Happy 62nd anniversary to my incredible Grandparents, for the 9th of June! 62 years and still going strong <3
My mum and I were able to spend the evening of their anniversary with them, which was really special! They told us all sorts of stories from all those years ago, all about their wedding day - the dramas, the special moments, who was there, where they were married....
|Pity my grandpa wasn't looking... but aren't they lovely?!|
It hasn't all been smooth sailing - they've had some real hardships along the way, and they've had to work extremely hard for all they have now. But through it all, they've stuck by each other. They became Christians at the same time, after about 10 years of marriage. They struggled through my Grandma's years of ill health, and, in latter years, my Grandpa's as well. They brought up two beautiful daughters, and have seen their four grandchildren growing up, and now their 4 great-grandchildren too. They've had moments when they weren't each other's favourite people, but they've fought through it - divorce has never even been an option. They've learned to love each other more and more as they grow older together.
True love is definitely worth waiting for! I hope, one day, to have a love like my grandparents do <3. And true love is worth fighting for, once God brings it into your life. Feelings will only get you so far - true love takes work, commitment, and dedication. But it is so, so worth the fight!
And just to close, here is one of the most touching love stories I have ever seen...
Allow God to write you a love story based around Him. Don't settle for anything less than His best for your life <3
