Traveling ancient roads together

Fifty six years ago today I married a wonderful young lady who has been by my side all this time. She wasn’t always able to travel with me, especially when our children were young, but she has shared many trips with me. She often comments about how important it is for couples to travel when they are young. That, of course, is the most difficult time for those with children. We still enjoy the memories we made on our first trip to Rome, Athens/Corinth, Egypt, Lebanon, Damascus, Jordan, and Israel in 1967.

How can you stay together for fifty six years? We made a commitment to each other and to God when we exchanged our vows. That’s it.

  1. Congratulations! You are both special people and I appreciate what you do in God’s service. May He give you many more wonderful years together!

  2. Congratulations on these many years of being “joint-heirs together of the grace of life.” May God continue to bless you for good.

  3. Congratulations on your anniversary!

    What I am also amazed at, is the my wife, Mary, and I made EXACTLY the same trip from late December 1966 to June 1967!
