Sunday was a very special day for my family. Kyle’s parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. We had an enjoyable day of celebrating with them at an open house as well as a family dinner. My in-laws have definitely had some struggles in their life – deployment, job change, health scares. But through it all, they kept each other as a priority, and they remembered to love each other as well as God.
With the escalating divorce rates in this country, I am afraid that 50th wedding anniversary celebrations may become rare, as opposed to the norm. In our disposable society, anything that takes a bit of work is often cast aside. A song that they have played on Christian radio for the past several months addresses this.
If you have not heard the song “Restore” by Chris August, I think you will be blessed. A great reminder that through Christ anything is possible – even five decades of marriage!
