On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Friday Foto Friends and Celebrating a Happy August Anniversary!

Susan was the first girl my brother Phil ever brought  to meet the family - so we knew she was special! And she still is. How they met? They went to the same high school, but had never met. However, they both worked for a local, popular Mexican restaurant. My brother said the first time he saw Susan, he told his buddies "that is the girl I'm going to marry." Sixteen years old and he knew that.

With my parents on graduation day!



They were so young. But a match made in Heaven, I think. On that day, who knew what an incredible future lay ahead for them? 


Watching them as they matured together to face life circumstances that came their way and the way they dealt with hardship and the tenacity to keep on going still amazes me. But oh my goodness, in keeping with that verse from Psalm 90, God has blessed them many more days and times than they have been afflicted. Their lives and their testimony of God's faithfulness have touched and motivated and greatly affected countless lives of others. Truly the ripple effect! And on this their 39th wedding anniversary, I know it will continue to be so.

Happy Anniversary to you, Phil and Susan!
