We have this moment to hold in our hands,
And to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand;
Yesterday’s gone, and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today. ~ Bill Gaither
Thirty Seven years ago November 3rd, 1973.
We were young and not really knowing what we were getting ourselves into.
God was with us and He followed us through times that were good and times that were not so good. He protected us from ourselves and our immature growing up years.
When the babies came we did our best and when the sicknesses came we again did our best.
When life threw us one curve after another we again did the best we could do to move forward in the same direction.
We pressed on when didn’t know why or how and we took one step at a time to regroup when we felt so undone and alone. There have been challenges and through them all…
God has been with us deepening our commitment and our love and faith in the journey together.
Now in the autumn part of our lives… I pray He will continue to be with us as we grow through the wonderful privilege of being grandparents and as we pass the torch of faith and love to those who walk behind us.
We have this moment… We have this moment in time…before it slips by us like grains of sand… to say to each other…
Happy Anniversary and I am glad we made this journey together.
May we cherish each day and Thank God for giving us this gift of marriage.
As I am often reminded…”Remember we are supposed to grow old together.”
