15 years down….forever to go!!! Happy Love anniversary to you.
“You have taught me what true love really is…
For the last 15 years, I have proudly carried your name as a badge of honor.
October 18th will always be the date that my world became a new and a better place.
I wouldn’t trade the joy, the pain, the thrilling moments or the low ones for any other experience. You are my love, my life, my everything.
I am not just your lover. I am your best student. The biggest lesson you have taught me, in our first 15 years of covenant, is how to manage my emotional response when things don’t go according to plan. You are level headed, never angry, cool, peaceful, objective and most of all… you forgive. I have watched you forgive people whom I felt didn’t deserve it. It would make me so frustrated when you restore them and cover them, despite their wrongs. I didn’t understand this until one day when I needed forgiveness from you. You had every right to throw the book at me, but, you embraced me, covered me and forgave me from your heart. Your forgiving nature still baffles me and has inspired me to model my responses after you.
Your love has humbled me. Your love has transformed me.
Thank you for being the world’s best example of Ephesians 5. Thank you for loving me, like Christ Jesus loves the Church.
