A Silver Wedding Anniversary~~~25 Years Ago Today!



Today *I* Celebrate 25 Years of Marriage with my Beloved!
Where did those years go?
So much has changed since that day!

We vowed before God
for better,
for worse,
in sickness,
in health,
for richer,
for poor,
til death us do part...

And like all of us, so much of those vow
really tested our love for each other.
But there is no one else I'd rather have
by my side through it all!
Many more years to come and with
God's help they are even the best yet!

Thought you might enjoy a few family pictures...

Michaela's 1st Easter in 1992.

My favorite Family Picture done for a
church directory!

This was our latest family picture taken again, for
a church directory and if I remember
correctly it was about 4 years ago.

So, as you can see...we have aged somewhat
gracefully (I hope) over these past
25 years.

The Lord was so good to us, when
we thought we'd not be able to have children
he blessed us with a beautiful daughter...
who is going be 20 in December.

Again, where did those years all go?

Be Blessed!
Lorena

Oh sweet friend...I missed this! :( Congrats to you and your handsome hubby on 25 years of marriage. We will celebrate 33 in September and I know firsthand that marriage is hard. It takes work and commitment and faith.

Thank you for sharing with us. It does my heart good to see your smiling faces.

Love to you~
