A Wedding is a Day, A Marriage is a Lifetime

Hello out there! My husband and I have been married for 31 years today! I think that every year should be a celebration! Life is such a gift, and I don't ever want to take it for granted. We should never take our spouses for granted either. I really believe in not sweating the small stuff. A wedding is a day, a marriage is a life time. A good, healthy, happy, and loving marriage takes work. I am very blessed, very thankful, and I love being a wife, mother, and grandmother. I listen to the Catholic Radio Station, Guadalupe Radio Network, 91.5 FM when I am running all my errands. (I always wanted to be a DJ in my spare time-Ha Ha)This morning they told us about a website for married couples:  It is
I looked up the site, and was thrilled with all of the different types of information they have for engaged couples and married couples. This is a Catholic Marriage website, but I think it would be great for everyone!
 They have a daily marriage tip, scriptures, different family perspectives. All kinds of great, loving, prayerful advice. I'm going to end my blog today with the marriage tip they had for 5/29/14, and a scripture they had for another day.

What lifts up your spirit? A funny story, a good meal, a hug, a compliment? Lift up each other today!
(I think that is great advice, we should always try to lift up our spouse, not bring them down.)

Acts 1:14
"All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer."
( Pray with each other and for each other, pray with your children, let prayer be a #1 priority in your family.)

I thought of something else I wanted to add: Laugh, sing, dance, I can't tell you how many times I've gone out to check on Jim when he's working in the shop (he always has the radio on, listening to a country western station) and we will two-step around the welding  machine and other assorted equipment! Live life with lots of joy in your heart and love blooms all around. Bye for now, Sharla


  1. Yep! There is always singing and dancing at your house, and it has spread to mine aswell. Congrats on so many years of marriage, you guys are truly a testament to me and scant!

  2. Look at the (3) pictures I posted, with singing commentary!

  3. Congratulations on your 31st anniversary! Carolyn Nelson introduced me to your site. She and I are cousins but have never gotten to meet each other except through phone and Facebook! I want to read more of what you do, but don't have a lot of time to do that when I'm at work. But as I have time, I will check out your blog.
