August 8th, 1954, my parents were married in the parsonage of a little Nazarene Church in Marlow, Oklahoma. There is much I could share with you about them and the positive influence that they have had on the lives of our family and most anyone who’s ever known them….but I think the words below pretty much sum it up~
I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you invited me inside. When I needed clothes, you clothed me…
Whatever you did for one in need, you did for ME. (a paraphrase of a portion of Matthew 25)
Happy Sixtieth Wedding Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
Thank you both for all you do for others. Still. Much love and enjoy your celebration!

I, too, have parents married 63 years. Isn’t it a tremendous blessing? This is a lovely tribute to two beautiful people, Paula. I hope they are in good health and continuing to do well–and no more tornados in their town. ox
Congrats to your parents!! Awesome! My folks are well and as for tornadoes this year? I think since they put in a fraidy hole….it wished them all away! Have a great weekend ♥
So beautiful, in every way. Congratulations
Congratulations to your sweet parents. We just celebrated our 64th anniversary. I’d say we all are a rare breed these days.
When was your anniversary, Delores? And congrats to you both! So awesome.
I hope they have a wonderful anniversary!
They have had a fun anniversary all week long! Full of surprised…pretty cool. Thanks for your sweet wishes! ♥ Did your rain ever stop? 🙂
Oh yeah, turned totally off, almost. Half an inch yesterday, but just a few minutes after it quit, you could walk outside and the ground felt like we didn’t get anything. Bone dry here, crops are a sad state.
We have had a crazy summer with lots of rain and cooler than normal temps. Sure hope you get the rain you need soon. Farming seems to be a win or lose career….season by season. Sure appreciate our farmers.
Wow! Congrats to your parents.
Thank you! Will pass this along!
Happy Anniversary to your beautiful, loving parents!! What a milestone, and what a testament to their love. That said, they have a fantastic awesome daughter and for that we are all grateful!
Thank you, Mimi….am awesome milestone, for sure.
As for the awesome daughter….I guess you’ve met my sisters?! 🙂
She who wrote it, gets the kudos..(tho’ I’m sure your sisters are terrific too!!)
And… beautiful parents raise beautiful sons and daughters who go into the world and create more beauty — like you do!
Thank you Louise….I hope to make at least a smidge of the difference that they have in other people’s lives.
Happy weekend, my friend! ♥
Congratulations to your parents. They are so lucky to have had each other for all these years.
