Did You See The Super Moon and Happy Anniversary to my Sweet Husband!

One night week before last while we were at the hospital, I heard that there was going to be a "Super Moon" for a few nights.  This meant that the moon was going to be as close to the earth as it would be this year.
I went home to feed Bella and took these photos while I was outside playing with her.
It really was awesome.  So big and round and the whole sky just glowed from it.  It was a sight to see.  I am so glad that I got to see it.  I went back and told John about it, but where he was in the hospital, you couldn't see it. 
On another note, August 31 is a bittersweet day for us.  Forty-six years ago we were married (and they said it wouldn't last).  I am so thankful for my husband and all of the forty-six years we have celebrated together.
But, on a sadder note, it was also on August 31 six years ago that our precious great-grandson Landen passed away.  It was almost the exact time of day that we were married.
So, it's a good and hard day at the same time.  We have so many good memories that they outweigh the not-so-good ones.  We will celebrate quietly as John recuperates.
I need to once again thank you for all of your prayers for John and I.  The doctors keep saying that they don't know how these good things keep happening to him and John and I just smile and say that it's all of the prayers being said for him.  I am so grateful to have made so many praying and thoughtful dear friends.
Thank you all.


  1. I've been thinking about you and your husband Judy.

    I keep thinking about the saying 'everything will work out in the end, and if it doesn't, it's not the end'.


  2. Happy Anniversary, Judy and John. Prayers still being prayed nightly.

  3. Happy Anniversary to you and John.
    So glad that you got to see the super moon. It was sure big and bright.
    I am so glad that John is home and doing better.
    Daily prayers are being said for John and you.
    Have a wonderful weekend. Bet Bella is glad to get John home.

  4. It is odd how sad things sometimes occur on important days of our lives. My dad died on my MIL's birthday, and she almost died on his. And my cousin died on my aunt and uncle's anniversary. So please know that I am sending loving thoughts your way on your anniversary. I am so thankful that prayer is lifting John up. My prayer is for his complete healing and full recovery. xoxo

  5. Happy Anniversary to you two though there are the sad memories of your precious grandson intertwined with that date now.

    We had clouds at Super Moon time..never got to see it here! :)

  6. Happy Anniversary . . .
    I hope the day holds the sweetness of memories past and forward . . .

  7. Praying for you and John and Happy Anniversary! So thankful God is giving you strength and John is getting well. Such a positive attitude you have. My daughter and I come from such a negative family. We have tried for years to bring positive thoughts their way but before we know it we are down. Considering a move and new surroundings. We need to spread happiness and get a little back like we do from your blog and several others.

  8. Happy Anniversary, Judy & John! Prayers continue.

  9. Happy Anniversary to you both, dear Judy! Such a love story.....such a wonderful marriage. Sending you love and thinking of you both.

  10. Happy Anniversary Judy. So happy you both have been blessed to be together for so many wonderful years. Keeping prayers and good thoughts for John.
    Enjoy your special day.

  11. Wishing you and John a nice quiet day and comforting memories.

  12. Happy Anniversary! Wow, I can't even imagine. Is it just me or does it seem like time is going faster and faster? It's like we are all speeding downhill towards something. And, come to think of it, I can see how you and John could be married for so long. You are both just the kindest people! I'm so glad to find you, even if just online. I understand your sadness about Landen. It doesn't seem right that beautiful little ones go on and leave us here. I'm glad he had you both to love him. I have everyone on praying for you both. That includes people from all over the world! It's a great app for your phone and their slogan is "pray more, worry less". So love to you both on this special day. XO

  13. ((((((( A HUGE HUG ))))))))

    I just love you, Judy......

    Prayers do mend and I pray that God will continue to surprise those doctors!

    Thinking of you on this day...and always.

    lots of love.....

  14. Happy Anniversary! I can't say I had that many years put in with all three marriages put together! Now look at your canna photo. Pretty as can be! You and I managed to pilfer quite a few cannas, didn't we?

  15. Hi Judy,
    Happy Anniversary to you and John. Prayers are being heard and answered and I pray John continues to recover with God's comfort.
    So sorry for the loss of your great grandson.

    Your photos are amazing.
    Best wishes for a quiet anniversary celebration.

  16. Hm, I don't think my post went thru! But 46years, Wow that is wonderful. Happy Anniversary to you lovely people. Prayers coming your way for John's recovery.

  17. I am so glad to hear that John is doing better. What a witness you and he are to the medical staff! How mighty is your testimony! Continuing to pray and praise.

  18. Happy Anniversary, John and Judy. I'm sure that Landen is smiling down on you. He loved you so. So this is a bittersweet day, of course, but full of memories - of your marriage and of sweet Landen.


  19. I hope that the prayers keep coming and that you can keep confounding the doctors and have more years of marriage together. I am sorry that it is a bittersweet day. xx
