I so love to recollect these memories as they add to the deep love I have for my husband and how the Lord brought him into my life! It is an anniversary of huge importance to me! Unknowingly I went to the wedding of a good friend and her brother was there to minister to my needs, when I sprained my ankle at the wedding dance, and I thought... "he is so easy to talk to and so very nice to me." My heart melted when I looked into those brown eyes and that continues to this day! He knew of my story of my entire family entering the Catholic Church, and that was very special to him. Huge in our relationship as he had told his sisters that he would not marry anyone who wasn't Catholic!
It is right to praise you in Zion/and Marshall, O God.
You have crowned the year with your bounty,
and your paths overflow with a rich harvest;
untilled meadows overflow with it,
and rejoicing clothes the hills.
Psalm 65 from mass today speaks of the bounty we are blessed with when we are open to LIFE and raising LIGHTS for the world!
Jesus, LIFE is rich with your love and care for our every needs. I am forever touched by your plan for my life here in Marshall, MN... planted beside my husband and better half, Patrick! We are filled with so much gratitude for all that you have given us... 7 in heaven praying for us and 5 with us now welcoming new life into their marriages. Hallel and John praying for us each day, and looking to love and serve you with their lives. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
Three weeks after we met at Margie's wedding... head high on the 4th of July! A year with more heat than this one, but here we go into the 90s today! Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
Yes, how I long for this to become the truth for us!
