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

5 Keys to the Ministry of Listening

And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!” Luke 9:35

Jesus took Peter, James, and John to a mountain to pray. Moses and Elijah appeared and talked with Jesus. Jesus’ face was altered, and His garments became a dazzling white.

Not knowing what to say, Peter asked Jesus if they could make shelters for Moses, Elijah, and Jesus. While Peter was speaking, a cloud overshadowed them, and they heard the command to listen to God’s Son, Jesus.

Listening. We listen to the news as we’re making breakfast and getting ready for the day. One ear tuned to the news and the other to the banter of everyone in the house. We caught the words of everyone, but did we catch the meaning behind the words?
