A loving daughter writes about her Mother, “We almost lost her. She had colitis and then found out some of her intestines had died. She had to have emergency surgery.” (See photo below) She goes on to give thanks to all that prayed. Which includes some of you. You, as part of the lily story always giving hope, peace and joy shared this beautiful basket of love. It arrived on their 66th wedding anniversary. See him on the phone? Just imagine the call of love he was making. I had to smile as this love story continues to unwind. She hadn’t eaten for over a week but those goodies her sweetheart ❤️️ shared sure set her heart afire.
They have been through many storms. Just to many to name. They have pastored and built churches. They struggle with health issues as they journey through their 80’s. They are linked in Heart by the giver of life. She, like her Dad and brother have always been ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus, being the reason we celebrate Christmas. Her beloved husband always by her side. He is a rock seemly cut from The Rock.
As I pause and gaze upon her loving hands so happy to hold her husbands face once again I am reminded that all of us can have the hand of God holding us in all our ups and downs of life. Christmas is a great time to share stories that are story just because Jesus was born.
Again, we give thanks to each lily for being a part of many stories in 2016.

What a beautiful story! God bless them and family.
Talk about a love story!!!….this is about the story of the Bride and the Bridegroom!!
This is the story of Everlasting Love. It will last throughout eternity! It is fashioned along the lines of the Heart of the Father for His creatures….no matter what kind of condition our hearts were in….while we were yet sinners, He loved us so much…who can fathom that kind of love??….while we still ignored Him, denied Him, walked away from Him, mocked Him….yet God so loved “US”.
What eternal gratitude we have in our hearts for this kind of love. And when we see that kind of ”forgiving love” in others as we see in this ‘young couple’, here… we Know there is a GOD in Heaven, for this kind of LOVE EVERLASTING can only happen when the EVERLASTING LOVER of their souls occupies a dwelling place in their hearts. Just ask them! They will tell you. Who is number ONE in their hearts? Jesus the Lord God Almighty. That’s why they can love like this.
Merry Christmas to the those in this, the 2nd best Christmas Story I have heard this year.!!!!
