"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

33 years



Today is our 33rd Anniversary.

We were married at sunrise on top of a mountain.

A wind chime in the tree was our music.

It was beautiful.

Though we have had our ups and downs as any marriage has, we are still growing and learning more about ourselves and each other. I believe God uses marriage more than anything else to mold us. To show us were we are in need of changing. Showing us how to love. It's not always easy, sometimes it's downright hard. But it is so worth it. To have someone like minded to walk this journey with.

I have been blessed over and over again by this mans generous heart. By his unconditional love for me.

Thank you honey! I love you, and appreciate you more than I show!!

Happy Anniversary Mary!
I had the same kind of wedding only mine was in a park overlooking a large lake. Our music was my late brother and best friend.
All that wrote here, it is so true. As problems arise, people want to run away.
The answer is to work it out.. Work.
Then comes the glory...
Do what God says and we will be rewarded w/a happy marriage as yours. Our 33 is in June!
Gosh I feel old.

How beautiful! Missy's wedding was an outdoor sunset wedding up here by the lake 11 years ago. I can't imagine a sunrise wedding.

Happy (belated) anniversary to both of you.
