27 Years filled with love and adventure

This marriage that God has blessed me with has been a grand adventure.

It started off with a crazy trip to Hawaii and a catamaran cruise, and has lead me all over the United states, filled with times of laughter, excitement, and too many blessings to count.

I couldn't have asked for a better man to walk beside me and share my life.  He loves me despite my enormous faults, and never fails to bring entertaining times to our life on a daily basis.

He allows me to bloom wherever I need to be, and supports my itchy traveling nature.

We have seen our fair share of complications and roadblocks that every married couple goes through, but during those times we have learned to rest in God's grace and mercy, and draw closer to Him and each other.

My life is a daily event of silliness, and quirky things that would drive a lesser man to the brink of a meltdown, but through it all, we have learned to love each other more, and to embrace those strange and quirky ways about each other, and instead of going crazy and running away from each other, to appreciate those things that make us unique and our marriage something that works for us.

The best parts of us are shown to us daily in our two beautiful daughters.  Evidence of our amazing love, and God's faithfulness to us.  How awesome is that...... those things about our great love living daily before us, reminding us of why we said I do, so many years ago.

My oldest, just started her marriage, and it is amazing to see all that love and promise blooming in their new life together.   

I look back at my parent's marriage, and how they taught me throughout my life how to love deeply and freely.   They truly loved each other, completely, I learned the precious gift of romance, and dedication from them, and try to show that in my own marriage.  

A favorite saying of my mom and dad was..... "The love in your heart wasn't put there to stay,  love isn't love until you give it away..."

I try to live that to it's fullest, and invest in people around me, sharing the love I have received, and make their lives better by loving them in any way I can to make a difference.  

It is wonderful to touch people in a small way, and show them the love of Christ,  some people never get that, and when I can have the opportunity, it is a blessing to my life.

It has been a wonder life so far, and I look forward to seeing where God leads us, I am sure there will be lots of interesting places, and times ahead for us, and I have the most amazing man to share my journey with...

Thankfully God will be right alongside us as we proceed forward, sharing a life filled with love, and so many people to share it with.

Thanks Darling for this marriage and our adventure together.....
