Today my parents celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary. I thank God for them and for their amazing example of love, faithfulness, and perseverance. I'm blessed to have such wonderful parents. Their marriage is a powerful testimony of God's grace and they are examples of the love of Jesus in all that they do. I love them so much and am grateful for being born into such a special family. I cannot imagine my life without them.
Thank you, Mom and Dad, for demonstrating what sacrificial love is - in a marriage and in a family.
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
