Just an old chocolate box.....


filled with poems written by a 16 year old girl...


who loved a boy....

So now I close with this prayer
That our love together we shall share...
And in the years ahead as in the days gone by
We will love each other until we die..

November 3, 1969..

And still does... 

xoxo...

  3. My dear Faye, your posts about you and your hubby have been so very touching...
    42 years, and still your heart gives a little squeeze every time you see him (except on a VERY bad day, lol!)... I know what you mean. We have our 30 years' coming up
    You are an inspiration, Mrs Keeper of the Home! Many, many congratulations to you both.
    Hugs,

  4. Lovely, wonderful box! Happy Anniversary. If I may?

    Once many years ago two hearts entwined in love and devotion. Through the struggles and times of testing and trials, their love grew until one day a three fold cord began to form and the inner core became the strength of the Lord. As His grace and mercy bound them into the work of love and mastery He provided, they became artistry in the truest sense. Whosoever looked upon their union saw the evidence of the Master's hands, and were shown through their love and service the path that leads unto the quiet restful fields of home, hearth, and kindred children. Mercy and grace given through these two vessels doing the work of His choosing, the years of dedication, and tender service were a blessing they did impart. As the cousre of their lives flowed, the world was a better place for their passage though it. Because they had learned the sweetest truth man could ever be given, Christ in us, His glory to reveal. When the latter time comes, and their lives draw near the end, it will truly be said of them, "Well Done".

    Happy Anniversary, you two. Be blessed for many more. Godspeed! Amen!
