Four year have come and gone so quickly. And they've been the best four years of my life. Our love has grown so much. All the challenges and changes we've gone through have, by God's grace, only made us stronger. Marriage is truly an amazing gift. It's so easy to take my wonderful husband for granted, but he has been the greatest blessing of my life apart from Christ. That is in part because he shows me Christ. He loves, serves and leads in a way that points me to Him. Of course, he's not perfect. He does things that annoy me and I do things that annoy him. Goodness, I am definitely not anywhere close to perfect either. We're both desperately flawed. But that's the part of marriage I love so much. Two imperfect people come together in an imperfect marriage and God makes it into something beautiful. He is the Perfecter. He takes the broken and makes a masterpiece. Over the past four years, I think we've seen a tiny glimpse of that. His work in us is really just beginning. I can't wait to see what He paints through the intertwining of our lives, especially now that our two will become three.
I love you so much Jonathan! I'm so glad you chose to be committed to me four years ago. I have never once regretted choosing you. I am a lucky girl. You've exceeded everything I thought I wanted. Happy anniversary!
