Today, Dan and I are celebrating our 46th anniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been that long. We are very thankful for all the blessings the Lord has bestowed on us over the years. Are we perfect, no, but we love each other and have made a commitment to “hang in there” through good times or bad, ups or downs. The Bible tells us:
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. (Genesis 2:18 KJV)
We have become a good team over the years. Even now as we go birdwatching. I love to do the birdwatching and he likes to take the photos. And that is only one of the ways we blend our personalities into one “togetherness.” Most important of all, we together and individually have “togetherness” with our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Since this blog is about birdwatching, what can we learn from them about staying together. We find throughout the birding world and other critters, that many of the mates stick together for life.
But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; (Job 12:7 NKJV)
Here are some of the monogamous (mate for life) birds that have been mentioned in our articles:
Birds of the Bible – Dove and Turtle-Dove
Eagles and The Atmosphere of Grace
Ian’s Bird of the Week
These are just a few I picked out, there are plenty more that mention mating for life.
