{25-Year Anniversary of our Church Wedding in Chile quietly passed by}

With my Mom's death on January 27, a lot of things got pushed into the shadow and that's why the 25 Year Anniversary of our Church Wedding in Chile, on my birthday February 6, quietly passed by...
This is the little Church from Cristo Resucitado de Cuinco, Osorno - Chile with our friend Padre Juan Janssen, who married us.
Padre Juan is Dutch by birth and Pieter helped his Mission, through several projects.
To the left is the rectory and the house where Padre Juan Janssen lived and where we stayed in February of 1990.
Not everyone does have a Church wedding booklet in Spanish...
Our Madrina Erna Araneda Gomez and Padrino Jose Canquil Chaipul
The blessing of our wedding rings in the little Church of the south of Chile.
Right after our Church wedding...
Mom being in heaven only 10 days, we did however get a very sweet gift from dear friends Heinz & Maria from Ristorante da Maria from +Dublin Farm "Come Home To The Country" so we enjoyed the above delicious 5-course dinner together!
Both of us feel very blessed for having been united in matrimony together for almost 32 years and having it blessed before God with the Sacrament of the Holy Matrimony as well!

  3. Allereerst al wel een maand later, maar dat geeft niks...van harte gefeliciteerrd...en ook nog gefeliciteerd met het jubileum van je kerkelijke huwelijk...wel speciaal hoor om dat mee te mogen maken in zo'n kerkje...jij jebt een heel leuk leven (gehad) dit zet ik maar even tussen haakjes, want je hebt nog steeds een fijn leven, maar je begrijpt wel wat ik bedoel denk ik...de meesten van jou leeftijd hebben toen niet gezien of gedaan wat jullie in die jaren gezien en gedaan hebben...mooie herinneringen laat je ons altijd weer zien....

    1. Beste Marian,
      Dank je wel! Jazeker hebben we een heel leuk en vooral 'rijk' leven gehad. Mede daardoor kunnen we voor de rest van ons leven ook nog teren op prácht herinneringen. Dat is voedsel voor de ziel en dat neem je mee tot aan je dood. Ja, een oudere man helpt natuurlijk ook met zoveel meer levens ervaring en met zoveel wereldwijde contacten van projecten en/of leerlingen over al die jaren. De mooie herinneringen delen we graag met alle lezers!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Grazie e sì, legalmente da oltre 32 anni ma anche la chiesa per noi ancora significa molto. Così il dono dei nostri amici che tienen il ristorante italiano autentico, è stato molto prezioso. Abbiamo scelto il tilapia... Deliziosa come sempre ciò che prepara la chef Maria.
      Abbraccio,
      Mariette

  6. Hello Mariette, It is sad that your mother's passing came so close to your anniversary, but I would look on it as a reminder how lucky you were to have had your mother as a presence over so many years of your married life. Your many trips and invitations over the years do show how much you appreciated just this.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Mom is enjoying her well deserved time in heaven and from there, things are even more clear and open for her to enjoy. There in fact is very little sadness from my end, I'm relieved that she is at peace! As for us, we can look back on so many fond memories that are precious and live forever within our hearts. That is what I always call being rich and the same is true for having had my Mom over to stay with us. I did the utmost for her and that feels good! With God's blessing we will remain happily married for several more years to come.
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, mooi toch zo'n speciale ervaring en in dat práchtige land! Je waant je zowiezo al dichter bij God als je door Inter Patagonia reist. Ook zó'n heldere hemel om sterren te bekijken via de Vistadome trein die we tussen de Andes en het Kustgebergte reden. Kon gewoon niet slapen met zó'n helder uitzicht! Adembenemend mooi en pracht herinneringen hebben we aan Chili.
      Met God's zegen voegen we er nog heel veel gelukkige jaren bij aan. We hebben zóveel samen beleefd en kunnen een leven lang nagenieten.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Ja, dat Zilveren Huwelijk is met name ook iets tussen God en in onze harten en dat dragen we met ons tot onze dood en hopelijk nog héél lang samen!
      Het diner met onze viskeuze (altijd) was echt heel bijzonder voor die dag.
      Liefs en ook een fijne zondagavond nog!

      Than you very much and we do celebrate our wedding every day that God grants us to be together. It has been sealed in a very special Church and the wedding outfit I had for quite a while; meant for the occasion but it took a while. The world is a small planet and if we can take out the language barriers it becomes a fascinating meeting place for kindred spirits. That all adds to our happiness!
      Sending you sunny hugs from Central Georgia,
      Mariette

      My Parents were with us for the Civil Wedding in my birth town. We just came back from Italy, via Horst, The Netherlands on January 27 of 1990. We flew to Chile on the 2nd of February and for my Parents that would have been quite a stressful journey into a Spanish speaking country.
      They sure have been very proud of the fact that we followed into their footsteps all the way; complete with the Sacrament of Marriage by Church.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  18. Such a lovely little church. Happy anniversary to you both. A friend of mine celebrates her 29th anniversary today but she and her husband are in different countries. Still, she baked a heart shaped German cheesecake and plans to Skype with him.

      Thank you and yes, that lovely little Church only did add to our experience!
      It is tough when husband and wife are in different countries. I've lived through a lot of time-away from husband Pieter while he was in China, New Zealand, Australia, Colombia or Canada but that was only for weeks and not longer. It makes one appreciate each other even more!
      Happy International Women's Day to you as well; you live it and you have inspired and met so many women.

      Well, our friends did invite us for dinner because of my birthday; not knowing that it also was about our 25th Church wedding anniversary and especially for giving us a break during the mourning period. It was a very quiet but delicious evening for Pieter and me, at one little table together while Chef Maria prepared the dinners for us and other guests and her husband served beverages. Yes sure, Mom was nearby as she will always be nearby.
      Thank you so much for your blessings and sending you love and hugs back across the ocean from Georgia/USA,

  22. Liebe Mariette,

    das ist eine lange Zeit und ebensolange bin ich mit meinem Mann verheiratet, aber davor schon waren wir 4 Jahre zusammen. Nur kirchlich konnten wir leider nicht heiraten, was ich sehr bedauere, aber es ist schwierig, wenn einer den Glauben nicht hat.
    Ich wünsche Euch beiden noch eine wunderschöne lange Zeit miteinander.
    Alles Liebe
