a superbowl wedding anniversary

Last year, on February 5th, I walked down the aisle towards the love of my life. I looked into the eyes of a man who sacrifices sleep to make sure we are provided for. I held hands with a man and stood before our friends, family and God while holding on to the promises we made to each other. And 12 days from now, we will be celebrating one year together.

Our wedding date was originally the 4th which would have been a Saturday in 2012. Due to a long story that still causes my blood pressure to rise, we had to change it to that Sunday. But it was all in God's plan. Everyone that was invited were members of our church and our wedding was held right after service. Yes, my church loves me that much. To go even further into how much my husband and I are loved...it was Super Bowl Sunday. Giants against Patriots. We're from FL so the deacons and bretheren of the church sacrificed their football Sunday to celebrate with us. There is no way to really thank them for all they did. Our husband and I are working on a way to show them how special they are to us, but it's going to take some time to pull it off.

I write all of this to say that our wedding anniversary will not always be a reminder to who my husband and I are to each other, but what true love really looks like when you are really surrounded by Christ-focused people. So, we're not only celebrating our committment to each other, but our committment to Christ to continue serving Him in all we do, continue being obedient and pray without ceasing always in all ways.

This year, my sweets decided he's in charge of the planning of our day. As long as we leave our own backyard and are in another area code, I'm over the moon happy! I'm looking forward to this adventure everyday...

Ephesians 3:20-21 "Now to him who is able to do immeasureably more than all we ask or imagne, according to His power that is at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
