My parent's 50th Anniversary party was a success. I am physically exhausted. We did a 50's theme and it was great. I will post some pictures later when I get them. We had a 15 minute power point presentation about their life. Most of it was pictures of us as kids. My parent's received a standing ovation at the end. It was emotional. Someone told me that my Dad even had tears but he would never admit to it.
I will repeat from a previous post that they have not had a marriage full of greatness. It has been a marriage full of strife and tribulation. Through all this they remained faithful to their vows before God and stayed true to each other. We are their greatest accomplishments. They take pride in us. I had one of the ladies from our church sing the following song from Steve Green.
HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH
Here we are at the start committing to each other
By His word and from our hearts
We will be a family in a house that will be a home
And with faith we'll build it strong
We'll build a household of faith
That together we can make
And when the strong winds blow it won't fall down
As one in Him we'll grow and the whole world will know
We are a household of faith
Now to be a family we've got to love each other
At any cost unselfishly
And our home must be a place that fully abounds with
A reflection of His face
That is what we were raised with... A Household of Faith.
It was a fantastic evening with over 80 people in attendance. What a tribute to their marriage.
The food was fantastic. My alfredo sauce was superb, if I say so myself.
Fantastic night, fantastic memories.
