25th Anniversary

I have a good friend who often brings flowers into the church for Sunday service.  This morning I was amazed to see what she had brought in:  the same kind of flowers my
husband and I had for our wedding—pink gladolias.  They were BEAUTIFUL.

I knew there had been a death in her family, and I assumed these were from the funeral.

I whispered to one of my sons and told him about the coincidence with excitement.

When my second son sat down, I explained to him too!  Maybe she would let us take them home, in honor of our 25th anniversary this week, do you think?

When my husband sat down, I pointed it out to him!  And he said…"I bought them for you, Dear!”

Oh, my.

We had the rare occasion of special music today in church, and…she sang the same song we had sung at our wedding!

How wonderful IS that, anyway?



  1. That is SO cool, Gaye!  I saw those Sunday evening and wondered where they had come from. And I missed the song!  What was it?! 
    Our anniversary was July 5 (21 years) and I gave Glenn a typed-up and nicely-presented copy of our wedding service, including the vows and small sermon, and the words to the hymns: 
    Processional "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty." 
    "Great is Thy Faithfulness" (which we put new words to for a baptism hymn we have used for all the children and has been adopted in our former Presbyterian churches). 
    "O Father, All Creating." 
    Recessional "Lead On, O King Eternal" (which is kinda funny if you read all the words thinking about the wedding recessional..."The crown awaits the conquest...." )

  2. Congratulations! We had our 25th this past May. I'm sure you and your sweetie look just as young as we still do What was your special song?-Renee

  3. Oh, how sweet. Congratulations on 25 years. That is terrific.
