Happy 28th Anniversary Daddy & Mommy!

Today, is our parents 28th Anniversary! As the heritage and quiver of our parents today we are rising up and calling our mother blessed (Proverbs31:28) and speaking with the enemies (strangers) in the gates for our father (Psalm 127:5). Below is an edited (oil painting) picture of our Anniversary card for Daddy and Mommy. Next is a current picture of them at Multanomah Falls, and lastly is a collage of two recent pictures and two pictures from their wedding!
Happy Anniversary!!!
We love you Daddy & Mommy!

Here is a hymn about the marriage supper of the Lamb of God!

Here, O My Lord, I See Thee

Words By: Horatius Bonar, 1855 and Musci By: Edward Dearle, 1920

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face;
Here would I touch and handle things unseen;
Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace,
And all my weariness upon Thee lean.

This is the hour of banquet and of song;
This is the heavenly table spread for me;
Here let me feast, and feasting, still prolong
The hallowed hour of fellowship with Thee.

Here would I feed upon the bread of God,
Here drink with Thee the royal wine of heaven;
Here would I lay aside each earthly load,
Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.

I have no help but thine; nor do I need
Another arm save thine to lean upon;
It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed;
My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone.

Mine is the sin, but thine the righteousness:
Mine is the guilt, but thine the cleansing
Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace;
Thy Blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord my God!

Too soon we rise; the symbols disappear;
The feast, though not the love, is past and gone.
The bread and wine remove; but Thou art here,
Nearer than ever, still my shield and sun.

Feast after feast thus comes and passes by;
Yet, passing, points to the glad feast above,
Giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy,
The Lamb’s great bridal feast of bliss and love.

Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. ~Revelations 19:9b

Have you been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb? Are you written in the Lamb's book of life?

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. ~Acts 16:31

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. ~Romans 10:9
