Teach my heart O God!

Saturday mama and I renewed our wedding vows. Mama wore her original wedding veil. She also carried the bible she had with her at our first wedding. Mama has been so precious to papa.

I cried or smiled through most of the ceremony - except the last few minutes. I had to sit down - I became very emotional and had an anxiety attack of sort - almost dropped to the floor.

I have been praying, Lord, teach my Heart O God to be the loving husband that I want to be for mama. She is my best friend. I am so blessed.

What a precious picture! It's good to see genuine love last through the years, with a longing to be even "more" for each other. God bless you both with many more happy and healthy years ahead! You are a great example to those who follow in your footsteps, and those who follow your blog!

It is good too see after 44 years the love you too share with each other, it radiates whenever you too are together, you and Judy are examples of a Godly marriage....
