10 years....

There are two ways people can looking at blessings in their lives.  The first is that they are miracles and proof of God's existence.  The second is that they are pure moments of coincidence, happenstance or just good luck.   There are many blessings in my life, that certainly if I struggled to believe in God, I might try to write them off as the latter....but you, Johnny.....you, I simply could not.

You are my 100% undeniable miracle.  If I had needed proof that God was real, you would certainly be that proof.  Why?  Because there is no way that in all the billions of people in the world that finding and falling in love with you could in any way be a coincidence or an act of good fortune.  No, there has to be a God, an author of love.  I am certain of this.  You are my miracle.

From the moment I first met you, from our very first conversation I felt like I had known you my entire life.   I think that is because from the time I was conceived God was whispering the dream of you into my heart.  When we met, my heart already knew you so well and when we were married 10 years ago on this day, my heart found it's home in yours.  10 years ago this day, I found my vocation and I found my true peace. 

Even after 10 years, I am still taken back by the incredible ways that you can finish my sentences, or how you can calm my fears, ease my stress and how you know just what to say to make everything okay.  So often, you take my breath away.  You make me laugh unexpectedly.  And I continue to fall more deeply in love with you with each passing day.

Thank-you for loving me the ways that you do.  For being patient with my failings, for loving me unconditionally and for constantly challenging me to be a better person.   Thank-you for being an instrument of God's light and love in my life and for continuing to point me to Him.  I know that I will spend eternity thanking Him for the extraordinary gift you are to me.

Thank-you for walking beside me the past 10 years as we've lived out our vows of "for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health" and for guiding me through the struggles and the blessings that have made our lives so abundantly full and overflowing.

I am so looking forward to the next 10 years and all that God has in store for us.  Happy Anniversary, Johnny.... I love you so incredibly much.

Here is a little video I made with a few pictures from the past 10 years with our song from our first wedding dance, "I want to spend my lifetime loving you" by Marc Anthony and Tina Arena.
