40 years....tried and true

on may 13th....a very wonderful and momentous event took place.
my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

what an achievement to celebrate this day and age.
...and what a wonder considering they look like they ARE 40 years old!

i decided a small cake reception was in order.
i made them a two tier white cake with fresh anthurium flowers.
one tier had lemon curd filling...the other had strawberries and cream.
it turned out just right and it was quite delicious if i do say so myself. cute are they!!!?
the kids blocks put to good use.
mom and dad...
what a incredible example of love, patience, kindness and
long suffering ;-) you are to us!
i am constantly humbled by your generous spirits, helpful nature and
boundless encouragement you pour out on to our family.
God truly blessed me when he gave me the two of you as parents.
here's to many more happy years together.

1 corinthians 13
{the message}
Love never gives up.
   Love cares more for others than for self.
   Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
   Love doesn't strut,
   Doesn't have a swelled head,
   Doesn't force itself on others,
   Isn't always "me first,"
   Doesn't fly off the handle,
   Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
   Doesn't revel when others grovel,
   Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
   Puts up with anything,
   Trusts God always,
   Always looks for the best,
   Never looks back,
   But keeps going to the end.
