“One thing you can count on is the way I’ll love you.”

Today, January 31, 2016, the hubby and I celebrate 29 years of marriage!!
It seems so surreal!! It definitely doesn’t seem like we have been together that long! We’ve lived and enjoyed so many blessings, as well as experienced many difficult and challenging years together. But through it all, God has been with us, guiding us, giving us His wisdom and love.
I am so thankful for this man in my life!! He is my best friend, my prayer partner, the one I love and who has loved me through thick and thin. 
Through the years of blogging, I’ve shared posts on our anniversaries. Each year, I found many reasons to celebrate and shared pictures, stories, and videos.

  1. I love this Ann. We are coming up on 45 years of marriage. Renewal of vows and family party seem to be what I keep hearing. Hubby wants no pictures on the web and children feel the same. So you have to picture us with 3 X 2 kids plus 7 grandchildren.

    1. Wow...45 years!! I hope to be able to celebrate my 45th, God willing, someday!! Congrats to you and your hubby and all your children and grands, as well!!

  2. Happy for you. AND when seeing one of my favorite photos to see at the Oregon Pacific area... I think ... made me smile. My husband and I became 30 on Sept. 21, and we had a wonderful time! Given a gift of God is a huge blessing. As I said, happy for you. Your photos are wonderful and, as I said, made me smile. Bless you...

    1. You are correct, caryjo. The top photo was taken on our vacation last summer on the Oregon Coast...loved it SO much!! Happy belated 30th to you, too! A lasting love is truly a gift from God!!

  3. So awesome, Ann! Congratulations to you and Ken! You guys are an inspiration!

    Love, Joan

  4. Congratulations Ann! Rev and I often say that a wonderful marriage is one of God's greatest blessings. We will celebrate 44 years next month. I am so blessed. So happy for you and Ken too! Blessings!

  5. Congratulations! What a sweet treasury of memories you have compiled!
