One Flesh...............

Vow Renewal Ceremony
Momma and Daddy's 40th Anniversary

Today marks the 54th anniversary of my parent's wedding.  Although Momma has now been with Jesus for almost 5 years, Daddy still feels the need to celebrate this day.  I understand that.  He has loved Momma for more than half of his life.  The fact that she has moved on to be with Jesus didn't stop that love, it only enhanced it.  Their love, like that of any couple who are Christians, now lives in eternity. 

His heart is a bit heavy today, but still joyful for having known Mommas love.  Again, I understand that.  So, I'm celebrating with Daddy today.  Happy Anniversary Daddy.  Momma still loves you with her whole heart, even more perfectly than ever before!

...‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother
and be united to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh’
So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together,
let no one separate.

Matthew 19: 5-6
