Seven years ago today I became one with the woman of my dreams. Over the last seven years we have been through a lot in our marriage and I have been fortunate enough to be able to share some of my reflections after the fourth, fifth, and sixth years of marriage.
I won’t go repeating all those things here, because honestly I still feel exactly the same. I still know that an order from marriage to work, we have to serve, respect, and love each other the way that God commands; and honoring God needs to be the top priority in our marriage.
Celebrating Our 7 Year Wedding Anniversary
However, I do want to take the time to thank my wife for being the most amazing person to me. She continues to love and support me in so many ways. I don’t know where I would be without a woman like that by my side, and I thank God that I haven’t had to find out. She overlooks my shortcomings, forgives my mistakes, and always makes me feel loved and appreciated.
Over the last year, I would estimate that we have had our worst stretch physically in a very long time. We have talked about some of what we have gone through on our blogs and even my YouTube channel, but of course we haven’t shared all the details.
Us going through these difficult times has really seemed to bring us closer together. The more we have to rely on God and each other during times of suffering, the more our love continues to grow. So even with her chronic migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, along with my Crohn’s disease, and extremely low testosterone with all of its symptoms, our marriage continues to thrive and I wouldn’t change a thing (except of course for me to be less sinful, less selfish, and more loving)!
I would really appreciate it if you took the time to read the articles linked above (I’ll link them here in case you’re too lazy to scroll up) that I wrote after four years, five years, and six years of being married – and share with us your thoughts and reflections.
To all of our family and friends, I just want to thank you for helping us build a strong and loving marriage. Your prayers, examples, and even the time you spend with us means a lot, and our marriage would not be where it is today without all of you.
To my wife: I love you, sweetheart, and I pray that God will give us many years together to continue to grow in Christ and grow in our love toward one another.
