Poppa is the kind of man mothers and fathers pray to God for, for their daughter's future spouse. He's the smartest man I know, he loves God and serves Him, he works hard and doesn't quit, he's loving, humble, meek, and he loves me like Christ loves the church. He's dependable, forgiving, and he's the kind of father that a woman prays for to find in a spouse. He's my biggest cheerleader and supporter in whatever I do. He's my best friend and I seriously hurt at times at how hard we laugh together. He's the kind of husband that shares in all of the responsibilities. Because I work full time he whole heartily helps me at home with cooking, cleaning, and taking care of Monkey. He's the head of our household and I trust him with mine and my child's life and I'd die for him. I could go on and on about him but I don't want to bore you. Needless to say I love this man more and more every day and am beyond thankful to God for him.
We married at our church's headquarters in New Knoxville, Ohio in a beautiful Biblical Research Center. It was a beautiful Spring day and I love replaying that day over and over in my head.
Our colors were purple with touches of yellow, I really wanted to carry yellow roses in my bouquet being that I'm an official Yellow Rose of Texas, (yes there really are such things) and he really wanted purple, at least I thought he did, in talking of color choices I threw out different options and he said I really like purple, later I discovered that wasn't exactly what he meant but it was too late by then. So we made the two colors work together. We had a very small ceremony with just 2 attendants each, the clergy was someone who is still so dear and near to my heart, he taught me so much about serving God.
Oh and I didn't know where we were going on our honeymoon, he kept it a secret, but he took me to Niagra Falls, a place I'd always wanted to go. It was amazing and beautiful and I hope one year to go back on our anniversary.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
I am honored to be this man's wife, to respect him, to honor him, to cherish him and to sustain him and to love him with all my heart, in every situation, under every condition according to God's Word all the days of my life.
So that's Me Monday, Happy Anniversary Poppa, you bring my life so much joy and love.
Hope ya'll enjoyed getting to know me a little more this week, thank you for bearing with me as I gush and mush a little over my hubby on this wonderful day.
