Thirty-seven years ago today, my parents said I do……
And, subsequently, forced their wedding party to wear large bow ties and red dresses with white lace that only the Amish could love. We’ll just let the awesome, red veil accessories speak for themselves.
Thirty-seven years is a very long time, especially by today’s standards. Of course, I don’t know every detail of their marriage. But, I do know it has not been without struggle. Nor, has it been without a relentless commitment to working through it all.
Even years into their journey, they saw things in their marriage that needed to be changed. And, they did what they had to do to not just fix it – but make it brand new.
I love their unyielding commitment to Christ.
To each other.
To the body of Christ.
And, I especially love the fact that they still never say goodbye to one another on a simple phone call without first saying, “I love you.”
I love those two.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.
