9 Years

We are celebrating 9 years of marriage today. I still look at this man and can't believe that he picked me. A single mom with no clear path in life.

I would be dishonest to say that it has not been difficult. It has. But is there anything worth having that's easy?

He is my partner, my friend, my love. We have been through too many tough times to count. But I can always count on him walking right beside me, often times, in front shielding me from the dangers. He stepped into my life when there was nothing redeeming for me give back. And loved me anyway.

Sound familiar?

Sounds similiar to my relationship with Christ. And you know what ladies? That's how they should love us! As Christ loves His church.

I am so very blessed.

You are blessed. And a few years ago, I would have read this post and had no idea how to relate, but at this moment, I know EXACTLY what you mean as James and I have the very same kind of marriage. God has truly been put first and we are blessed by the covenant of marriage. I wish I could teach people how to get where we are, but I know that it is by trial, faith and perseverance. Congratulations and happy anniversary, dear friends!
