Thanks for the Example Mom & Dad

The example of commitment.  The example of unconditional love.  The example of loving others as yourself.  The example of pushing through and not giving up.  The example of forgiveness.  The example of loving God.

Each of your families’ that did not have a faith in God until later in life.  They beat the odds.  You each grew up in families that did not model Christianity until you were older, yet you embraced Christianity as your own.  You beat the odds.  You raised 5 kids who are now all working out their faith in their lives and their families’ lives.  I’m proud to be part the 3rd generation raising the 4th generation with a strong belief in God and His graciousness to us.

Happy 55th Anniversary!  It seems like only yesterday you were celebrating 50.  🙂  What a blessing.  May God continue to keep you and cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you!
