Sharing 25 years and it's getting better and better and better! Amen!

by Mrs Winnie Lam

Praise the Lord that we are celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary in September! And if you ask me how my married life is? The answer is I am very thankful to the Lord.

I want to share with you that before seeking a better marriage, seek God first.  I put my relationship with the Lord first so that I will be prepared and equipped to minister to my husband.  As I grow in the Lord, my married life is getting better and better!  I believe all marriages have stormy times and it is our choice to sail through them with the grace and strength from the Lord or keep going in our own way.

Men and women have very different personalities.  Leon is an “efficient” person who always aims to complete all his tasks in the shortest possible time and easily multi-tasks.  He never slows down while I like to deal with every thing step by step and be well organized.  At the beginning of our married life, he always asked why I was so slow and would push me fast, fast, faster! Even when we would share a meal in a nice restaurant, he would quickly finish his food while I still had a lot on my plate.  He never likes to spend more time than necessary on anything.  It may not be a big thing to many couples but it created quite a number of unhappy situations in different areas of our married life.  Both of us have been harsh to each other because of this clash but God has opened our eyes and taught us to complement each other with our differences.  At the same time we have both had to learn to adjust ourselves to work together and not against each other.

For the past 5 years living in Australia, I have had compliments from family members and friends that I have been managing very well to settle down here and taking care of my kids and family affairs.  The response from me is that it is the goodness and grace of God.  I am really so very grateful and thankful to our Lord and I know that Leon contributes a lot to our marriage too.  He lives alone in Hong Kong but is faithful to our marriage and very caring to me and our kids.  Every day he calls to see that we are all doing well.  He encourages and comforts me when I am down and even when we argue at times, he still keeps ringing.  All his holidays are spent on our family.  He is a blessing to me and our kids!

I look forward joyfully to our anniversary and believe that we are going to celebrate anniversaries year after year after year.

Praise the Lord! The best is yet to come.
