one LONG date

People are like stained glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealeed
only if there is light from within.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I first read Ms. Kubler-Ross'  book On Death and Dying
after my father's passing in 1989.
The book's message altered the path of
my life and
has colored my thinking ever since.

Today, Mr. Lee and I celebrate 16 years of dating.
Regardless of traveling in sunshine or shade,
we have shared a path.

We feel blessed each and every day.
Never part in anger.
And praise the Lord each and everyday.

It is what happens in a marriage of
equally yoked individuals.  


  1. And now I am crying.....
    Such a beautiful post Genie!
    Congrats to you & Mr. Lee.
    Just like us, you two are in it for the long hauled. Like you said, "equally yoked". It's the only way it works.
    Blessings to you all,

  2. Danette,

    You always bring sunshine into my day.
    Love you sweet Danette.
