Happy Anniversary to US!!!!

Today, John and I are celebrating 8 years of marriage and 14 years of life together.  The events of our life for most of the last 8 years have be quite challenging quite often but our marriage has been rock solid thanks to the Lord's faithfulness.  I love this man with all my heart.  We fuss and fight but we are so in love with each other.  There is NO ONE else I could ever imagine sharing my life with - even if it often means chasing wild hairs with him!!!!  I could not imagine a better father for my children. I am so thankful that the Lord redeemed our relationship and that he chose to not only let it survive but He made it THRIVE!!!!  I will completely give God all the glory for our relationship.  It is He who has put people in our lives that taught us how to be a couple - to fight fair, to talk openly, to play and have fun.  It is He that continues to show us our sin and to walk us through the same struggles sometimes 50 times before we see progress.  It is He who we delight in and desire to live out our days as husband and wife glorifying.  Thank you God that your plan for me was John and that you gave me my best!!!!!  
I have written our sweet story of God's redemption in several post below for those of you who care to read it!!!!!  I LOVE OUR STORY!!! It is a perfect picture of how GOD MAKES ALL THINGS NEW!!!!!

I love your story. I love how you have written it. I love how you have shared it. What a beautiful picture of God's Love for us and how he "woo's His Flock" to himself. This truly is a love story that is played out in every Christians life. You just got lucky and had it played out twice in your life. I Love you Amy.
