"Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away." 6th Year Anniversary.

I can't believe that today is our 6 year anniversary. Time flies. I just feel thankful. Thankful that I have an amazing husband, whom I truly love with all my heart. Thankful that we are still in love. Thankful that we just love spending time together. Thankful for GRACE. It is by Grace that we even met, married, and are celebrating 6 years of marriage. Marriage is such a gift. The Mr. and I have been attached at the hip since day one. We have tried to continue to date one another even after our wedding and the birth of our daughter. Sometimes that means taking her with us on dates, and sometimes that means planning dates at home. Whatever the case, we have made each other a priority. Most importantly, we have tried to make sure God is at the center of all aspects of our life. Not so we will have a perfect marriage or life (there is no such thing), but simply because WE NEED JESUS. I need Jesus all day, everyday, 24/7. Not sure where I would be without Him. I really do not know how any marriage could survive with out Jesus Christ. Growing up we both witnessed marriages that failed. We knew when we said "I do" that we would be committed to one another no matter what. My husband and I do not have a perfect marriage, we have ups and downs like every couple. We have had really hard things to deal with that have stretched us, tested us, grew us, and molded us. Even things that have even brought out the worst in us. But God in His amazing mercy and grace has taken the junk of our lives, and continues to make us like Him. Such Grace! I really believe I have the best husband in the world. I am thankful for the way He remains faithful to Christ no matter what. I love the way he desires to make the Word of God known to others. He loves and serves our family sacrificially. He treats me like a princess. He is a great father. I know I am loved beyond measure by him. Thankful for this sweet love and marriage that God has given us! My prayer is that God would give us 50 years together. Here is one of my favorite scriptures that was on our wedding invitation:
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away."~ Song of Soloman 8:6-7
