From Madrid
October 19, 2015

In June we took our family to Madrid for a week to celebrate early our 50th wedding anniversary, which will be on December 22. We stayed in a vacation apartment three blocks from Puerta del Sol, Gate of the Sun, the very center of the city.

Here is a photo of the anniversary couple in front of the royal palace.

Unfortunately, the king was busy with other things, so we had to dine at an outdoor restaurant by ourselves.

How we came to this anniversary so soon is a mystery, but we thank God for his mercy and goodness to us in so many ways throughout our married life. Yes, we have had some losses and pain, but God’s grace is sufficient.
