Expressions of Love...♥

Today we have been married for twenty years...here's why...


Vince:   I remember one of our first dates, a picnic then a wander through woods where we came face to face with a deer…we stood in awe for a few minutes ‘til the deer moved away…

Lisa:   I loved my first ever bunch of flowers, daffodils and tulips, from the 
Temple grounds where Vince was working as a gardener…

Vince:   On our honeymoon to Guernsey we hired a car and went to a petrol station and began to fill it up. The attendant quickly advised us to only put a few pounds in. We soon realised why when we drove round the island visiting all the beaches in one day!

Lisa:   That moment in hospital, after giving birth, when I looked over to see my husband holding our brand new daughter in his arms and tears running down his face, as the early morning sunlight streamed in through the window…

Vince:   Walks along beaches as the sun goes down and holding hands…

Lisa:   Dressing up posh for Youth Prom nights, made us feel like kids again as we never had Proms when we were young!

Vince:   The excitement when we planned a surprise, mystery day for the children which involved their first aeroplane flight and a day in Scotland…

Lisa:   We love romantic dog walks in all weather: seeing blossom on the trees in spring, listening to the bubbling river in the summer, rustling through fallen leaves in autumn and crunching through freshly fallen snow in winter…

Vince:   Visiting the Temple as a couple…both at Preston and London Temples…being in the spiritual splendour of the Temple and its grounds, reminding us of the eternal nature of our marriage…

Lisa:   I love his sense of fun…dressing up at Halloween, playing Bill Sykes in our family adaptation of ‘Oliver’ and just getting involved enthusiastically…

Vince:   I love how Lisa encourages our children to be the very best that they can be...

Lisa:   Christmas time…and family time…I love to watch our family unite in the season of giving and love…

Vince:   I love the support Lisa gives me in everything I want to do.... Even when she knows it won't work out...

Lisa:   I love how Vince always does his best and conscientiously achieves such high standards…and his support and encouragement makes me feel special, like I can achieve anything…

Vince:   I love the confidence Lisa has in me in achieving anything, she knows my potential far better than I do, I love the way she encourages me when I have doubts....

Lisa:   I love how when I‘m anxious and worry about things Vince doesn’t let anything faze him…he tells me everything will be alright…
and it always is…

Vince:   I love when Lisa cuddles up to me on the sofa of an evening.  I love it when she comes up to me just for a hug…

Lisa:   Those moments when I’m out and see Vince drive by in his bus, or when he gets home from work…still give me tingles and bubbles of love in my heart…

Vince:   I love looking up at the night sky, with Lisa next to me as we contemplate the other worlds that Heavenly Father has created, and how we could one day, create worlds of our own…

Lisa:   I love his strength and protection… I love searching for Vince’s hand and finding it…
