re·fined ( Adj.)- With impurities or unwanted elements having been removed by processing.

Tonight I was reviewing a few images from my niece’s christening when I came across an image of my parents that made my heart smile! This past NYE they celebrated their 32nd Wedding Anniversary! Fortunately, I’ve been blessed enough to experience 28 of those 32 years of their growth, their successes and failures, and all of the their smiles complimented by tears. I witnessed their refinement from the front row and I am grateful for the awesome seat!

My marriage is a reflection of theirs and it is even more beautiful to know that they fought hard for the moment they shared in this image…Mom & Dad, I thank you both for paving the road so that Tia and I can experience the fullness of God’s image of marriage!
