Be Still My Heart!

Just 39 years ago today, my dear boyfriend, Phil, asked me to marry him. We were in the Rendlesham forest in England. A lovely spot between RAF Woodbridge and RAF Bentwaters bases where we both served/lived with US Air Force. As of today we are still happily married to each other. This evening he told me if he had to do it again, he would have both the ring and chocolate. Yep! I'd take both. Hopefully British chocolate. It's delicious!!

On Sunday evening, we were eating dinner out at St. Paul rodeo grounds before the rodeo. He was drinking from a can of Coke. He turned the can around and said, with a smile, "Here. This is for you!"  Now is that romantic or what? Capture the heart of the moment I did!! This grandma feels blessed!! 
Thank you, dear Lord, for the years you've given us together, serving each other and You, Lord!

How sweet! It's always special to see people still in love after so many years. Dennis and I will celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary in September. I think we got us a couple of "keepers" Becky!
Blessings, Betsy

Happy Engagement Anniversary! Congratulations.

Ours was 40 years back in March. We married 2 years later. Our first date was Sept. 20, 1975 to a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert, Day on the Green #6 at the Oakland Colosseum. Oh the memories we've created over the last 40 years, it became "Our Journey Through LIFE!".
