Thirty Three Years of I Do

Elvis died that year.

1977...the same year “Star Wars” made movie history, “You Light Up My Life” tied for song of the year, a postage stamp cost 13¢, and gas averaged around 62¢ a gallon...

Paisley and polyester lived in the closets...a Georgia native sat in the oval office, and everyone tuned in to watch The Love Boat...

On August 9th of that year...two shy teenagers...eloped...sort of

If you are interested in...the rest of the story...it can be found here

Thirty three years ago, we said those two life changing words...I do...

And we have kept saying them all these years...

I do want to get a motorcycle...

I do not want to ride your motorcycle...

I do think we need to clean up the garage...

I do not know what to do with all your stuff...

I do like to tease you about EVERYTHING...

I do not like to be picked on all the time...

and the most important I DO...

I do love you more now than ever before...

I do thank God for you everyday...

Happy anniversary to the love of my life...

My Ricky...

Awesome Karen...happy anniversary to you & Rick!

I can't believe that you had all these facts. I clicked over to read the full story beyond the "do's", I did not notice the "do not" until this read through...

I was married the year before you, the 1st of this month too! And we did elope to Las Vegas...more in my testimony (not really)!

You have such a way with words! May you and that sweet love enJOY a blessed anniversary and more do's in the next 33 years of love!

Do you love Elvis songs or "Light up my life"? I'm praying God lights up your life and "gives you hope to carry on" for many joy filled, blissful moments!!! Love ya'
Happy Anniversary Karen & Rick & many more...
In Christ's love,
Peggy
