50th Wedding Celebration

Posted on July 13, 2016 at 6:40 AM


How many times can I say “God is good?” I know, but He is so good!! The kids threw a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for us yesterday. It was awesome! There were about 70 friends there who we’ve had over the 50 years. So many memories! So many connections! It was a true joy to be surrounded by them all in one room to celebrate with us.!

God had been working on my heart to give a salvation message at the party. It was a scary concept, but as I became more convinced that it was what God wanted, I said OK, and Holy Spirit and I wrote it out. 

Now the enemy did not want that to happen; he would tell me ‘You really should not do it. What will your friends think?’ Then on the day before the party, we found out that the place had no sound equipm“Lord, if You want me to speak the message, then I need a microphone.“ He put the idea of a Disc Jockey into my mind. As Bill and I headed out to the ent, no sound boards, nothing to play music. . . no microphone to speak into. I said,gym, my original ‘panic’ mellowed to a trust in God. While at the gym, I asked if anyone knew a DJ? Well it turns out one of the workers I had never met before, was a wedding planner. So I asked her for a name of a good, reasonably priced, DJ. She immediately came up with a name. I called him and left a message.


A little while later he returned the call and we got set up for the party. I know God set it up. He wanted us to have Ben. I don’t know all the reasons why, but Ben felt it was a special engagement just for him too. We blessed him with his fee; and perhaps that was part of it; he also really liked the salvation talk I spoke. Young Ben was blessed by the people and the friendships he watched as the day progressed. He loved the music we chose. It became a win~win situation all the way around, and we gave God the glory!


Before we renewed our vows with our Pastor, I spoke to the group. In a nutshell~ I told them that we love them so much and how God loves us all uniquely, and how we wanted to spend our eternity in heaven with them; however one needed to accept Christ’s gift of salvation before that could happen. Revelation tells about the end of time on this earth, and those who disdain God and reject Jesus will end up in the lake of fire.

*********************************************************

And with you, my friends, I also ask you to choose life:

Deuteronomy 30:19

I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you

that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses;

therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.

*********************************************************


What a whirlwind it was with so many dear friends from past years blended with the new ones that are so special to us in recent years. It felt like our history passed before our eyes in the people who were there, for each person, each couple, brought wonderful memories with them. It became riding a train through our past, and each stop opened up a vista of good times. It is hard to put into words, but it was a marvelous party. We are so thankful for our 3 daughters who despite there own busy schedules, managed to plan this delightful day!


We are so thankful to our God Who planned it with them and filled the atmosphere with His love and joy. He was there enjoying the party too, because He loved seeing us having such a beautiful time, and He got the glory!

Yes, He is a good God who loves us each uniquely. Come my friends, if you have not yet chosen to accept Jesus as your Savior, take the step today! It will improve your life on earth and guarantee your eternity is heaven! I love you and can't wait to meet you on the other side!
