" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
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 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

It's New Year's Eve !


And that means that, as of 7:30 p.m., I've been married 33 years !
(By the way, if you've read my entire profile, you'll notice that I love Dudley Moore movies........looking at this old photo of hubby, I think I see where that infatuation began !)

What a night that was.........a rare Tennessee ice storm hit the night before, which meant that several people who had planned to come to the wedding just weren't able to get there. Unfortunately, this included hubby's parents !
After the ceremony, everyone left in a hurry, as it was so cold..........that left us to get into my old Nova and make it to our waiting rented trailer ....... and my car wouldn't start !
There we were, in the parking lot of the little country church, all alone on the coldest night of the year ! Blessedly, the car started after about 3 minutes of panic (and no cell-phones back then, not that I have one NOW !)
But the wedding did take place and, as the old saying goes,.........the rest is history.......ALOT OF HISTORY !

Still, I'm happy to be among that ever decreasing number of marriages that lasted. Hubby says that he doesn't remember getting married, so I thought I'd better post a photo and let him know that I have witnesses !
Enjoy YOUR New Year's eve, as we approach a whole new decade and many changes in the New Year, 2010. Our pastor pronounced, "2010, the year we bring the family in!" That's what I want !
So be safe, and be thankful, for this years miracles and memories ! God Bless you ALL !
