Who Are These People?~~~ Wednesday's Walk





Thirty Three Years Ago I Married My Prince Charming

Thirty three years ago I gave my life to him
And that is when true happiness was destined to begin

I had no way of knowing what my future now would hold
But I said the vows, and trusted him, his heart was made of gold

He gave me all I’d dreamed of,… a house,… a home,… true love
And little did I know back then that he was sent from God above

Security was something that I knew so little of
I’d struggled in my lifetime, and hardly kept my head above

At times I was a drowning,…bobbing up and down for air
Along came my prince charming, and he gave me so much care

He cared for my three children, and he raised them as his own
They had everything they needed up until they all were grown

He has loved all of their children, he is “Grandpa” to them all
Little did I know the blessings that would follow my heart’s fall

Yes I fell for this dear person and I’ve loved him all these years
And yes, we’ve had our problems, had some fights, and shed some tears

But we’re in it for the long haul, trusting Jesus as we live
This was not from the beginning, but our Lord said,…“I Forgive”

So now God is in our marriage blessing it from day to day
And I thank Him for “Prince Charming” the one with whom I pray

I love to pray together for the needs of those we love
Did I mention that this marriage was a gift from God above?

July 25th John and I celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. I thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of our wedding day, but I don't have any pictures scanned into my computer, so I thought that maybe I could take some pictures of some pictures! It really wasn't such a great idea because they didn't come out very good,...but I am going to post them anyway! ((smile))

We look at these pictures from when he was 30 and I was 25, and we hardly recognize ourselves. We joke around and say,..."Who are these people?" It sometimes seems like a lifetime ago,...and other times it just seems like yesterday! Isn't it funny how that can happen?

Ok, that's it for my Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane today. I hope you will join in by clicking on the button at the top, and adding your memory.

My beautiful momma! I thought the pictures turned out very nice. I'm so thankful to God for bringing Dad into our lives. I've watched you and Dad love each other more and more through the years.

Happy 33 years together!
I love you both so much!!!

Oh my goodness....Lynnette looks just like you in that wedding photo! AMAZING, but not surprising! You both are beautiful ladies inside and out, and you will never know the impact you and your family have had on me, thanks to the internet. I love you and all your family, and cannot wait until we meet....even if it's not this side of heaven! YOU, my dear friend, are my SISTER and we will spend eternity together! YEAH GOD!

Much love,

Lolli (aka Lisa)

I love the picture of a picture. That is actually what I did for my picture. I have never actually participated in Wednesday's Walk but felt drawn to do so today.

How wonderful is it to have that special someone to share your life with. I am still searching, but I am in no hurry. I am with a very wonderful man right now who may very well turn into my special someone. I will know when it happens. I think. :-)

Linda, I love the photos! The photos look fine. I used to do that too before I got my scanner and got it to working.

Happy Anniversary and many, many more!

Lovely, just lovely! Your words, the photos, your blog! I am always nourished a bit when I visit you, Linda. Thanks, too, for visiting me today and following my blog. I'm still a "newbie" with a full time job during the school year so I don't do as much as I would like. But I'm grateful to meet sweet and godly people like you! Have a blessed day.
