1977: A Bit of Heaven ~ 2010: We're Still IN!

Friday, June 11, 2010

Thirty-three years ago today
I took your hand in mine,
and promised before God and friends
to love you for all time...
About to depart and begin a new life
happily married...now husband and wife.
A baby-blue Pinto whisked us away
so happy and blessed on our June wedding day.
The years have been full of God's blessings and love
serving our Lord with a call from above.
Two sons now grown who are the joy of our lives,
each of them blessed with a beautiful wife.
Three grandblessings whose lives have only begun...
sweet Zeke, Miss Madie Ruth and little Jackson.
Now older and wiser, and sprinkled with gray...
Still counting our blessings each and every day.
I love you so much, you sweet man of mine.
Thirty-three more will suit me just fine!

Happy Anniversary
All my love always,
Your bride, Jan

Jan, congratulations to you and to G. May you have many, many more blessed years! I left a comment before my "24" note telling you happy anniversary but it must have not gone through. No doubt you thought that was a strange comment!! I just remembered you liked that show.

Love you,

I made your no-bake cookies and took them with us to dinner at an IMB missionary family's home- we devoured them! :)
