Anniversary | My Truest Blessing

Thursday, August 5, 2010

I love you.
Not as I did then.

But with the fervor of 4 years of marriage. 1460 days that we've shared our thoughts, dreams, heartaches, ideals, battles and victories with each other. We were so little then, but our love had such momentum. It carried us through both great and difficult times. It also grew. Maturing and developing, our love now shows itself in many forms. I know you better than anyone else that I've ever known. It seems unreal to me that you've only been a part of my life for 5 years.

Tony, you are everything good about me. I wouldn't be myself without your strength, love or faith. We said it in our vows and I will believe it until I can reason no more, "You are my truest blessing."

Read during our ceremony by my StepDad:
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which bind them all together in perfect unity.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
