Happy Anniversary to My Folks!

 
Today is the 57th wedding anniversary of my Mom and Dad, Rose and Charlie. That's them in the picture above, along with their oldest great-grandchild (they have 3!), Emily. This pic was taken at my nephew Stephen and his lovely wife, Andrea's, wedding a couple of years ago. Wow! How time flies!!!
 
I read this quote this morning:
"When I have learned to love GOD better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now."
~C. S. Lewis
 
That's the kind of love I pray the man the Lord brings into my life will have. That he will love the LORD far more than he ever will me. If he does, then I will be extremely blessed.
 
I've always wanted to be married and am still waiting, trusting God for that man. I have learned over time that God is faithful and He knows my heart's desires. He also has plans for my life and continues to work those out. I have also learned to be content in where He has me - not always easy, but definitely worth trusting Him with my life!
 
I can tell you that I know, beyond a shadow of doubt, that my mom and dad love each other and their children and that they love their extended family that has grown over the years to include sons- and daughter-in laws, grandchildren (and their spouses) and the great-grandchildren. We are blessed so way beyond measure to have this awesome example of love lived out before us!!
 
I'm holding out for a love like theirs!!!!
