Fifty years is half a century

For most good things to last.

But we're still together and still in love,

And share a wonderful past.

Memories sweet, old and new

Are in our hearts to stay.

We give our Lord the credit

For this wonderful day.

Down memories lane- as we go back

We know that God ordained

Marriage as a Sacred Trust,

Come trials, heartaches or pain.

Today we celebrate fifty years

And remember as we became one,

It has always been Each for the Other

And both for the Lord.

We hope you as our friends in the Lord will celebrate with us. All of you have grown to mean a lot to us on our blogging journey.

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! That's quite an accomplishment in this day and time. My hubby and I celebrated our 35th this year.

And, yes....I do remember the dishes that came in the oatmeal boxes! Weren't they called "Wedding Oats" brand? I still buy them sometimes but the for past 25 years at least they only have plastic glasses in them. ha

I came over today from the KJV Blog Directory. Have read several of your posts today and enjoyed them all.

God bless you!
