In the midst of the Great Preparation for Christmas one year, long ago, there was a young couple about to make a decision that would change the course of history, for them…and the generations to follow.

“Love is in the air!” She smiled and silently leaped with youthful joy. In her 60+ physical realm, the Ludvigson Lace Lady wisely limits leaping stunts to emergency exits out of burning buildings! But the leaping is nonetheless true – deep within!
“My son is soon to unite with his bride with great celebration!” Another leap implodes in the LLL’s heart.
And if that was not enough celebration, Tim and she are about to celebrate 37 years of marriage. “And it seems just like yesterday that we were planning our own wedding!”
She was reminded of the beautiful Marriage Prayer, narrated by Bill Pierce. “It was shared at my mom and dad’s 50th.”
And the Ludvigson Lace Lady still prays this prayer regularly for herself and Tim. “And for other dearly loved couples in my life!”
The valued memory of the ‘Marriage Prayer’ was shared sometime last year. “In my blog! Let’s share it again! And don’t forget to listen to the utube of Bill Pierce reading the prayer! What a voice!”

“I’ll take the trash out,” can be routinely heard every morning as the goodbye and the kiss are issued, starting another day. This would be Tim and me. Trash, for us today equals only one, maybe two, Walmart bags, collecting any throw out item in the whole of our dwelling. “It’s rather fun to … More Life is Lovelier With Lace. . .

Did you sit in the Debbie row in elementary school, as I did? If grade school for you was in the early 1960’s, you probably did. Yes, we had a special place to sit – just because we were Debbie!

Chocolate. It is medicimal for females. I cannot confirm this logically, for it is not a logical phenomenon. But illogically, it is quite proven: We need it when we need it. Immediately following my tonsillectomy at only two years old, I remember preferring chocolate over soothing ice cream on my post-surgery throat. My memory clearly envisions … More Life is Lovelier with Lace…and Chocolate ♡
