M is for Marriage...

Jenny Matlock keeps me motivated with her alphabet challenges - and this week it's the letter "M"...

On August 29th, 1969 Gary and I got married

(I hope the reason Gary looks so painful in this photo 
was because my brother Bill had dropped some rice
down his shirt collar just as we were kneeling at the altar,
...and not because he wasn't sure what marriage would hold!)

We didn't have a fancy wedding...
probably had less than 100 guests.

But the cost of the wedding,
and the size of the guest list
is not what holds a marriage together in my opinion.

For us,
we choose to love each other no matter what!
We continually strive to practice 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,
...and sometimes that is quite challenging!

Fancy weddings don't necessarily lead to healthy marriages. I love the photo of the two of you. Beautiful!

Great M word!!! Love is a beautiful thing when you fine the right someone. Then again, you already knew that (smile).

Happy ALMOST Anniversary!

I love the expressions on your faces.

But even more so I love the fact that you are still together and strong after all these years!
