Mt Wellington Community Church


Last month John and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. I know there are people in our church who have been married for 50 years plus. Did you know the Queen and Prince Philip have been married for 71 years?

We feel like it was only 5 minutes ago that we were newly married, then had a young family and it seems like in a blink of an eye 30 years have gone by.

Richard Opie who married us had a verse for us from Ecclesiastics 4:12. Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. During the early years and when the children were little, life was stressful at times. But in all the stresses we were always determined that God was going to be a part of our marriage. The third cord in our relationship.

I want to celebrate the marriages in our church. From those who have recently married to those who have been married for over 50 years. God has been faithful.

Psalm 100: 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Let's all be encouraged in our marriage relationships.
