34 years

Today, the 19th of August and it is our 34th Anniversary. We were married at 11 in the morning in Columbus Ohio at First Community Church. I remember it was a warm beautiful summer morning. The big trees in front of the church shadowing the walk and it was so wonderful. I wore the dress John's Mother wore. My cousins and John's sister were my attendants. His brothers and a cousin stood up for John. His grandfather, . John C. Taylor and my minister friend, Richard Horn were the ones who officiated. My father walked me down the aisle.
We made our vows and then we read a paper we had written. Part of it was thanking those who had brought us this far and also that we would serve God by serving others. Who knew? Who knew--God did---that's who.

So here we are 29 years for John serving as a pastor and 28 for me serving both ordination anniversaries in September. Who knew

My how time flies when you are having a good time. That goes for our life together, our wonderful now grown children and our work for God.

I pray we have many many many more years for all of these.

God abide
