A Forever Girl — 29 Comments

  1. Aww, so sweet and so special! Your granddaughter is blessed to have a grandmother who loves her “Forever man” as much as you do! I’m certain this will inspire her to be that “Forever girl” for her one day husband as well. Love the photos too! This is great and I’m so glad you linked it up with Wedded Wed, my friend!

  2. So much here to make for a wonderful marriage. With all the wrong information out there, this is a great place for women to look for truth about how to have a God-centered marriage and to trust God to provide a husband. Happy 30th Anniversary. My best friend’s 30th wedding anniversary is also today. Linking with Wedded Wednesday.

  5. So many great truths…not only things I hope for my baby girl to someday know but also that I must remind myself. Us married woman can show the world what redemptive marriage looks like–a picture of Christ’s redemptive and whole love. What a privilege and high calling! Thank you for sharing this beautiful post! 🙂

  6. Congratulations on your anniversary! I love your letter to your grand baby. What a treasure for when she is older. We, too, hit 30 years this year, and are newly minted grandparents as of two weeks ago. I have been mulling over what to write to her for a welcome letter and you have given me so much wonderful food for thought. Thanks!
