20 Years

I married my best friend 20 years ago today.
 It amazes me how time has flown by us so quickly. We have been through a lot together over the years. And I would surely do it all over again. Of course from the many years of learning these life lessons, I would want to do it even better. God gave us what He did and He knows what was and is best for us. We have grown through all the ups and downs, the losses, the pains but most of all we have grown in faith, in love, trust and the joys. We are not perfect, that is for certain, we admit those flaws, and try to be better everyday and sometimes it can be a struggle. It is hard work. But so very worth it. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Our flaws are stitched together with good intentions. It is amazing to me that God put us two together a little over 20 years ago for His own glory. He brought us to Him, together as we professed our faith in Jesus. He gifted us two beautiful children & one in heaven, and He carried us through trials and the best of this life. The outcome has been rewarding. Our faith in Him has grown as He has also led us to serve Him and His church. My wonderful husband is a man of God. He is my hero. An awesome husband, a delightful father and so easy to love. I am blessed, for God has given me such wonderful gifts.
I pray God will continue to bless our marriage in the years to come, that we would only grow closer, that I would be the best help meet I can possibly be to such a great man who is devoted and  loves me and our children unconditionally. I look forward to the next many years with this sweet man...A faithful husband indeed, my true love and the bestest friend 
anyone could ever ask for.

Here is to many more.
I love you Mr. Darling
Forever and always!
