Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

Marriage Markers

How did we get here so fast? Seems like just yesterday we took those vows, praying they would last a lifetime. Dave and I gratefully reached a milestone this month. Forty-eight years of marriage.

We drove  just a few miles south to beautiful Tygart Lake Lodge near Grafton WV, to celebrate this momentous event.

The view from our room was both quiet and spectacular—showcasing both sunrise and sunset, over the beautiful lake nestled between the Appalachian Mountains.

How could I not capture this silent beauty with photo and penned words on paper?

Silent voice of morning
Brushing, blending colors
Shading, enhancing, reflecting,
Proclaiming—  I Am Creator God

 Silent voice of creation
Awakening, transforming, shouting,
Open your eyes, your heart, your mouth,
Praise Me— I AM Creator God


Silent voice of Maker
Speaking to hearts looking up
Refreshing, restoring, recreating,
Praising— Joy of Creator God


Dave and I did come home refreshed and rejoicing; after taking time to remember the years God has given us. We dare not boast in ourselves however.  We are still a work in progress and grateful for the three cord strand of love that holds us together!


We do boast in a perfect Heavenly Father; who loves us perfectly and continues to teach us how to love one another. We give God the Glory. We want our lives to reflect His story.

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (Genesis 2:18 NLT).
