In a week Brad and I will celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. I am thinking back now-mulling over many memories. I was listening to a song sung by the Gaithers, “The Love of God,” and I thought of the wonderful pastor who married us, Reverend George Elrod. He was an Assembly's of God pastor who loved to teach the Bible and also to sing. The Love of God was the song he sang often, but for our wedding he sang the Lord's Prayer.
Pastor Elrod had a gift of storytelling and with relatives in Louisiana he would often tell us Cajun stories using the dialect they use. My husband also has relatives in Louisiana and as a boy he would spend the summer helping his uncle in the bait shop which included seining the river. So it was a complete circle for Pastor Elrod to marry us.
So just for memories and joy here is a different video with a bit of Billy Graham and then the song.
