33 years and counting...

Today is Dennis and I's anniversary.  33 years of marriage to the same person which is by today's standard almost impossible.  Oh, it wasn't all fun and games, but it was a covenant before God that we took very seriously and still do. 
This is what we looked like when we fell in love with in the late 70's.  He was a little younger in the first pic but you get the look.
 
We were wild and carefree in our younger married days.
Then things took a serious turn.  We had a child. (we had better straighten up!)



 
 

Lake times.
Then sometimes "life" happens and you wonder why did this happen to you.  But it is in these times that you are now sure there is a God and He has His hand on you, because if He didn't it would be almost impossible to endure.  You rejoice in that fact and you go on with the life you now have.  The "new normal".  Yes, it is different but it is still joyful because "This is the Day the Lord has made".   Happy anniversary to Dennis and I wouldn't trade one day for anything.  Much love, Cheri
