What does it take to sustain those number of years in a marriage. Well one married couple of 50 years summed it up by simply saying "Prayer, Patience, Compromise, Understanding and Commitment.

During the reception of the wedding we did this weekend we asked all the married couples to stand because the bride had a gift for the longest marrried couple. Out of all the weddings I've ever coordinated or attended this one had the most long term married couples in attendance.

As the count down of years began the joy of love filled the room with each couple who was still standing. The greatest number of years achieved was 50 with 3 other couples holding the torch of love and marriage for 47, 43 and 33 years. The youngest married couple besides the newlyweds of the day had 5 years in.

This portion of the reception was such a very touching and simply amazing moment. It warms my heart when you hear the stories of marriages that stood the test of time and continue to strive for a happy and loving marriage.

I haven't made the matrimonial commitment yet in life but when I do, I hope to honor the sanctity with longevity and a life long committed celebration of love and life with my mate.

To all you wonderful married couples out there, continue to love and honor one another....Wishing you many many wonderful blessed years!!!
 
 
Water your dreams with worry/fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism/solutions and you will cultivate success! Be in the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success and nurture your dream"- Lao Tzu

Monday (Moon-day) has the energy of the ultimate nurturer. How will you nurture 3 dreams that need my love and attention?
 
 
Brand New Day by Karen Clark Sheard ft Yolanda Adams

YOLANDA:
You may have done
Some things that you're not
Too proud of, at one point in your life
Well, you're just one good prayer away
From living again
Starting today

CHORUS:
It's a brand new day
Spread the news, go tell a friend
It's alright to love, its okay to live again
Never mind your faults
What you've done or
Where you've been
It's what's in your heart
It's all that matters in the end
It's a brand new day

KAREN:
Maybe you were involved
In a love gone bad before
And ever since then
You've been bitter and scorn
All those bad feelings
You no longer need to hold
'Cause we're in with the new
Out with the old

CHORUS:

YOLANDA:
Things that made you angry in your past
KAREN:
Now you look at them, and you can laugh
YOLANDA:
Cause they don't
And they won't
KAREN
Matter anymore

CHORUS
[repeat]
 
 
Layin low, rest and pause
Sleeping long, slow motion
Gonna do, shoulda, coulda
Woulda done, excuses

Chorus
What are you afraid of?
Don't you know what you are made of/
One of God's greatest creations
Take this invitation now

Get up, 'cause you can't stop
Get up, got a lot to do
24 hours, almost gone

Get up, don't sit back
Get up. if you wanna get there
Clocks don't stop and time won't wait

He said, she said
They said, what do you say
It's your dreams, your choice
Your time and your life
So don't you, don't you miss it

"Chorus"

Welcome to the rest of your life
From now on, just try
To live more, want more, work a little harder
Dance more, laugh more, be a little smarter
Hug a little longer, love a little stronger
You've been down but now it's time to

"Chorus"
