5 years.

on this day 5 years ago we were saying i do's.

there was ice all around, but our hearts were warm.
we were praying for power at the church, but we'd settle for candlelight. 
nothing was stopping this day, not even an ice storm.

it was finals week and your graduation day, but you wanted to marry me instead.
we could wait no longer.

the day had come,
we'd finally be joined as one.
i walked down the aisle to you and we vowed our lives,
together forever, for better or for worse,
before our God.

my voice was shaky, but not in fear.
my heart was strong because i know who holds yours.

an eternity with you is not even enough, but i'm thankful for it and for you and every breath we have together. you are my person. my very best friend. and i am yours. i love you with all that i have and am thankful that He loved us first.

thank you for the past 5 years. you have led well. my love for you is stronger and we have grown so much. i pray for many more years of worshipping our God side by side on earth and for eternity in heaven!

praise Him from whom all blessings flow!
happy anniversary babe, i love you.
