Today we celebrate mom & dad's 61st wedding anniversary. Dad is in heaven in the presence of the Lord he loved and served. He is "home" in the house that Jesus went to prepare for him. Mom is here in the house that dad built for her 60 years ago. Even though they are apart, we look forward to that great reunion day when they will be together again...forever. What a "blessed hope" we have as believers, as committed followers of Jesus Christ!
My Godly Parents
We celebrate their life today. We rejoice that they taught us Christian principles and values and lived them out before us. I honor them today and rejoice in their godly lives. I'll see you later today, mom! Dad, I'll see you soon!
"But until then, my heart will go on singing,
Until then, with joy I'll carry on;
Until that day my eyes behold that City
Until the day God calls me home."
A commandment with promise:
"Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you." - Exodus 20:12
