Today I celebrate 8 wonderful years of marriage to my best friend in the whole world! It’s hard to believe it was 8 years ago that we were planning, inviting, shopping, having family down, and getting ready for our wedding day! Which by the way was TOTALLY beautiful and EVERYTHING I ever imagined it to be!
Now here we are today – 10 years after we started dating and 8 years of marriage – with 2 wonderful, healthy children, David’s running his own successful computer consulting business, I get to stay home with the little ones – we have a beautiful home, a dog (which I’m still trying to find someone who would like to take her?!?!), godly friends, and a good church. I never thought I would be this happy in all my life!
Not to say it’s always been rose petals and rainbows (sometimes we still have a tiff or two). We’ve had our times – just like everyone else – but what’s most important is that we have found and continue to find ways to work through those things. Also we made and effort and a commitment to keep Christ at the center of our lives and our home, and He’s been faithful to us as well. Marriage isn’t always easy, but I wouldn’t go back for anything in the world! I truly love being married – and I couldn’t have asked for a better husband than David!
I’ve been truly blessed! I pray the same happiness for my friends in their marriages! And for my single friends (Sahara, I’m thinking mostly of you Sister!) I pray that the Lord will send you the godly spouse you desire and then spend the rest of your married life blessing you for trusting in Him!
I encourage you today to think about how much God loves us, and how he shows that love to us thru our marriages!
David, I love you Baby! Thanks for 8 amazing years! I'm looking forward to the next 60!
