Old Love...

I found this on Mrs. B's site the other day. I just love it.

Is there anything more beautiful in life than a young couple clasping hands and pure hearts in the path of marriage? Can there be anything more beautiful than young love?

Yes, there is a more beautiful thing.

It is the spectacle of an old man and an old woman finishing their journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for one another.

Yes, there is a more beautiful thing than young love....

Old love.

Sorry this has nothing to do with this post. I skimmed your blog and found the post on beloved bloggers who 'quit'. Mrs. Catherine posts at I was only surprised to find her after googling her name. Maybe I can do that with Kelly Wilt.

I really love this post. As my husband and I have been blessed to share our lives together I look forward to many more that our Heavenly Father bless us with.
We still hold hands and touch each other in public.
We get many compliments from the younger couples and singles.
