...I married my best friend...and I thought I loved him then.
Recently someone asked me what I liked/loved about him then...what first attracted me to him and what I love about him now.
The first thing that attracted me to him was his voice...he was singing...then I stopped and looked at him and man was he CUTE! But time would tell that there was so much more to him than outward appearances. All the things I loved about him then are still the same now (except for the hair. He had gorgeous hair, but he has a beautiful bald head now...and I love it no less), but there is so much more.
I can hardly believe that we've been married 20 years. We've worked at our marriage, prioritized it and each other, but more than that, we have put the Lord first and He has shown us what real love is. We are a work in progress. I thought when I walked down the aisle to his grinning face that I couldn't love him more, and I couldn't have...on my own. But God has worked in both of us, molding and making us, and teaching us to love one another because God is love.
I can honestly say that I love my husband more now than I ever did and I anticipate that love growing to a depth I can't even fathom at this moment, but only because of the One who is love.
I hope we have many more years together, Love.
