7 Years Ago Today
I’m laying in bed writing this, watching my sweet husband sleep next to me. This man that just 7 short years ago I vowed my life to. I was so young. There was so much I didn’t know about life, about being a wife, about what it meant to be married. Collectively as a married couple we both made so many mistakes. Some of them were small and insignificant. Some of them were life-altering, soul-shattering, unforgivable mistakes. Yet, I sit here amazed. Despite it all, we are here. Together. More bonded and intertwined than I could ever have imagined.
We give the glory of restoration in our marriage to Christ.
All of it because of Christ.
My Husband. My Champion.
I love you because you have a valiant heart. A heart that fights for love. A heart that fights for our marriage. A heart that is pure. A heart after God.
I love you because you give me the gift of forgiveness that I don’t deserve. You realize that we are two broken people- broken even on our best day- striving to live this life for Jesus. You see how Christ has forgiven you and you extend that to me on a daily basis.
I love you because you make me laugh. You make me laugh so hard I can’t catch my breath. You make me laugh so my abs hurt. You make me laugh so hard that one time I peed a little… True Story.
I love you because you are an incredible provider. In a world that gets the love of money confused with everything, you don’t. You have provided us a beautiful home with luxuries that allow us to be comfortable. I want for nothing because you are a good steward of what Christ has given us.
I love you because you are going to be the most incredible daddy. When that time comes for our little family of you, me and Miss Bella to grow, I know you are going to take my breath away with the way you help me raise our babies. It’s going to be awesome.
On our 7th Anniversary, everything has changed, yet nothing has changed. I am a woman humbled by the love of a man.
Your beautiful soul.
Your unshakable character.
Your steadfast integrity.
Your resolute forgiveness.
Your unyielding, unconditional, unwavering love.
Happy Anniversary, Hubbz.
You are my Champion.
