29 years!

March 29, 2009 Suzie

This post is dedicated to my wonderful parents, Roger and Joy.

This day 29 years ago they got married! I am beyond blessed to have the privilege of being their daughter. They are two of the most amazing, godly, inspiring, incredible, people i know and i love them beyond words.

They haven’t been without their difficulties as a couple, as individuals, as a family but the way they have dealt with everything is so inspiring. They have always encouraged me and my sisters to pray, to seek God’s will in all they have done no matter how hard things have been, and at times they have!

A few special moments that come to mind; when I went to Brazil I needed encouragement, support, money, help with fundraising and all they did was incredible!! I remember conversations wth my mum before I went and they were conversations that I willl never forget. What a blessing! Throughout my time in Brazil, mum and dad sent me individual letters that were just beautiful. So different yet so awesome!

I love how close our family is, the bond we share and ultimately its all because of Jesus! He, by His amazing grace has loved us and brought each one of us into a personal relationship with Him and i thank God for these two incredible people who have helped lead us to Christ. Thank you Father.

As i lift them up before the throne of Grace i continue to pray that God would make them more the people He wants them to be and that they would imitate even more the most amazing marriage between Christ and His church.

If I ever am to be married I know that they are a couple that I would seek guidance and counsel from because the love between them is wonderful and beautiful. I pray for more couples like them to be raised up,, to show the way in these times when marriage is not seen as sacred and special in the same way as it was. They have shown me the beauty of it.

Thank you Father for the blessing that these parents are to me.

    I’m so thankful for Him for the example of your parents, and the blessing that they are to you! How long were you in Brazil for? I can’t remember. I love that your parents wrote to you there 🙂
