We got to celebrate our 12th Wedding anniversary a few weeks ago!!! Ben wore the shirt that he was wearing when I first saw him and went, "when did he get so cute?" I wore the shirt that I apparently wore to all of our Sunday date dinners through college! The good thing is that we can still wear them, the bad thing is that we still have them 14+ years later!!!
We went to our favorite spot for dinner and learning that it was our anniversary, you can see above the gift they gave to us!! It was so sweet!!!
I'm so blessed to be married to this man!!!
I praise the Lord for my Ephesians 5:22-33 Man:
Marriage Like Christ and the ChurchWives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.
