Michael and I have been together for almost 19 months now. It is amazing how I have grown to love him so much more. It is so true that you fall more in love…and I know that I don’t even know the half of it. I can’t wait to be celebrating our 10th anniversary and look back and see how much more we love each other and how much we have grown in Christ. And then our 25th. And then our 50th!!!
I am thankful for our giddy love. The kind that is often referred to as “new love.”
I am thankful for our romantic love. The kind that says “I love you” and means it from the bottom of our hearts.
I am thankful for our commitment love. The kind that draws close to the other even (and especially!) during difficult times.
I am thankful for our forever love. The kind that says “til death do us part.”
I am thankful for our spontaneous love. The kind that dances in Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
I am thankful for our fun love. The kind that laughs and jokes together.
I am thankful for our spiritual love. The kind that talks, encourages, and gently reproves.
I never, ever want to take my sweetheart for granted. Every now and then I just stop and think….Michael is God’s gift to me. How should I be treating God’s gift to me? How should I be loving him? How should I be taking care of him? How grateful should I be to God for giving me such a wonderful treasure of a gift?
Michael Thomas…I am so thankful for you. Thank you for truly being my best friend. Thank you for your sweet words, your listening ears, your encouraging talks. Thank you for constantly pointing and prodding me upward to Christ. Thank you for your example to me. Thank you for being the most incredible fiance in the world!! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!!!
