Happy 50th, Mom and Dad!

Bruce and Merrilyn Nehring, 50th Anniversary
Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom and Dad! I'll be reminiscing across the miles tomorrow. Love you both and so thankful God gave you each other.


All the days...




Five great questions of life: Life * Love * Learning * Labor * Leadership

Love: Who Will I Spend My Life With?


Happy 50th, Mom and Dad!

By Evan Nehring

This is the week! Col and I go to our jobs today and then we pack tonight for a five day Canada cruise. It's anniversary celebration weekend!

It's very hard to describe all the meaning of this event. My parents' lives have been given together as a gift of grace to their world. Well...let me say it like this...

Bruce and Merrilyn Nehring, 50th Anniversary

A young man called Swan River home
Skating hard in the hockey zone
Harvesting when crops were grown
Waiting for the day
 
A farmer's daughter in Brandon town
A smile to lift the deepest down
Destined for a wedding gown
 
Time blows 'cross the golden plain
Takes your breath away again
Like only yesterday
 
All the days
Are hymns of glorious praise
Humbled and amazed
By the grace displayed
 
Off to save the world they went
Giving grace with each moment spent
Nurse and preacher heaven sent
To build and care and pray
 
Then came the kids: one, two, three, four
A girl, a boy, and two girls more
Christmas days and holiday shores
Bedtime prayers each day

 
Four provinces, one territory
Faithful to th' eternal story
Bride and groom would bring God glory

 
Time blows 'cross the golden plain
Takes your breath away again
Like only yesterday
 
All the days
Are hymns of glorious praise
Humbled and amazed
By the grace displayed
Through all the days
 
Generations bring new love
Grandpa, grandma, the old woodstove
Coming home through rain and snow

 
When we've been there 10,000 years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise

Then when we'd first begun
 
All the days
Are hymns of glorious praise
Humbled and amazed
At the grace displayed
Through all the days

Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom and Dad! I'll be reminiscing across the miles tomorrow. Love you both and so thankful God gave you each other.

  1. Evan: Please wish your parents a very happy 50th wedding anniversary from me. I doubt your dad would even remember me, but it is a real achievement to be with your life's partner for 50 years, and for that, congratulations are in order!
