Happy Anniverary

Today is my Grandma and Paw-Paw's 67th Anniversary. They have had such a wonderful marriage, one Aaron and I only dream of having. My Grandma told me the story of how they started dating and it's a great one. I'll try to tell it as best as I can:

Martha (my Grandma) was in high school dating a boy and that boy ended up wrecking his car. His dad grounded him and the time he was grounded overlapped a school dance, The boy then asked his best friend Lavon (my Paw-Paw) to take Martha to the dance. I am sure Lavon had no hesitation, but he did what a best friend would do and took Martha and that is where it all started.

They had three children together, 9 grandchildren and now 7 great grandchildren. God has blessed them I'd say

Above all, clothe yourselves with love,
which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
Colossians 3:14
