Celebrating 15 Blessed Years



Today is our anniversary---15 golden years!

We will be celebrating at a quiet, romantic get-away---a bed and breakfast with a private lake.

Here's a poem:

A Christian Home


O give us homes built firm upon the Savior,
Where Christ is head and Counselor and Guide;
Where every child is taught His love and favor
And give his heart to Christ, the crucified:
How sweet to know that through his footsteps waver
His faithful Lord is walking by his side!

O give us homes with Godly fathers, mothers,
Who always place heir hope and trust in Him:
Whose tender patience turmoil never bothers,
Whose calm and courage trouble cannot dim;
A home where each finds joy in serving others,
And love still shine, tho'days be dark and grim.

O Lord, our God, our homes are thine forever!
We trust to Thee their problems, toil, and care;
Their bonds of love no enemy can sever
It Thou are always Lord and Master there:
Be thou the center of our least endeavor--
Be Thou our Guest, our hearts and homes to share.

--Barbara B. Heart

  1. The Lord could not have chosen a more suitable helper for me. It is truly a blessing to be married to such a Godly, Beautiful, and Intelligent woman. You truly complete all aspects of my life this side of Heaven.

    Thank you for 15 wonderful years of marriage, and may the next 15 be more fruitful as we begin living out the remainder of our earthly lives together.

    You're more lovely today than the day we met, and you were quite lovely even then!

    It's an honor to serve, protect, lead, and provide for such a woman as you. I love you more each day, and look forward to enjoying the fruit of my garden at our romantic get-away!

    Lots of Love...Your Husband,
    Steve

    Congratulations!! May you experience the next 15 more blessed than the first. What a testimony in this day to see a husband and wife committed to one another and joyfully rearing children for the kingdom. You both are dear to our family and we are thankful for our friendship with the Fuentes.
