Hello there dear girls..
Just a wee post today ..
Terry and I are celebrating our 46th anniversary..
Forty six years ago it was an Easter weekend, too..
There was not any snow and the weather was very spring like..
We were just a couple of kids embarking on a long road that we could not even imagine ..
I remember when we celebrated Terry's parents 45th anniversary and I don't think we could picture ourselves doing the same..
But here we are...
We owe it to the Lord for the lovely blessings we have received down through the years..
He has given us a wonderful family and a life full of love and joy..
We have had our ups and downs just like everyone else..
I look at that first picture of us taken at Christmas 1969 and we were so young..
It was the first meal that I had shared with his family and I was a nervous wreck.. grin..
I found them a bit daunting to be honest..
We came from two different worlds and I was outside of my comfort zone as our life styles were not the same..
Over the years, though our lifestyles have meshed into one..
We have learned from each other..
They say opposites attract and we are although we are more alike after all this time then we are different..smile..
Not that everyday has been a picnic...
There were times when we both could have thrown in the towel but we had a family..
They were far more important to both of us then our own desires..
Today, I thank the dear Lord for giving us the sense to realize it even when we could have gone our separate ways..
Yesterday as we gathered together as a family to celebrate Easter I thought how thankful I was to sit beside the dearest man on earth to me..
To look across and share a smile with him over something that our grandsons or children had to say..
That makes me thankful that neither one of us gave up on each other..
We have been so blessed to have the Lord in our lives and to lean on Him for strength on those days when we thought we could have slammed the door and not looked back..
The years have passed and we still love each other..
There are times when I look up to see him looking at me and
I say.. what?
And he just smiles..
I still love that smile..
I just can't imagine my life without him nor do I want to..
He is so honest and caring..
A loving father and grand father..
A wonderful provider ..
Always looking after me and making me laugh...
And he loves Jesus... smile...
So dear hearts please celebrate with us today..
A milestone for sure and I hope and pray that God will bless us with many more..
I have to go..
The dear thing is taking me out for dinner and I need to get ready..
I found the thought below on the web and thought it worth sharing with you...
our sweet sweet family..
a girl and two boys and now all of these.. xo
God bless you all and thank you so much for your response to my little survey thing last post and your dear sweet words..
The amount of emails I received is really overwhelming and I will do a post next week about it all along with our Easter celebrations..
Have a blessed Easter Sunday,,,
Jesus paid a great price for our souls..
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life..
And all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus....
