June 5, 1982 these 2 young kids said “I do” and today they say, “I still do.” 35 years later they still choose each other.
What an amazing accomplishment! As soon of my married friends know, marriage life ain’t always rainbows and unicorns. It’s hard work. And my parents marriage is not perfect and they have had their own struggles. But I love their relationship today. I love that my dad still sends her flowers, just because. I love that he takes her on dates. I love that he takes her shopping because he wants her to always look her best. I love that he comes behind her and grabs her and tells her that she’s beautiful and other yucky rated R stuff. I love that she takes care of him. She makes breakfast, lunch and dinner for him. She calls him to tell him she loves him. I love that she grabs his hand while they are in the car.
Throughout the years I have learned so much from my parents marriage. Some things I have applied in my own marriage. I am so grateful for my parents and the wonderful & Godly example they have been to me, my marriage and family.
Mom & Dad, Happy Anniversary!! I pray that God will bless you another 35 years and that your later years will be better than your former years! That God will grant all of your hearts desires and that He will open crazy doors for you, your marriage and ministry. (but secretly I pray that a door would be open in Dallas, TX). Love you both to the moon and back!!
