Wow. It's hard to believe it's been two years already. For those who have been married a long time, two years probably seems really small. And it is considering our hope that God will give us many, many years together. But for us it's just gone by so fast that it's hard to believe that two years ago I was all dressed up ready to walk down the aisle to join in marriage to my best friend.
We celebrate year number two a little differently than we did year number one. Year number one ended with a lot of anticipation and excitement. Year number two is ending with more pain and sadness, but still anticipation and excitement over a new ministry and new home. This is life together. Some years will bring great joy and happiness. Some will bring overwhelming sorrow. This is the fulfillment of the vows we made to one another two years ago today. They are still true. In fact, the are even truer today than they were then. They were hypothetical situations then. Today they are realities.
In sickness and in health,
For richer or for poorer,
Til death shall part us.
I love you, babe. I pledged you my love then and you will have it for the rest of our lives.
