34 Good Years - Happy Anniversary Sweetheart

It was about a month after we met that you shocked me (Nov. 7, 1980) with a marriage proposal. I made you wait seven l-o-n-g months so I could get to know you and feel like I was marrying a good friend and for just the right day when we’d be off from teaching for the summer. It was 106º that day, but we were filled with gratitude to the Lord that He had preserved us, for bringing us together and for the support of family and friends who came wishing us well. 

In these 34 years, God has brought us seven children and is in the process of giving us a dozen grandchildren (some here, others anticipated) not to mention what God may do in years to come. 

The Lord showed us that we could trust Him to provide for the children He sent and the work he gives us to do. 

Through many dangers toils and snares, we have already come. He has led us safe thus far and He will lead us Home.

Hello from the past.Whether you remember me or not is neither here nor there.the intention of this post after all is to thank you sir.i remember vividly so many of what seemed to me at the time weird life lessons you shared with the pixley 6th grade class back in 1989 0r 1990.i remember you telling us about the world wide web, going home sharing with my parents what i had learned and told not to believe you because you had to be nuts.little did they know.most of all Mr.Seppi i recall a conversation we had about gangs and how they were not the kind of thing to get into.Im proud to say i never joined a gang.neither will any of my children thanks to the wisdom you shared with me .i could go on and on about all the good things you did for me just by being my teacher.who would think it would take 26 years to realize how thankful i am you were my teacher ...thank you sir..with much respect your student Michael Joseph Lee Atondo

Congratulations!! What a wonderful life you all have had. I know it has not been easy, but like the hymn you quoted from God has led you safely through it all. You have such beautiful children and grandchildren. You are truly blessed. It is a blessing to know your family. I look forward to all the blessings that God will shower upon you in the coming years.
