Not only have they stayed married for over 65 years (making certain their children weren't casualties of divorce) they taught me to have unshakable faith in an unchanging God. To know that, in the darkest of times, he is still good. No matter who leaves, he is still faithful. No matter who lies, he is still truth. No matter who dies, he can still heal.
In the sunshine, he's there. In the valley, he's there. On the mountain, he's there. In the desert, he's there. Though wars rage around me, his grace can sustain me, and his peace can cover my soul.
Without their fingerprints of faith, stamped indelibly on my life, only God knows how poor I'd be. ♦
