73 Christmases

My mom sent me this link of a newspaper article on a sweet dear couple, John and Edith McBrayer. It's a good article on what makes a marriage endure. The McBrayers have been married 73 years. Mrs. Edith was my Sunday School Teacher when I was in preschool and Mr. John B. was a deacon at Blackshear Place Baptist Church when my dad was the pastor there in the late 60's and early 70's. Robin and I try to see them when we can if we are back in North GA area. They had been very generous supporters of our ministry through the years.

Robin and I have had 5 Christmases together. I'd have to live to 109 and Robin 103 to match the McBrayers!
