Dad and Mom: 30 Years

Mom and Dad
Today my parents celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. As I consider their years together, I am aware of one thing above all others: a faithful God has carried them on wings of grace every step of the way. May He be magnified for His mercy today!

Daddy and Momma, I am so thankful to our good God for strengthening you to keep your promise to one another all these years. I am so thankful for the hard work and the heart work you have invested in order to love one another faithfully. I am so thankful for the friendship that you share, for the help and support you provide to one another through life's ever-changing seasons. I am so thankful that you continue to love each other tenderly. I know that you are both aware of many areas where you still want to grow, but your marriage is a picture of Christ and his church, just as God's Word says it should be.

Here's my dad's statement to the twitterverse today:

"Today my bride of 30 years and I celebrate our anniversary. God has made a loud statement of his love by joining me to this lovely lady."

And my husband's reply:

"Congratulations! You are a lucky man, and we are a lucky family to have your example of God-honoring marriage."

Amen and amen. Daddy and Momma, I love you both so much.
