49 years!

Today is my parents' 49th wedding anniversary!! Can you believe that?! Amazing!!

John and Carolyn on their wedding day, January 26, 1962

still together 49 years later!!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!!!

You two are a wonderful example of commitment and loyalty!  You took those wedding vows that you made all those years ago very seriously!  It's a rare thing these days to see a couple that's been together for as long as you two have.  And it's such a blessing! I am proud to be able to tell people that my parents are still together and happily married. 

And now, forty nine years later, you have two sons, one daughter, two daughter-in-laws, one son-in-law, seven grandsons, and three granddaughters!! 

What a legacy!  Praise the Lord!! 


  1. What a wonderful tribute to begin our special day! All the glory goes to our Lord. He is the One who has given us all the blessings of our life. We are who we are and have what we have from His precious hand alone. We praise Him for each one of you and say with John the apostle,"I give thanks that all my children are walking in the truth." That is the greatest gift of all.
    Thank you, Sweetheart.
    Mom and Dad

  2. Happy Anniversary to your parents. You are right -- it is amazing in this day and age. It is also awesome that they have a daughter that appreciates how really terrific her parents are. (My husband and I are married 30 yrs. We have 2 sons and 1 daughter, 2 grandsons and 1 grandaughter and counting:))
