Four Years

It seems like we've been married much longer than four years. In a good way.  I think it's because we had known each other for so long and have been in so many seasons/locations in our four years of marriage.  
That being said:  I can't believe it was FOUR years ago that we got to gather with so many family and friends and celebrate the joining of our lives together.  

The theme of our wedding was Psalm 34:3:  "Glorify the Lord with me.  Let us exalt His name together."  I pray that our first four years of marriage have been glorifying to the Lord.  

We haven't always been perfect.  We are sinful people.  But God has given us grace and forgiveness that we extend to each other pretty easily.  I pray God continues to use our marriage to bring us closer to Him and to bring others closer to Him.

Dear Matthew, 
Thank you for being my husband and for loving me so well.  I feel safe and secure in your arms and by your side.  Thank you for being so full of faith and for helping me to remember the big picture.  You amaze me!  I'm so blessed for getting to spend my life with you.  I love learning with you and from you.  
You are absolutely hilarious, and I hope that I will never grow tired of your silliness and your wittiness.  I love that you love to make me laugh.  
You are also incredibly caring.  You don't want everyone to know, but you really are a very sweet husband.  
Thank you for choosing me as your bride and for believing in me.  I have so much respect for you and the man you are allowing God to make you.  I very much look forward to seeing where the next four years, fourteen years, and forty years have taken us.  

Yours Forever,
