Just have a few minutes as we have a very busy day ahead of us, but just wanted to take a minute or two to travel back a while in time to 39 years ago today when I was a VERY young 20 year old girl about to marry my best friend. Little did I know the roads we would travel down, the 4 children we would parent, or the 11 grandchildren there were to be to bless out future, or my heart would have clearly burst! I have been blessed WAY more than I ever dreamed I might be. I was always one of those little girls, and then young woman who never had in doubt in mind about what she wanted out of life. To be married and raise a family. Oh sure, I gave some thought to maybe teaching, but honestly not much else ever crossed my mind. And the Lord surely gave me the desire of my heart, and how grateful I am. I couldn't honestly be blessed with a better man. Not perfect, but nearly, lol. He loves God, me, his family, and his work and always in that order. There really isn't many who know him that don't call him their friend, he is ALWAYS willing to lend a hand to someone in need, his children to this day come to him for his wisdom and council, and his grandkids can't seem to get enough of him. I thank God for him, and pray the Lord allows us now to grow old gracefully together, and spend these last years as happy as the first 39!
|SOMEDAY I WILL FIGURE OUT HOW TO SCAN AN OLD PHOTO OR TWO OF US TOGETHER, OR MAYBE EVEN ONE OF OUR WEDDING PICTURES, THOUGH THERE ARE NOT MANY. NEITHER ONE OF US LIKE OUR PICTURES TAKEN MUCH, BUT LOOKING BACK I WISH WE'D DONE IT MORE OFTEN!|
