MY TRUE LOVE!

Me and my true love, Pete...with Krys and Giselle in the background

Have YOU found your true love yet? I found mine in 1969, married him in 1971, and after 7 rocky years, WE found our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. No, things were not perfect from that time on...but they were better than they ever HAD been, and were getting better by the day.
Are things perfect now, 27 years after we got saved? No, not by a long shot. But this we know...we are committed to each other, thru thick or thin. There is no turning back. We have set our hands to the plow, and continue looking straight ahead. Would ANY of this be possible without that day in 1978...no. WE know how bad things were, and they were not getting any better. Divorce would have been the next step. Thank God for those believers God put in our paths those many years ago. A Christian marriage can still be a struggle...but without Christ, nearly impossible. Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will look strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.
Pin It!

Amen! Going on 27 years now with my husband...but we came close to parting ways in 1984 after just 3.5 years...if it had not been for Christ I would not be where I am today with my beautiful family! God Bless YOU!

Oh My! Decided to look at some of your original post! Amen! I have been saved for over 20 years~not always depending on the Lord as I should~until 3 years ago this month~my aunt died and then my step-mother. The Lord was waiting for me~patiently, loving me and calling me back to Him without condemination. My husband is also born again, and I am SO grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ!
