Celebrating Two Years With My Bride


My Beautiful Wife, originally uploaded by Sola Lumina Captura.

It was two years to this date that my wife and I celebrated the union which God had ordained before time. What can I say in just a few words about two wonderful years? In such an occasion, words seem not only insufficient but almost belittling to the immensity of what I feel and know in my heart.
One of the things I have learned over the past two years is that I am a man of many faults. You know they say, "God knows you best and loves you most." Well, I agree, and my wife would be next in line. She loves me not because I am perfect, but because she has perfect love for me.
I only ask the Lord to be gracious to me to spare me many moments in the future to express how infinitely grateful I am to have a wife like Dusti. Sadly enough, too many moments have passed in the past two years where I have not said "I Love You" enough, even more so demonstrated that love in "laying down my life as Christ did for the church."
Two years. What a journey! What a blessing! To have at my side my best friend and an audience to listen to my sermons on the couch and whipser gently to me tender words to soothe a weary soul. I could go on in unending praise for this woman who is better than any dream and more beautiful than anything I could ever imagine. I love you Dusti. As one humbled by the greatness of your love and amazed at your passionate devotion to our marriage, I today, with solemnly joyous lips, utter "I Do."

I do love you. Happy Anniversary.
