Project Details

This simple layout celebrates my parent's golden wedding anniversary. Thanks to my talented and imaginative sister, we had a James Bond style event, very top secret going by the code name: Operation Goldfish (golden anniversary. . .celebrated on the water, life preserver key chains, etc.) My parents knew something was up, but not that we had gathered more than 100 friends and family members on the Delta Queen for a surprise celebration journey on the Sacramento River (the town were my parents lived after they were first married). It was a wonderful celebration and they were just glowing. . .I am most thankful for the Lord's provision of my dear parents and their commitment to each other honoring their marriage covenant and the Lord.
