7. Years.

** Warning...Total sappiness to follow**

I cannot believe that I have been married to my best friend and favorite person in the world for 7 years.
Though our marriage and life together began on broken and shaken grounds, our God has been so good to us. So Faithful. He has helped us fight through many many trials. He has carried us through many hurts. He has redeemed us and continues to make us NEW every day.
Everyday is a new and glorious day with fresh and new mercy and grace being poured out upon us.
I couldn't have picked a better person to spend my life with.
To be parents with.
To grow old with.
To serve God with.
To cry with.
To rejoice with.
To mourn with.
To celebrate with.
To share EMBARRASSING moments with.
To share life's greatest adventures with.
My love, you are the perfect husband for me.
I am thankful that God placed you in my path that night at Midland College.
I am thankful that even though we screwed somethings up (and continue to screw somethings up) you stuck with me and we fought through those dark hours.
I am thankful you see past my quirkiness and my slowness and you see my heart.
I am thankful you love the Lord and you do your very best to lead me closer to the Father and you do you very best to guide our children to know Him.
Your heart for God and holiness is my favorite thing about you.
Followed by your silly and odd sense of humor.
Your discipline.
Your perseverance through trials and road blocks.
Your faith.
Your passion for loving God with your mind.
And introducing other to loving God with their mind.
Your eagerness to spend time with our children, tickling them, singing to them and taking them on dates.
Your eagerness to spend time with me. Even if that means staying up until 1 am watching back to back episodes of Downton Abbey.
I love that you love Downton Abbey more then me. ;)
You are really great at encouraging me and cheering me on when I am trying to reach goals that seem impossible for me to reach.
I love that when I don't reach those goals you don't beat me beat about it you just smile and shake your head.
I love that you went to Africa with me. Twice. And listened to the call to adopt and acted on it.
You were my life raft when I felt like I was drowning in that season.
I have 7 years of wonderful and cherished memories with you.
I am excited to make more and to share this crazy whirlwind of a life with you.
I am excited to see what adventure God takes us on next.
You are my favorite and I wouldn't let you go for anything.
We are bound to one another.
For better, for worse.
For richer, poorer.
In sickness and health.
Until death do us part.
(Even death... I think we should totally be together!)
Here's to 7 wonderful years and many many more exciting and adventurous years together.
I love you more than I have ever found a way to say.
I am bound to you and you to me.
Happy 7th Anniversary Love!!
