~True Love Never Ends~
Time is slipping by. Wrinkled faces, streaks of grey hair, a few more aches and pains but it comes to us all doesn't it! It's hard to believe 30 years ago we gathered with our families in a small church and told each other we would cherish one another until death do us part. Dad walked with me down the aisle to give me away....he got lots of practice in after that having 3 more girls he would give away. Grandparents and aunts and uncles were there and now many of them are but a memory. I think of the ones that were so young and now many of them are married and have children of their own.
We are all so blessed to have memories. It's good to reflect on times past both good and bad and see what we have learned from it. Life is fragile use it the best you can and when you make mistakes quickly ask for forgiveness....letting things pile up just doesn't make things better.
We not only became as one but so did our familes. We have shared many gatherings as one big family. We are very blessed that everyone gets along. We all have our ups and downs but we all care about each other and our extended families. Little did I know as a young bride that I was gaining far more than just a wonderful husband.
Now on a bit of a sad note seems like our exciting news got a bit turned upside down. There is a reason for all things and we just turn it all over to our Lord. Sometimes things happen for a reason that we just can't understand.
Wishing each of you a week filled with much joy and a giving heart!
