Lasting Love

Today is my parents’ 32nd wedding anniversary. Over the years, through thick and thin, my mom and dad have loved each other with an admirable and unflinching love.

Both of my parents come from godly homes where they learned the value of true love and commitment. Throughout my life I have memories of their affection for each other (at times embarrassing) and their fight to stay closely connected. Never once did I doubt that they loved each other, loved God, or that they loved me. I’m so thankful for their example of what it means to build a love that lasts, that isn’t dependent on circumstances or superficial feelings.

I still have thirty years before I’ll be where they are today. Thanks mom and dad for loving God, loving me, and loving each other. It has made all the difference to me!
