Thanks Nicole for the link to this article. My friends will want to read it too. Their long term love is an example we need to hear about.

When I read this to Alan, he reminded me of a sermon we heard a long time ago. The speaker was recounting the story of his father who, as an elderly man, had just buried his wife. His dad commented, “That was just as I’d always hoped; she went first so she didn’t have the burden of burying me.” The talk was given to a group of homosexual men in response to their claim that homosexual love was legitimate. After recounting the story he said “You can have no idea of that type of love.” I’m sure in today’s world this criticism could be applied to most modern ideas of love.

Who couldn’t admire a man who would desire to serve his wife so self-sacrificially?

Anyone else got a true love story to share?
