Our third anniversary is this month, although, not that long ago I would not have even believed that it would be possible to be married again after a divorce. I would have said it was even less likely to be so happily remarried to my first husband!
Oh, but God. Only God could have orchestrated our lives to be where they are now.
We are so grateful for all of God’s blessings. They have been bestowed on us in many forms

and even tears… healing tears, painful tears, emotional tears, and finally – tears of joy and gratitude.
The turning point in our story occurred about 2 years after our divorce. We were at a new juncture of civil companionship, meeting for church service at the church that hosts our recovery program. I saw the marquee when I pulled in the parking lot announcing a sermon about healthy marriage lessons. I confess, I almost did a U-turn right there.
I had been married to my ex for almost 23 years and more than half of them had been on very brittle ground and a glaring example of the ‘worse’ in the “for better or worse” part of the wedding vows we exchanged. We were divorced almost 2 years when we were finally able to be civil…
It was not an enjoyable sermon experience for me and probably not for my ex. Pastor Butch was a guest who presented this healthy marriage lesson and his teaching was sound, honest, concise and passionate. Unfortunately, it stung.
Believe it or not, in that sting there was the planting of a very important seed though. A seed of hope and a source to fuel that hope. In celebrating 3 years Remarried, we also celebrate an entirely new marriage relationship – built on a Godly foundation and sustained by His Grace.
God and His servants.
