53 Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was our 53rd Wedding Anniversary.  God has been so good to us.  We know that He is the reason
that our marriage has been such a good one.  I can't believe it has been 56 years since I first met Silas.  We were Sophomores in high school.  His Dad was a pastor in Shreveport, about 300miles away.  I had gone with my pastor and his family to a church convention.  They were starting a new church and worshiped in an old theater building.  I had no idea he would be my husband then.  He said he knew when he first met me that I would be his wife one day.  Do you believe in love at first sight?   Guess I was a little more conscious.  Anyway, almost 3 years later we were married at my home church in Ponchatoula.   I have never regretted that day! 

I could go on and tell you all the good things and bad things we went through but I will just say that I am so thankful for the 53 years the Lord has given us and look forward to many more.
