Six Years Ago Saturday

...we were wed! This post was a long time coming because of a sick toddler. Six years ago there was no toddler. I was holding other people's babies...
...although we did have a baby cat...We travelled the world!Okay, it was just England, not the world. Still, it was a great adventure! Look, we both had more hair then, too! ;)
We may not ever get uninterrupted sleep again...
...ample time for reading,or money to travel to foriegn lands...but that's not important.
Our journey so far has been exhilirating, challenging, joyful, painful, full of tears and laughter. I am so blessed to have you in my life, and I thank God every day that he led me to you, a compassionate, gentle man, full of the Spirit. Your strong faith has given mine new life, for I never really knew God like I know him now, and that's because of you!
You are a wonderful father to our children, and through your patient and gracious nature I know they will be encouraged to serve the Lord, have confidence in their abilities and discover their talents.
My dear, wonderful husband, my confidant and friend, I love you so much, and I thank you for loving me. I can't wait to see where God leads us next...

that was beautifully written. As a matter of fact, many times when I do read your paragraphs, I wonder, why are you not a writer? VERY good, Sherri! And again, congrats!
Love you!
