17 years ago two people met... and the rest became history! Happy Anniversary Dad and Mom!
I am so blessed to have parents like them. I can't imagine life without them! My parents have been through thick and thin and through all these years have still kept their marriage together and never brought up the "D" word. What a huge example they have been in my life, and in the lives of others. They have showed me how a marriage should look and how I would want to have my marriage look if I get married.
They have trained us kids up to be on fire for the Lord. They have brought us up knowing that we can always run to Christ if we are in trouble and that He is the King of kings and Lord of Lords. Their love for the Lord and the advancement of His kingdom has shined so bright in this dark and fallen world. I know that when God placed them together He did it because He saw their work in ministry would be stronger together than apart.
I love you both so very, very much! Thank you for always being there to talk to, and never pushing away but pressing in! I love it that I can come to you concerning anything! I hope that you have a wonderful day!
With love from your daughter,
[btw, if you want to know the story behind the picture, here it is: My mom and dad were driving somewhere, I'm not sure where (this is before they were married) and spotted a house on fire. My dad immediately pulled over and got a hose to attempt to put it out. Then they called the police and the firemen came and put it all the way out. In the end this picture was put in the newspaper along with a little story about my brave and courageous parents! Oh, and don't you think my Dads cute and my Moms gorgeous!?!? :o)]
