GGs 65th wedding anni

Can I just say WOW. 65 years of marriage...to the same person! I hope and pray that Carl and I get to experience that some day too (only 56 years to go). Just amazing! GGs asked me to sing a song at their reception and my mom and I chose "Find us Faithful." Here are the words:

We're pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road
And those who've gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace


Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives


CHORUS:
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey


Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful


After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we've left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find


So, I made it to the third verse and then Calah starts walking towards me just when I'm about to sing the line, "And our children sift through all we've left behind.." and cue the tears. Bah! Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Molin for being such an incredible example to our family, friends, and loved ones. We love you!
