An Anniversary and A Passing
Today is my parents anniversary! They've been married 55 years!
This has only come about by God's grace!
They married young - he was 20 and in the Navy, she was 17 and in high school. He went overseas, she finished school.
They went on to have three kids - boy, girl, boy.
They had some rocky married years. It was hard. But when they thought of breaking up and divorcing, they thought of the reputation of the Lord, and how people knew they were Christians and what would that say about Him?
They stayed together, and have worked very hard to communicate and love each other. We are so thankful for them!
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!
The passing is of Tim's Mom's husband Terry. He died yesterday afternoon. Tim and I are traveling down to Florida with his brother and sister in law tomorrow. We want to be with Jean (Tim's mom) and help to comfort her. They were married for 30 years. This was her second 30 year marriage - Tim's dad passed away on their 30th wedding anniversary. We would appreciate prayer for us during this time. Terry was a difficult man, estranged from most of his children for many years. Their will be many mixed emotions during this time. We want to comfort Jean during this time, and be sensitive to others as well.
It is a blessing to be able to both celebrate and help those who mourn. God is the source of all things, and we Trust in Him.
