I remembered so many other moments, Phillips Resturant at the Inner Harbor, The Man in the Iron Mask, Forum at SBI, our many battles about politics, movies, TV, music. I remembered the “Random Style”, the no Video Games while on the phone rule. I remember you letting me chase my dreams to work for SEGA, even though I know you wanted me to move closer to you for that banking job. I remembered cross country flights to visit and sad goodbyes as we parted. I remembered that early morning in February when it all solidified for me and I promised you the rest of my life.
I looked around my apartment and wondered if I was ready to be your husband. I knew I wanted to be a husband. I had prayed for a wife and family but was I ready to be the husband that you needed? To be the leader, the provider, the lover that God had set apart for you. That’s what had eventually quieted my doubts. God spoke into my spirit that He had set us apart for each other. That He had a purpose, not just for you or me but for both of us together. So when I left my apartment for the last time, I knew when we returned it would be ours and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I just wanted to let you know that I wouldn’t change any of it. Seven years of being with the most wonderful woman in the world. Seven years of loving and being loved. Seven Years striving. I would lying if I said that it was easy. I know that I am still growing but we both know that God isn’t through with either of us yet. Let’s keep walking the narrow path together. It makes us stick close to each other.
Happy Anniversary to My Beautiful Bride
