In my young years, we were taught by our mother to learn to do for ourselves so that when the time came to go out on our own, we were ready to set up house with that one we chose to spend the rest of our lives with.
As you will notice in our newspaper, we read of couples who are married for more 50 years. And they acknowledge there were good times and bad times, but the vows they took were important enough to them that they were able to move on with their married life with the blessing of God.
The vows I took with my wife are very important to me. Even though there have been some bad times, I remember when we had many good times. Lord willing, those vows will go on until that day when we are called Home.
So, as time seems to quickly pass, we sit back and think about the good times and the bad times. We hope that, with our Lord’s blessing, we will see many years left on our time here on earth. Then we pass on to better things in Heaven, where we join up with those who went before. I bide my time in wait, yet do what I can while waiting.
We have been truly blessed with that love from the day we are born to the day we leave. How great it is to be able to experience the happenings of life as it is dealt to us. God Bless.
