Forty-Seven Years....


Hello there everyone.. 
Terry and I are celebrating our 47th anniversary today!  
Well, actually we celebrated on Friday with a little day trip to St. Martins and dinner out and such.. 
A lovely day!  

The photo above seems like a lifetime ago in some ways but yet I can almost feel myself standing there holding onto his hand as he guided the knife in the cutting of our cake.. 

I doubt if we could have imagined this day on that night so long ago.. 
It would have seemed like aeons away and we probably would picture ourselves as terribly old and feeble.. smile..

It was a sweet wedding with all of our family and friends and then I put on my going away outfit (as it was called then.) and had this sweet pic taken with our precious parents.. 

Doesn't Terry look like his Mom?  
My mother is only 36 year old.. Imagine!  
Now she is 82 and my darling Dad has gone to be with the Lord as has both of Terry's parents.. 
We were so blessed to have all of our parents in our lives for many years.. 
They gave us encouragement, advice and love .. Then covered us in prayer everyday... 
So thankful for all of the blessings that our marriage brought.. 
Our precious family.. 
Children and grandsons... 
And dear friends... 
And a love that has endured ....
God has been so good to us.. 

So, my dears I am happy you dropped by... 
Hope you have a great week and God bless... 


Here is a little something to think about.. eh? 


Hugs...

  7. Happy 47th anniversary to you both! I like your beautiful hair all done up in curls. I remember those hair styles. Isn't it amazing what we thought about when we were first married and how it is now? And I love my husband more today than the day we were married but I loved in a different way. I like the Marriage Box writing. So true. God bless you!

  21. I'm not kidding, you both looked a lot like my parents when they married 45 years ago! Amazing! Love seeing the beautiful pictures and enjoyed your trip down memory lane, and what a beautiful truth the "marriage box" is... it is not about what you take, but about what you give! Happy Anniversary to both of you, a lovely picture of you both! May the Lord's richest blessings be with you for many years to come :)

  27. Sorry I'm late with your anniversary wishes. Forty-seven years is a long time by today's standards and I know you and Terry set a Godly standard for your lives and marriage. I wish you both many more happy and healthy years of love and good times. Congratulations! The photos are wonderful but I like the recent one of you both best as it shows that you've stood the test of time and life and all the ups and downs that come with it. God bless you both! Hugs. Pam
