“Once In A Blue Moon”

We’ve all heard the saying, but tonight we’ll get to experience the first New Year’s Eve Blue Moon in 19 years!   A blue moon has nothing to do with the color of the moon – it simply defines the second full moon in a month.

Do you remember what life was like before you met your spouse?

I do!  I was only 18 at the time, but how I wanted to be married and start a family.  I had no idea that Tom was just over the horizon, and we would soon be together.  It was very much like the full moon tonight – he took my breath away.  Actually, he infused life into my soul – and “I talked his head off”, as he says with a smile.  Amazingly, he still loves to hear me talk.  Our love came along unexpectedly like “once in a blue moon”.

The next New Year’s Blue Moon won’t occur until 2028 – 19 years away.  Imagine what your love will look like then?  This year we celebrated our 30th anniversary!  We’ll be on the eve of our 50th wedding anniversary in 2028, if God allows us to live so long.  I look forward to dancing with Tom to this ageless song as I hold Him close thanking God for another year to love him and share life with him!

NOTE:  I found this perpetual Full Moon Calendar to see if the month you and your spouse met was a Blue Moon month.  Ours wasn’t literally, but it certainly was in our hearts!  Happy New Year, and thank you for being a part of our Vineyard family.
