It's been 7 years since we vowed to love each other our entire lives. I was so excited and terrified at the same time.
I'd never met anyone like you. We sang in the car together, did homework together (aka, me writing your literature papers), spent so much time together. And sometimes I had a tough time figuring you out. Because you are who you are. All the time. (I don't always get that...I like to put on a 'face'.)
But you made me laugh, made me think, made me be honest with myself (especially when I didn't want to be.) You forgave easily. You laughed a lot. You loved people for who they were.
I'm so thankful God has given us 7 incredible years. I love you more than when we first got married. Thank you for graciously allowing me to make MANY mistakes as I learn how to love you first, not myself. You have helped me draw closer to the Lord in so many ways. I am so thankful that I have such a wonderful, godly man to grow old with.
Our wedding verse:
"Delight yourselves in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."
(Oh yeah, thanks for not letting me break up with you for a 3rd time. You were right.)
