29 years ago today, Jason and I were married! We dated for almost 2 years so we were ready for this big day! It seemed like the day dragged on forever! The ceremony didn’t begin until 8:00 p.m. I remember it rained for awhile that afternoon (showers of blessing I like to call it). I was so nervous and anticipating this big day that I dreamed the night before our wedding that it was time to walk down the aisle and I was still in my pajamas! (I tend to have crazy dreams like that when I have something big that I’m anticipating the next day). :)
I can honestly say that our love has grown over the years. I wouldn’t have thought that possible but it’s a deeper kind of love. We’ve gone through many chapters in our lives and I wouldn’t trade any part of it. I value his opinion, his time, his sacrifice, his talents, his leadership, his approval, and most of all, his love.
I appreciate and love the way he shows me I’m important every day. It’s the little things that he does every day that really makes me happy – opening my car door, holding my hand every chance he gets (even in the car), his arm tucked around me sitting in church, his “hey baby” when he walks by or calls me, noticing when I’m wearing something new or have my hair fixed different, or just telling me I look pretty (what girl doesn’t like to hear that?). These are just a few of the little things he does that mean so much in making me feel loved, valued, and cherished.
I thank the Lord for writing our love story and for the gift he gave me in Jason. If you’d like to read more about us, you can read here, here, here , here or here.
Today as you read this, we’re off on a little overnight getaway….the first and only one we’ve had since Luke came home. Joy and Luke are getting pampered by Grandmama and Pop; Colt has the house to himself; And we have our very own cabin. :)
