Love Still Remains

Lovebug and I will be celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary on Monday. Wow, that seems so unreal, and it makes me so very happy. We were talking about it last night, sharing memories of all the things we have been through. I said to him, " My looks have really changed over the years, I lost my hair, and my eyebrows. I said, I sure do look different. He looked me right in the eye, and said these words, " That is not true, when I look at you, I still see the beautiful woman that I married 24 years ago, except you are more beautiful now. My heart melted like an m&m, and we embraced. Love still very much remains at our home, praise God.

This is love:)
Once, after being married about 15 yrs, we visited the ex-wife who had lost alot of weight and looked great, upon leaving, hubby turned to me and said "Wow, she looks really OLD doesn't she?"
I melted! I guess since we have grown old 'together' we don't notice as much.
A couple that has love of God together is way ahead of the game! Congratulations to you both:)
Enjoy your anniv!

Ah, how sweet!

I love the header on the top of your page. I had just stood up and stretched while your page was loading and turned around and was amazed. We stretch to be more confortable and we stretch out our arms to praise our Savior. :)

A husbands love for HIS wife is amazing! I was once complaining about my weight and how I felt so unattractive and my sweet Steve said "Honey God made me addicted to you". Isn't that great! Our husbands see us through the eyes of God. They don't see what we see! I am so thankful!
