Faith: A Love Story

February 14, 2011

Our story started when I was 16... he was the trumpet player in the band and I was one of the baton twirlers. We enjoyed dating on and off through out our high school career. He a year older in grade. I don't know remember the exact moment that I thought he would be the one I would eventually marry, but back in my mind it was always there. A high school love story... After he joined the Marine Corpes we got married. When the pastor told us about the high divorce rates, he asked us how we knew that we wouldn't be one of the statistics... My darling husband said "because we have faith". And faith has seen us through some of the happiest and most difficult times, when he was sent to the Gulf War, deaths and every day life. But through it all I have loved this man. My love has grown seeing him become a father to our two children. This year we will celebrate 25 years together. Not all easy years, but we have the faith that it will last through the happy and the sad times. Our faith is as strong as ever!

Love you babe!

Well of coarse he adores you, you can twirl a baton! How many girls can say that besides you and me? Very few! Bless you for being married into the armed forces. It's a hard but rewarding life. Best wishes to you both-cindy

If marriage was easy I'm sure everyone would still be together. Faith is truly a big part in the picture, but true love also has a lot to do with it. Commitment to our vow's also make a difference..guess us long married couples really paid attention..
Have a Happy Valentine's Day..
Yours sincerely,
