We love hearing testimonies of God’s love and grace in the marriages of friends and acquaintances. God is always at work in our marriage helping us grow more in love with Him and each other, yet we often forget His nearness.
We want to share with you the following testimony of two dear friends as they celebrated a special occasion in their marriage. We pray it will open your eyes to see the ways God is listening and caring for you in the everyday moments of your life.
Meet Dave and Donna Akers
We want to tell you of a really neat thing that happened yesterday!
First of all…it was our 39th wedding anniversary! That alone was neat 🙂 But, yesterday, as Dave and I were sitting in an Ormond Beach restaurant called Alfies, we were thinking back to the day of our wedding. It was about the same time of day that our wedding started. As we were waiting on our server to return we started naming things we remembered about that special day. Then it happened…we hear the restaurant music strike a familiar chord in our pondering ears….”We’ve Only Just Begun,” by the Carpenters was playing!!! That was our wedding song!!!! We haven’t heard it in years and just as it would have been time for our wedding to start 39 years ago….today, sitting in a restaurant we hear once again…our song!! And…today, it brings another special meaning to us!
As Dave said…it’s just another reminder that He is in it!!! And…God shows up again…so tenderly to tell us He loves us!
Congratulations Dave and Donna. Thank you for the example your marriage is to all who know you. We pray God will continue to help you find “the place where there’s room to grow.”
We dedicate the following song to you:
