Happy 10 years!

Well, today marks 10 years of marriage.  Let's be honest, marriage is no walk in the park.  Life is hard.  REAL. HARD.   Most marriages these days don't last.  True, lasting relationships with people in general is a difficult task to accomplish.  Throughout the years of our marriage I have learned (and I'm STILL learning) to depend on God for help.  I am so thankful for a God that picked Seth Deerman as my husband!  Seth has shown me the things God describes as love (he is patient, kind, not jealous or boastful, proud or rude, does not demand his own way, is not irritable, keeps no record of wrongs, never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance).   Sure, we have had our moments, dry spells and tough issues to deal with; but our communication lines have always stayed open to one another.  For that, I am so thankful! 

Seth, I want you to know you mean the world to me.  (I think you already know that)  I have never felt more loved, safe and free to be myself - warts and all.  You are my best friend and you know me better than I do...which is annoying sometimes!  I am so proud to call you mine and I don't mind telling the world that!  You are humble, hard-working and hilarious all at the same time.  The awesome, fun-loving dad you are to Grey and Sybil makes my heart so happy.  I am still learning to be a soft, safe place for you to land, rather than a hard one;  but today I promise to love you and fight for our marriage through prayer for the next ten years.  Let's grow even closer and strengthen our relationship to be the best example of how two fallen people can come together, with Christ at the center, and love well.  

Happy 10 year anniversary, good lookin' !
