70th Wedding Anniversary



He was 19, a high school senior.  She was 15, a freshman.  One morning, he saw her in the school bus.  He said to himself, "She's the one I'm going to marry."  That was in August. By December, they were wed.  Fast forward, 70 years later, 8 children (5 girls, 3 boys), numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great, great  grandchildren (a total of 94 descendants and still counting), they're still together..... celebrating their 70th Wedding Anniversary.  He's 89, she's 85, still smiling, joking and very much in love! 

To start the year, before church service, we had a small cake and punch reception for a dear, dear couple in our church. What a wonderful example of love and faithfulness! Happy Anniversary Steve and Mavis!

What a love story! It inspires us all, and makes us realize just what's important in life -- not material things, but a grand love that never ends.
