Forever My Love

Celebrating 50 Love-Filled Years with You!

“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3b

Through the rocky grounds and lush meadows
Together, we have traveled.
We sang, we danced, we crawled, and we pranced.
Together, you and I.
Mountains, valleys, and deserts we have traveled.
Rivers, seas, and skies we have crossed.
Earthquakes, typhoons, monsoons, fires, and winds, 
we have endured.
Through it all, we saw the colors of the rainbow in our love.
We chose love, and that has made all the difference.
I love you from the very depths of my being.

I celebrate you on our 50th Wedding Anniversary!

Your Beloved

The mean things that my school mates said and did to me when I was in elementary school made me feel like eating worms. How about you?

I didn’t think about the loving Mama and Daddy I went home to or the dinner waiting for me. I didn’t remember my brothers and the joy I had as we played together.
