Yesterday I had the privilege of visiting a couple still in love after sixty-one years of married life. They are a joy to behold.
That visit brought to mind a sentence from one of Robert Schuller’s books, Living Powerfully One Day at a Time. It reads as follows:
…the source of real joy is real love, which tears you from your own projects to care about someone else; bearing another’s burdens, sharing yourself with another person alone; truly being an instrument of God’s love.
Everything about this couple reflected God’s love, especially their love for one another which was so evident in every word and look that they shared.
I would be remiss in not mentioning another couple I know who have been married the same length of time and are truly devoted as well.
It was a blessing to have all four of these people and their real love touch my life on the same day.
