Their son said that his father would continuously say, 'I have to stick around. I can't go until she does because I have to stay here for her and she would say the same thing.'
He also said 'I don't believe there was a big secret to their marriage. Sometimes one or the other would get mad but they worked everything out. 'In the end, they chose each other and that was it. They were committed.'
Their daughter also said they were both inlove and always took care of each other!
- They chose each other and that was it
- They were committed
- They were in love
- They took care of each other
Sounds simple and easy right??? Yes, it sure does but unfortunately we see so much of the opposite in our would today.
I believe being inlove with anyone is a choice! It is a decision, not a feeling and requires conscious effort! And commitment! You chose him or her and that's it
Personally I think our world of today is making so much mockery of the institution of marriage that was created by God to be enjoyed and successful. It is very sad!! On tv, in church, in communities and countries.. they are sad and scary stories about marriages.
Which is why I totally loved this story because we all need a simple remind that God created the union of marriage to be enjoyed and successful. Two people choosing to live together, love each other, makes mistakes, learn together, forgive each other and grow together.
RIP Gordon and Norman
