The Blessing of 50 years

This is the memory movie my husband, daughter and I put together to honor my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We shared it with family and friends at the party on Saturday night. I asked my parents for two or three songs that were meaningful to them. The first song in the movie is the song sung at their wedding 50 years ago. I had not completed the finished version when we left for California. I asked my husband to preview it and finalize it. I was so shocked when 6hrs later I came back to the hotel and he was still working on it. I said I thought you would be reading by the pool. It was so sweet how he discribed the blessing he felt by viewing this over and over realizing the life of my parents and how after 28 years of marriage he felt so connected to my family and God really had done what He said. He had made us one.Pause my blog music tape player before you view my Memory movie.


  1. Found you through a blog, through a blog, through a blog, LOL, can't remember originally where. Anyway, you don't know me, but I wanted to know, was it HARD to make this film? I want to make one for my parent's 50th. It is this year. What system did you use? i also want to make a video for some nonprofit cancer fundraising. i have no idea how to do this. could you email when you get a chance? thanks!

  2. That was so neat. What an honor to make something so special for your parents.

    My parents had their 50th 2 years ago and we put together one of those awesome hard bound books...what a trip down memory lane to have put it together.

    My parents both cried when they looked at it.

    I think your parents are so lucky to have you, a daughter who loves them so much and such a wonderful son in law too!

    Happy 4th of July
