In the Forever Light of Love: Our 33rd Wedding Anniversary


When the last light

of our breath

has set,

we’ll fly into

Forever Love


Wendy / 2016

Last Sunday I was weary to the bone from the previous day’s hike, and my head craved close contact with a pillow because osteoarthritis pain had bullied me the night before. So when my husband suggested we go for a short evening walk at a local park, I hesitated.

But I’ve learned to follow most of my husband’s wise suggestions. I can’t count the multitude of times I’ve been glad I said, “Yes–let’s do it.”

And that includes when I said “I do,” on August 19, 1983. I would have missed out on one of the best and biggest adventures of all.




Thank you, Ian, for getting us out to witness another incredible sunset together. I want to fly off into the Forever Light of Love with you. Happy 33rd wedding anniversary. xoxo

What’s your most memorable sunset? I’m nosy-to-know.  

Have you visited my latest post on the other blog? I share a bit about memoir writing (and more about my husband’s wisdom). And at the end of it there’s a link to a podcast that includes a quote of mine. I was honored to be invited to share a “From the Deep” story on the awesome writing encouragement podcast I  listen to.  

Here’s the link to my other blog post:

Better is One Book in God’s Library than Thousands Elsewhere 

Delight yourself in the LORD

and he will give you

the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4

(This was our wedding verse in 1983.)
