th, 1987. We will celebrate our 25th anniversary on August 28, 2012.

    • I haven’t had enough coffee yet… my bleary eyes didn’t see that I wrote the date twice!

    • Debi Walter says:

      25 years this August? That’s great!!! Congratulations, Jason and Tiffani! So glad we have had the privilege to get to know you both recently. And I didn’t even notice you posted the date twice–I guess I haven’t had enough caffeine this morning either. Maybe I shouldn’t be commenting on reader’s responses yet. LOL.

    Tom and I have been married for 17 years ~ January 21, 1995. God gave me my one and only and my heart’s desire that day and forever more. ❤❤ I am so thankful to God for my sweet husband.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary. We were married April 12, 2002. It’s been a challenging ride, full of ups and downs, and we are still together by God’s grace and love. I trust that things will continue to improve as time goes on, and the Lord continues to bless us.

    • Debi Walter says:

      Mark, You said it well, “a challenging ride full of ups and downs, and we are still together by God’s grace and love.” All of us can say the same thing. If it weren’t for God’s grace and love we would have nothing to share. Happy late anniversary!

  7. This was beautiful. Thanks for sharing it with us. Our anniversary is Aug 2, 1975. Coming up on 37 years!

    What a beautiful gift♥
    My amazing husband and I will be celebrating our 32nd anniversary on July 3rd.
    We agreed before we got married that the “d” word did not exist.
    There is no back door or window to escape through.
    God has worked in us and through us. Changing us, challenging us.
    Using our marriage to conform us to His image.
    Thank you, Lord, that I’m not who I used to be and I look forward to what is yet to be♥

    • Debi Walter says:

      Amen to that–“I’m not who I used to be,” what a gift it is to be able to change as God leads us in His power. Marcia, your wedding anniversary is the same date as my parent’s. This year would have been their 65th anniversary if my Dad hadn’t passed away in 2004. Thanks for commenting.

    My Tom and I were married 5-5-90. 22 years this month 🙂 I thank God for him and for us! Blessings on all of your marriages, new and older.

    That song is beautiful… so wonderful. In fact my husband and I used to sing together so it reminds me of that time in our life.
    We got married November 3rd, 1973 ~ 38 years ago.. we have learned that it is indeed for better or worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health… and we will stay ’till death parts us’.

  12. Patti Bodenhamer says:

    June 16th 1979 This year will be 33. We are going to go overnight somewhere. Haven’t decided yet may have to be a different night than our anniversary though.

  13. Bette Elliott says:

    My wonderful Mark and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary on March 6th of this year. I can honestly and sincerely say by the Grace of God our marriage continues growing. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. I love my man. Bette

    Dan and I will be celebrating 16 years on June 22nd. Our third daughter happened to be born on that date eight years later, but Dan’s always insisted that it is indeed our special day first, joking when she was born, “I hope she doesn’t mind celebrating on the 23rd every year…” 🙂

    It’s so cliche’, but I truly am more in love with my husband now, than I ever dreeeamed I could be sixteen years ago! God has been so kind to us. And it makes me so happy to know (especially in light of your other commenters, here), that we’re only just getting started!

    • Debi Walter says:

      It is NOT cliche’, Susan. This is why we do what we do. Thank you for being a vital part of our Vineyard. We love hearing how it is going on your side of town. Did Dan tell you he talked to Tom–it’s time for us to get together soon.
