Aaron: you are my hero in every sense of the word.You are my role model, my best friend, my forever crush, my deepest love, my closest brother. You are all of the most beautiful relationships entwined into the greatest human love I have ever known….
October 14th, 2012 – quite possibly the best day of my life! Just a handful of days ago, Aaron and I celebrated our very first anniversary of this wonderful, crazy union of marriage!
HOW CAN I EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE LIFE WITH THIS MAN?
It is perfectly beautiful.
No, not because our lives are perfect. Not because we are perfect. Far from it! It is because we serve the most MAGNIFICENT GOD in the universe, and by His grace, we get to serve Him TOGETHER!
This has been a year of abundant blessing, of crazy love, of much learning, and at times – painful personal growth.
But it has been the most beautiful year of my life!
How can I begin to thank God for giving me my Aaron? He is truly the most amazing man I have ever met….his gentleness toward me, his constant loving forgiveness, his depth of God-given wisdom, his servant’s heart, his passion for our God and zeal for truth, his romance and friendship – I can hardly write this post without feeling tears well within me. I have been given a man who lives a life of worship – a man who has completely consecrated himself to God, and then – (here’s the crazy part!) to me.
I will not cease to praise my God for His provision for Aaron and I this year, as we stepped both into our first year of marriage AND our first year of full-time ministry – on our own this could have been a disaster, but God has been SO FAITHFUL and SO GOOD, and this year has been the coolest thing ever!!
I PRAISE GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS AND FAITHFULNESS TO ME!!
There is always SOMETHING to praise God for. I praise Him today for a husband and a marriage beyond what I had even imagined!!
WHAT ARE YOU PRAISING HIM FOR TODAY? =)
