Today marks 8 years of marriage, and it's a bittersweet day. We have had our lives completely shaken up and spilled out, and miraculously have found the way to put them back together. But though the last couple of years brought pain, they also created between us strength and far more devotion than I thought possible. God continuously spoke over our marriage so that when darkness came, we would have that reminder... He brought us together, He had plans for us together.
Today, rather than focus on darkness, I'm focusing on the amazing man that my husband is. I'm focusing on his good heart, his convictions, and his relentless devotion. I have loved him for over ten years. This man has made me laugh like no one could, he's comforted my fears, he's steadied my step when I've lost my way, and he's given me so many beautiful moments along the journey.
When I've tried to think of how my life would be without him, I've found it impossible. My life, and who I am, is so mixed in with him that even if he weren't here any more, he would be all over me and so much a part of me. The bible talks about becoming one in marriage, and I believe that we have achieved that in many ways. I believe that God had a wonderful plan in mind when he brought us together, and I know that we will achieve it- together.
