More cause for celebration~

Yesterday, my parent’s church honored them for their 50 years of marriage.

cake/50Pastor Dan said, “50 years ago you pledged your loyalty to one another.  You said you would live together after God’s ordinance, in the holy commitment of marriage.  You promised to love, comfort, honor and keep one another both in sickness and in health – keeping yourselves only for the other.

March 13, 1959You also spent many years sharing an unwavering devotion to the ways and will of God.  He has been your Savior, Friend, your Everything.  You have endeavored with like passion to live your lives and your marriage for Him.

March 22, 2009Today, in the presence of God, family, friends…will you reaffirm the pledges of faithfulness that you made so long ago – pledges made to one another and also the pledges you made to God….?”

“We will!”


*these are just excerpts – there was much more shared!  🙂
