40 Years and still counting . . . .

Today is our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Goodness, how time
has raced to this point in our lives! We have been so blessed
and are so grateful to God for His grace and goodness.

For the past two days we have been reminiscing our rehearsal and wedding day. We have laughed and talked of things that had almost been forgotten.

One of the desires of our hearts has been to travel, and we have been priviledge to travel in many parts of the world -- together. Through the joy, tears, laughter, memories good and bad and all the experiences of life that have helped to mold us into the people we are today -- the same, yet so different -- each step has been exciting and worth every inch of the way.

Over the last 40 years we have be blessed with an innumerous amount friends. I see each one as a beautiful flower that together, make a prodigious "boquet". However, God's most extravagant gift to us (besides His own Son) is our precious son. He has been an absolute blessing to us through the years and he now has a sweet family of his own. His beautiful wife of ten years and two darling children are the crowning touch!

I just finished a summer Bible study entitled "Ruth - Loss, Love and Legacy" by Kelly Minter. It has given me a greater desire to leave a legacy of my Christian faith and love for God to my family and those who will come after me. My legacy may not be as profound as that of Ruth and Boaz who are in the lintage of Christ, but as long as I do my best, that's all that really counts.

Happy Anniversary to my sweet Husband of 40 years. May the Lord grant us many more happy and healthy years together. I love you!!
