|-.A)fO*e (la.) Upper D*i ttturtdey, StpV 23, 1965 THIS YEAR WHEN OUR FAMILY celebrates its holidays, *e hive a rather special *-ed<Jiti£ anriiversary to go along with the three birthdays. It's our Silver one and although -*-e don't expect to do much celebrating »1th so man> of our family and friends far **»>, still twenty-five years is too long a time to fail to make some mention of it if only to say, "By golly, we made it!" - o - WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE WERE getting into that beautiful September day when *e promised to spend the rest of our lives together. It was a home wedding. Rev. Charles Pfieffer officiated, Marion Corey Rekers and Jim Bishop attended us, brother Curly played the wedding music and sister Betty sarig. The Parks, Frank Shilts, Pollards and Clive Stewarts se~ved the luncheon and Bill Dau, Sr. was there to take movies. - o - WE NEVER DREAMED THEN, we'd be celebrating our Silver wedding in Florida. In fact, we never even particularly wanted to go to Florida, but here we are living and loving it! And during our twenty-fifth year of marriage we've seen several people in Florida who were connected with out wedding day - the mothers of both the bride and the groom, Jim Bishop, Curly Pratt and Bill Dan. Rev. Pfieffer also lives in Florida. He made the papers when John Glenn worshipped at his church just before he started his historical orbit. We can say the Rev. Pfieffer also put us in orbit and we've been going round and round ever since! - o - WE DIDN'T KNOW 25 YEARS AGO that the "worse" in "for better or for worse" could get quite so bad as it did; on the other hand, a lot of the joys in our life so far have been better than we could possibly anticipate. I didn't know that what happens to one person, either for good or bad, could not help but affect the other If they are married. - o - WE DIDN'T THINK WE COULD possibly be any happier than we were as newly-weds. As I think back, we were probably pretty sickening with all our hand-holding, but after all we fully expected (along with about 50 million other newlyweds) that our marriage vac going to be different. We'd still be romantically In love when we celebrated our Golden Wedding anniversary 1 But the hand-holding got side-tracked a little three years later when we started having children. - o - WE NEVER DREAMED THAT KIDS could be so enchanting, so much work, so time-consuming, so expensive or so wonderful. When our first heir became apparent, we decided along with another very modern-minded couple, who didn't yet have any children, that we wouldn't let parenthood take over our lives. Thank goodness, this theory turned out to be absurd for all of us, although It took the other couple ten more years before they became parents and then they were just as involved and just as enthusiastic as we were. - o - WE DIDN'T KNOW .THAT CHILDREN could go so quickly,/row diapers to diplomas. I didn't know what a hole it would leave in the nest as each one left for an independent life. But I also didn't know what a feeling of satisfaction there is to find that in spite of what we as parents did, or didn't do, their offspring can turn out to be pretty wonderful people. We didn't know that we'd still have so much to talk about when the kids were gone. - o - THE VERSE ON AN ANNIVERSARY card we received said something about, "Still the same Sweethearts". It was meant as a compliment but it isn't really. If we haven't learned anything In the last 25 years it's about time we stopped trying. We are not only not the same sweethearts we were then, we are scarcely the same people. I've gotten fatter; he's gotten thinner. His hair Is greyer; mine is probably thinner. We don't quarrel very much, but that's because I've about given up trying to reform him of his exasperating traits. It might even be that there are one or two things about me that he finds less than perfect I Instead of calling each other "Dear" and "Honey" as we did back than, now it's "Father" and "Mother" - a custom I considered perfectly appalling 25 years ago. Now, I'd rather be called "Mother" than "Darling." - o - BEING NEWLY-WEDDED SWEETHEARTS has a very special magic. But I don't think I'd go back to those days even if it were possible. The contentment we've achieved was too hard won to try to do over again and I'm not about to start looking around. In fact, I'm more than ready to start the second 25 years together. Father agrees with me on this point. At least, I assume be does, and if he doesn't, I'll really clobber him! - o - DURING THE WEEK OF SEPT. 19 through 25 birthdays include Cynthia Miller, Kathryn Myers, Thelma Hayes, Ronnie Bronson, Katherine McMurray, Netha Mathes, Brad Chrischilles, Ann Hanson, Nyda Kolp, Brett Bartlett, Dave Smith, DeAnne McGuire, David Harig, Laurie Snyder, Susan Behr, Vernice Cash, Mark Prieskorn, Shawn Rooney, Bernice Schoby, Lori Zender, James Chalstrom, Janice Hoeckel, Julie Ann Chrischilles, Vivian Gilbert, Kyle Schattschneider, Merilyn Boekelman, Linda Gant, Larry Hoeckel, Willie Taylor, Linda Parsons, Eldon Winkel, Diane Smith, Helen Ross, BUI Robinson, Janis Venteicher, Donald P.

Make Strong Communities *, n your magic servant ELECTRICITY... Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; for thee I wait all the day long." — Psalms 25:5 It is not always easy to speak truth, to live according to what is right and what is wrong. Truth makes certain demands upon our conscience. We live uneasily when we live with a lie. There is great truth in God's commandments. There is truth in guidelines for living. Life is for each of us what we choose to make it. God's way is best. We have the guidelines. We also have, if we choose to exercise it, the courage to live with truth.
