Matheson Is Scene of Pretty Wedding
Today, June 17th, I’m reflecting on my parents marriage. Dad went to be with the Lord in May 2004 and Mom in August 2005, but they were married almost 62 years. Here is the newspaper article describing the wedding.
Notice a few things as you read the article.
1) Their favourite hymn – “All The Way My Saviour Leads Me.” This hymn sung on June 17, 1942 echoed through the years through the trials and blessings God entrusted to them.
2) …Mr Edwards is employed by the Abitibi Power and Paper Company in Smooth Rock Falls. Dad worked there for a few years until they bought his uncle’s farm in Hilliard Township in 1946. Dad was a tremendous administrator and bookkeeper and served in the lumber camp during the war years. His clear testimony of faith in Jesus Christ at times led to ridicule but God enabled him to be faithful to Jesus Christ. Later he was called at Thornloe to serve in a pastoral ministry (October 1952) at Thornloe Crossroads Baptist.
I am grateful to God for His blessing in their lives and for the rich heritage entrusted to us as children. We are indeed blessed!
