Two weeks ago, I visited my family in Seattle because my grandparents were celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary … did you catch that? Not 75th birthday, but 75th wedding anniversary! How often do you hear that?
My grandparents are probably one of the most humble people and I have always been inspired by them. But with this diamond anniversary celebration, it reminded me of how blessed I am to have such examples, not only in ministry, but in their marriage.
We had 4 generations sleeping in pretty much one house from great grandparents to great grandkids. It was truly a great time. We had a special wedding anniversary worship service at a local church for them and at the end of the service, when they were walking down the aisle, hand in hand, I couldn’t have been more moved by the fact that 75 years ago, they walked down an aisle, making a promise to each other and to God. Well, God honored that promised and they did too.
Lord, thank you for your faithfulness upon the Chung family.
