In the Forever Light of Love: Our 33rd Wedding Anniversary

When the last light

of our breath

has set,

we’ll fly into

Forever Love

together.

Wendy / 2016

Last Sunday I was weary to the bone from the previous day’s hike, and my head craved close contact with a pillow because osteoarthritis pain had bullied me the night before. So when my husband suggested we go for a short evening walk at a local park, I hesitated.

But I’ve learned to follow most of my husband’s wise suggestions. I can’t count the multitude of times I’ve been glad I said, “Yes–let’s do it.”

And that includes when I said “I do,” on August 19, 1983. I would have missed out on one of the best and biggest adventures of all.

Thank you, Ian, for getting us out to witness another incredible sunset together. I want to fly off into the Forever Light of Love with you. Happy 33rd wedding anniversary. xoxo

Sunset Blessings ~ Wendy

What’s your most memorable sunset? I’m nosy-to-know.  

Have you visited my latest post on the other blog? I share a bit about memoir writing (and more about my husband’s wisdom). And at the end of it there’s a link to a podcast that includes a quote of mine. I was honored to be invited to share a “From the Deep” story on the awesome writing encouragement podcast I  listen to.  

Here’s the link to my other blog post:

Better is One Book in God’s Library than Thousands Elsewhere 

Delight yourself in the LORD

and he will give you

the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4

(This was our wedding verse in 1983.)

  1. WOW! Wendy these captures are so very beautiful, nothing better than to soak up such a view. I have a couple of really memorable sunrises and sunsets. I walked to the top of Mount Sinai in Egypt and witnessed the sun in all its glory rise up, so big and bold. People were praying, all walks of life had made the journey. It will stay with me forever. Sunrises I recall an amazing one over the Grand Canyon. But even at home they appear brilliant and often and I am always in awe of nature. Happy day to you.

    1. Dear Kath, thank you for sharing those beautiful moments with us. I can’t imagine how incredible the sunrise in Egypt must have been. And I love how each one, no matter where it is, is unique—like us. 🙂 Blessings as you continue to create your lovely artwork.

  5. I’m going to add an apple to the bowl ❤ (I love that). Can I do sunrise? My most memorable sunrise … in Navarre, Florida, just about to leave for Disney. And we see people out swimming in the ocean with their tiny dogs … and then we see sharks … and we remember the hotel people saying not to go in the water early morning because that's when sharks feed. Oh, mercy. Congratulations on your anniversary, sweet friend. We serve an amazing God. His mercies are new every single morning. ❤

    1. What a delicious apple, dear Shelli. Thank you. ❤ You have the gifted eye of an editor. I'm still amazed how you spotted the shark fin in my video. 🙂 I'm hoping to catch a few sunrise shots this weekend when we get away to a beachfront cabin. Please pray that I don't sleep in. xo

  6. Happy Anniversary! I think we might have had this realization before, but you share an anniversary date with my dear parents (49 years for them!)! Also, Psalm 37:4 has been one of my favorites for a long time.

    May this year of marriage be even richer and more joyful, as you walk side by side!

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
