Amazingly my husband and I just had our 10 year anniversary on December 30, 2010. I write amazingly because time has truly flown by since meeting him in 1998. We have a remarkable dating and engagement story, but I think so much more has happened in the last 10 years that our story is fascinatingly appealing if you are someone who likes to see the hand of God moving and working in peoples lives. In the past 10 years we have had tragedy, testings, and triumphs. We have grown both spiritually and developed physically. We have set our sights on the possibilities that are just beyond our reach and learned to trust that God's love is always present and His desire for us is to bless us and keep us in right relationship with Him.
When asked by my husband, "After 10 years, what do you love about me?" My response was that in 10 years he has shown me that he IS the man I hoped he would be when we said I Do. Faithful. Loving. A Man of Faith. Trustworthy. An incredible Dad. Loves me and has loved me through pregnancies, weight gain, weight loss, temporary periods of insanity and overall life. He is who I wanted in a life- long partner. He is my night in shining armor.
In 10 Years I have graduated from College, Lost my grandma (maternal) and granddad (paternal), started a dance studio ministry, a theater ministry,a dance company, a coffee shop, a musical theater program in a local christian school, and I am currently planting a church with my husband. I have given birth to two beautiful children. Samuel, who was born with Highland's Membrane Disease. ( His lungs just didn't want to work right the first 7 days of life.) He is totally healed from that and a very active, very handsome, very smart 6 soon to be 7 year old. Zion was born with spina bifida . She had a teathered chord and had surgery at 6 months to correct it. Now 3 years later she has been given a complete bill of health. Jeremiah and I praise God for this recent confirmation of her complete healing. We found this news out in October of 2010.
So now we look to the next 10 years and what they will bring. Jeremiah and I are looking forward to taking on life together. Sharing Jesus with people around us, holding each other during times of tragedy and celebrating during the times of triumph! If you know us, we hope you feel a part of our family. It is our desire to live life with you and be there for you. We are always asking God to Bless you and Keep you!
To Everyone may 2011 bring you closer in relationship with the Lord as you seek His will and plan for your life. Be blessed in your coming and going. Stay prayerful and loving.
