And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Eleven Years

Eleven years ago today, I married this man...
He isn't MY dream husband!!
I couldn't have dreamt of such an amazing man!

Though we all dream of happily ever after, the Lord had different plans.

He placed a man next to my side that meant "the two become one.:

Then, when I forgot about our wedding, he took me back and walked me through....

Then, he shared his family with me....

I got to see what an amazing baseball star he was...

 He scared off the monsters!!

He helped me climb the rough spots....
He held me at the peak & celebrated!!!!

He showed me examples of love everlasting!!

He loved me!

He became a shark...wait, no, he protected me!!!


Not always happiness, but joy!

He kept my perspective pointed in the right direction...

He made me feel like a Princess!!!

He shared many kisses with me!!!

He's added so much fun to every experience!!!

He stayed by my side!!!

He pointed out the beauty of God's creation to me!

He sat with me!!!
He's kept us on course!

Again...when I forget, he reminds me....

where he proposed!!!

When I could no longer drive,
he took me to a special place of

remembrance and
encouragement and the place the Lord shared with me that
we had a baby on the way!!!
He showed me life!!
He showed me what God meant in Ephesians 5:22-33

Though much more has occurred, I'll stop there so that I can say, "Thank you, my prince!  Thank you for showing me what a husband looks like, for showing me what a Man After Christ looks like, for teaching me about a love I never knew or understood or dreamed could really happen!  You are more than a dream come true, you are a dream created!  Thank you for walking by my side, pushing my wheelchair, carrying my bags, hugging me, praying with me, loving me for the last eleven years.  We have many more to go and I can't imagine spending them with any one but you!  Happy Eleventh Anniversary, my love, my man, my prince, my wildest dreams put to shame!!!"
