Seems like yesterday, but also like forever ago.
TEN years ago today...I married my love.
During our ceremony, and as we walked out of the church as a married couple,
we worshipped to the song,
"Blessed Be Your Name" by Matt Redman.
The main words of the song say
"You give and take away...Lord BLESSED be Your name!"
We had no idea how prophetic that song would be,
and how we would so need to hold onto the truth of it, throughout our journey of marriage.
And to learn a dependence on the Lord like I never knew I needed.
THAT is beautiful.
So so thankful for a man who points me to Jesus.
Just like the young, wrinkle-free, 20-year old face you see here has changed a lot...
my heart has too.
My heart knows more than ever, that after 10 years of marriage,
God chose an amazing man for me to do life with.
I had NO idea what all we would go through,
but I wouldn't have wanted to do it with anyone else by my side.
Driving away with him that night, as his new bride...
best drive of my life.
I would do it all over again.
ALL of it.
Because I see God's love in our marriage...
in the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful.
God is good.
And the next 10 are gonna be good too. :)
I love you, Parker.
Happy 10 years baby.
