10 years and counting!

(written for our 10 yr Anniversary: 6/9/11)

I'm sure some thought we'd never make it this far.  But even with all the issues that can complicate marriage, I've NEVER even contemplated the thought that we wouldn't grow old together. 

There is no such thing as a perfect marriage...because there is no such thing as perfect people.

But we serve a perfect God.....and where His blessing is.........

there is love. 

There is patience. 

There is kindness. 

There is honor. 

There is rejoicing and truth. 

There is trust. 

There is hope.

And there is forgiveness.

That forgiveness enables two imperfect people to keep pressing on, working to make our marriage what God intends it to be.

You took on an immense challenge when you decided you wanted to spend the rest of your life with me....for I can be a very complicated person [grin]

You seem to love everything about me...even the bad things.  I know this because you're always the first one to apologize - even if you aren't at fault.

You tell me multiple times each day how much you love me and you think I'm the most beautiful girl in the world.  I don't see the same person that you see when I look in the mirror.  But I'm striving to be my best for the Lord because only then can I give the best of me to you.   

I love you with all my heart and soul.  I have been blessed more the last ten years of my life with you by my side than I could have ever imagined!

I promise you that I will always love you, always be here for you, and always give my best to you. I can't wait to see what God has in store for our future as we continue to learn to make HIM first in our lives!

Happy 10th Anniversary, "Mister"! 
May God bless us with MANY, MANY MORE!!!
