We've had a busy weekend celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary.
We've had friends and relatives over for the past few days,
and along with the celebrations, we've all enjoyed catching up.
In a day, when marriages are not highly prioritized,
it's great to celebrate together with Werner & Frieda,
FIFTY BIG YEARS!
They have shown the younger generation, that
commitment is worth it, through thick and thin.
Many stories were related about this wonderful couple.
We had many good laughs.
They have left a legacy for all of us for along time to come.
They have lived the faith and talked the walk,
Not only in their family, but their church and community.
They just built themselves a new home.
They both have a heart for hospitality.
They have shown that over and over and over.
Sunday afternoon we all enjoyed a beautiful sunny day
celebrating and catching up with many friends and relatives.
It was late into the evening hours when we were still
sitting on their back yard enjoying the sunset
and making a final toast to
this beautiful bride and groom of 50 years.
May you both have many more years of health.
This family knows how to celebrate and give the glory to God.
Thank you Werner and Frieda for your on-going friendship and support.
Yesterday, we took out of town relatives to to Krause's Berry Farm.
The yard was packed and lined with cars for about 2 km.
People were obviously using our Provincial Holiday (BC Day)
to enjoy the warm sunny weather and pick those fresh berries.
Now, that's a Pie.
I can't pride myself with this recipe,
but check it out at Krause's Berry Farm.
Treat yourself to the Fraser Valley's best berry pies.
Homemade with a custard and heaped to the top with fresh berries.
Add your glaze and some ice-cream and there's your supper.
Drool over this while I take a few days off from bloggy land
to enjoy the warms sunny beaches of BC's interior.
