Jeff and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary, yesterday, June 26th!!
Truth be told, it really seems like only yesterday.........till I look at this photo,
taken on our first anniversary!!!
My, but we were both sooooo young!!!!!
We were both so excited for the future and what life had to offer!!
So much has happened in those 35 years........
The gift of two wonderful children, Jeffry and Janelle,
Two faithful pets, Shelby and Chaz, both gone now, but not forgotten!!!!
Living in 9 different states and moving more times than I can count on two hands!!
Serving in the pastorate for over 20 years!
A Master's Degree and Doctorate for Jeff and a PHT degree for me........Putting Hubby Through!
The loss of all 4 parents! We miss them all and are so grateful for all the wonderful memories!!!
The gift of our new son, Austin, Janelle's hubby, 2 beautiful granddaughters, Bella and Sophia, and our granddog, Charlotte!
Surgeries, illness, up's and down's, joy's and pain, and finally, my stroke last year!!
So much life lived in 35 short years!!!
As we celebrated quietly yesterday, I was filled with such gratitude for a loving and caring husband that has shared this journey with me over these past years!!
He is my soul mate and best friend.......a gift from God, that I am so blessed to live my life with!!!
We are both older now, but so much wiser than the two people we were!!!
My heart is truly full and I am Blessed!
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
But the greatest of these is LOVE!
I Corinthians 13:13
Today begins the next 35 years.....filled with hope and love,
NO MORE MOVING!!!
Wishing you faith for today, hope for tomorrow, and MUCH LOVE, my friends~
