Today marks twenty-three years of marriage for Brian and I, and I can honestly say that I feel like all my dreams have come true.
In all reality, I didn’t even know to dream this big.
I had no idea of what a marriage with such unity, love and oneness looked like or felt like.
I had no idea what it would feel like to be loved and accepted so unconditionally by someone.
I had no idea of how such love could heal a little girl’s broken heart.
I had no idea what it would feel like to live with such a feeling of safety and protection.
I had no idea what it would feel like to be so cherished and nurtured.
I had no idea what it would be like to encouraged and picked up over and over again.
Our marriage has not been without its bumps and deep valleys, but I am humbled and in awe of the keeping power of God’s grace in this marriage. We have walked through things that can destroy a marriage and only by His grace came out stronger and closer.
Humbled, that is the right word for it. Really, if you knew the two of us, with all our flaws and brokenness you would be in awe of His grace too, trust me
When I think of a verse to describe Brian the following comes to mind . . .
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
Happy Anniversary to the man of my dreams! I love you forever and always
