Fourteen years ago today, I married Thomas. The day itself, was not perfect. It was stressful and filled with surprises, pretty much like our life. The joy of that day far outweighed anything else that I was feeling. It was as if I had a secret from the rest of the world, and I could not stop smiling. Thomas was and still is my best friend. He is my family. Sometimes, I can’t believe the way that God has knit us together, it doesn’t seem fair to the rest of the world.
We were not cinderella and the prince, thats for sure, nonetheless….our God is a redeemer and a restoration expert, and he has a happily ever after in store for us.
Thomas was married when I met him. I am sorry, but I am forgiven. Thomas is a new creation ! I celebrate THAT in my heart more than the fact that we have been married 14 years, if the Lord had not redeemed him, we would not have made it. The odds were stacked against us from the start. It is a love story that is not easy to tell. We live with the consequences every day, but in the end, when all is said and done…we are FOUND, not lost. We know LOVE, and we know the cost. The Lord is our King and this marriage is our offering.
honey, I love you. When the Lord made you a new creation, he made you just right for me. You are gentle and strong at the same time. You show me the Father’s love through our children every day.
