They could have waited to be married on 8/8/88, but who wants to get married on a Monday?! Therefore, today marks 30 years of marriage for my wonderful parents! ⠀
These two are such examples of Christ in my life! My mom is a lover and a caregiver, my dad is a protector and a teacher and together they have shown me such grace and dedication! ⠀
Not only are they amazing examples of what God calls us to be as parents but also as a married couple. And that is what we honor and celebrate with them today! My parents have taught me that divorce is not an option. Even when the world makes it look so appealing and easy, God called us to stand by commitment even when things are not easy, even when the other person is going through hardship or grief. Through sickness and in health, rich or poor, good times or bad. That is what marriage is: not a feeling but a commitment! Thank you Mom and Dad for being an example of two people on a journey towards God’s will, doing life together, and having a good time while you do it! I love you both! Happy 30th Anniversary!
