Dear Elizabeth and Jonathan:
Congratulations on your 25th wedding anniversary. What a great accomplishment!
As you know, God made marriage as one of the highest forms of worship and one of the great institutions there is here on earth. He even uses the bride and bride groom as an analogy for His love of the church and for His coming return as well. That alone tells us how special the marriage bond is to Him.
Not all couples in America make it to their 25th wedding anniversary anymore. Statistics tell us that almost one half of couples are divorced before they reach twenty-five years of marriage. Thank goodness God has blessed your efforts to honor Him through your marriage as you have set an excellent example for others as well.
I thank God for your successful twenty-five years of marriage and look forward to writing you a letter for your fiftieth wedding anniversary as well. God is not through with you yet, and has big plans in store to bless your marriage.
Enjoy this special milestone together and know that God is honored by your commitment to each other, to the institution of marriage and most of all to Him.
Brother Mike Dawson
