WATCH: Elderly Husband Dances to Wife's Piano Tune

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 04/14/16

This is one couple still full of "sap and green"

They still bring forth fruit in old age, they are ever full of sap and green.Psalm 92:14

There is great beauty in a married couple who remain young at heart.

A son captured this special moment between his elderly parents, though it’s easy to imagine this kind of thing is a regular occurrence in the home of his 81-year-old mother and 90-year-old father. The song they are playing and dancing to is called “Galopera,” a popular tune in Paraguay.
