Wedding Day Letter from Billy to Ruth
“Ruth and I don’t have a perfect marriage,” Billy Graham once said. “But we have a great one.”
The love between Billy Graham and Ruth Bell Graham was inspiring to all. They spoke so highly of each other and exemplified how to keep Christ the center of a marriage. Below you can read the letter that Billy wrote Ruth on their wedding day 75 years ago.
The letter says:
Aug. 13, 1943
— To love thee, to cherish thee to protect thee so long as we both shall live. To be tender, kind patient and true is the deepest desire of my heart tonight.
My Darling, I love you with a love that knows no bounds and together under the leadership of the Holy Spirit we shall walk life’s road together.
May we be calm in His presence
May we rest our souls in Him
May we feed on the fullness of His Word
May we die to all things of time.
