We had a wonderful few weeks again over Christmas and New Year with our family and friends.
This year we added our celebrations of reaching the mile-stone of being married for fifty marvellous, happy years..
We can only give thanks to our wonderful Lord for all His has done for us over all these years.
Seeing the DVD of our old wedding photos and singing a couple of the songs we chose for our wedding day brought back beautiful memories.
Fifty years is a long time and there had to be that touch of loss also as we saw images of some dear family and friends who are no longer with us. There are some of these folk in this photo I just have to share here of course.
We accept sorrow because God does comfort and bring back joy. Although our faces now may show the ups and downs of the years, this shows only a little of the great joy we have been given over all these years in our marriage.
Here is another photo to show our family now. God is still bringing us great happiness through our children as we watch their faithful walks with him. In the years to come may it also be true for each of our precious grandchildren.
