Happy Valentines Day
to MY VALENTINE!
It has been quite an adventure to be married to you for these first five years! We have been through "a whole heap together". We've experienced the lovie-dovie in love times of being newly weds, we've worked together, traveled together, we've even been through the difficult times of job changes and life stresses.
You have been supportive of me through some of the toughest months of my life. You have been strong, kept the faith, and most of all... you held on to hope for me and for us. Thank you. Thick and Thin, my love.
In 2007, we had our first child and our lives were changed forever... for the better! We were a family from the start of the pregnancy and it was (and is) wonderful! He's an amazing mini version of YOU. Full of personality, life, and JOY! It's been so awesome to learn to be parents together.
Throughout the years that we have known each other, God has been at work in our lives. He has taken us from being Christians who were striving -- to becoming Christ followers who are seeking first the Kingdom of God... going after the things He's called us to... and finally knowing that we are loved, by the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords just because we are His children. Oh, the freedom!
Now we are in a new season of life. Ready to run. Ready for new adventures.
And I just want to take the opportunity to say that it is an honor to do life together with YOU!
I began praying for a Godly husband when I was in middle school and I know that my parents prayed for you since the time of my birth. You have told me that you were praying for me too. GOD ANSWERS PRAYER! He has brought us together! For marriage, for friendship, for parenting, and for calling. May His Will Be Done In Our Lives!!!
I love you. I am in love with you.
