24 Years of Marriage

Jungle Mom and Yekwanaman


William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds.
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is not shaken:
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Loves's not time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom,
If this be error, and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved




Song of Solomon 5 : 6 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend,,,

Congratulations on your anniversary! Amazing and inspiring.

I was hoping that you could comment on the issues that have caused you to have to leave Venezuela, now that you are out and safe. I am also wondering if you saw any new Islamic activity before you left? I spoke today with a missionary who was formerly in Afghanistan and is now in Spain, and he is headed to Venezuela later this month to a speaking engagement with evangelical pastors to train them in ministering to Muslims. From what I've read, Chavez is really catering to the Muslim community while really cracking down on the evangelical and Catholic community. I find that interesting in light of his relationship with Iran. Anyways, maybe you could shed some light on this subject?

Happy Anniversary Sis! Sorry I got on here so late, but I did put a little blurb about your special day on my post today. Can you believe I couldn't remember how many years you all are celebrating so I simply didn't mention that part of it. You all were just babies in that first photo!

Just Theresa said...

Congrats on your 24th anniversary!! May the Lord bless you two with many more :)

Jungle Mom said...

Rubia, I will share what I have observed. Give me a few days to get it pulled together.
Somethings I would like to share but can not bring anyone else to "light" so to speak. The area we were in Bolivar state is very sensitive. Other areas of Venezuela are still unaware of the inroads there, by the Iranians. Although the Cuban invasion is more visible but most Venezuelans are not alarmed by that.

Gayle said...

AWWWW! Lovely! Congratulations! I love hearing about successful marriages, since so many don't seem to take their vows very seriously anymore, and many others just live together without taking them at all. Here's wishing you many, many more wonderful years together. God bless you both.

Abouna said...

What a beautiful bride and handsome groom. God Bless you both and may God grant you both many more years.

Thank you so much for sharing your wedding pics. Congratulations! I'm not sure if hubby was Marines or another military branch, but wasn't it nice of Our Lord to give you a soldier of some kind to protect you and family while you all were in the jungle.

And after reading your post about Venzuella(can't spell it),I am praying even more for your safety.
