I have just been in a 120 year birthday party, hold your hat on it was two people each celebrating 60! They are an old couple who we have known for a while, the kind of lovely people that you just consider yourself lucky to know. I thought about how many years work those two have put down together. Then since we know them from church I thought about some of the invisible stuff like how much love they have shown others! How much encouragement and comfort they have spread around to others. And how much they have loved each other.
Couples who have fallen in love and manage to stay in love, what a gift, and how rare. I am probably in this corner as I have just celebrated my 21st year married!
