Made it to 42!

07 Sep

42 years ago today, Bronwen and I were married in Nelson. 2 years ago there was considerable doubt that we would make it to this anniversary. We thank God for His grace and confirm that, in spite of the health battles we’ve fought over the past 2 years, God saves the best wine till last. (John 2:10)

    Happy 42nd wedding anniversary to you both.
    Doug I hope you are feeling less tired now you have had the blood transfusions.
    I remember your 40th wedding anniversay at Hanmer. We all sang you a song…’40 years of marriage, 40 years of bliss…’
    While tongue firmly in cheek for some of the lines we are glad to hear that you are celebrating 42 years.
    Abby is busy studying for exams at present (last ones of the internals on Monday and Tuesday). NCEA level 3 4 weeks into next term. Have applied for Otago with a view to studying medicine. She is being baptised next Sunday at Burnside Elim. Philip and I are well and involved and so for now think we are where we should be. Once Abby is settled in Dunedin would like to review things but God knows best so will be patient. Sounds as though Ab is doing well. How is Phoebe?
    Love and prayers to you both. Gill
