Happy Anniversary Joel

Four years ago today, I married my best friend!




I Corinthians 13:8-13

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.



I remember in middle school while at d-now we all prayed for our husbands. Back then I didn't know who he was or where he was, but I still prayed that someday he would find me. Again, when I was in high school we did a Bible study on the most important things in a husband. We started off the lesson by drawing a stick figure on the board and we all chose things that we wanted in a guy (ie: dark hair, tall, muscular, blue eyes, etc), but in the end the only thing that matters is that he loves God. That he puts God first in his life.



Well, in December of 2003, I met Joel!



I couldn't imagine life without him. He is truly the best husband I could have prayed for.



He is very patience with me, very kind, and most importantly he loves God with all of his heart.



Joel,

Thank you for always being there for me and loving me no matter what. I know life hasn't been easy lately, but it is about to get better! I am so proud of you! I can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the next 50+ years! I LOVE YOU!

Why my husband is the best!

As most of you know Joel and I live in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment. When I say tiny I mean it, it's only 540 sq ft. We are trying to save money in order to pay off our student loans. (That's a different story, back to the reason I am writing this). We decided this year that there was not enough room to put our Christmas tree up; hence, the reason for Christmas Corner. I have really been wanting to put it up because I missed it. However, I haven't complained to Joel, my mom maybe, but not Joel. So today when I walked in from work my tree was up!! The furniture was stacked in the corner in order for us to have room,, but I don't care!

This what I saw when I walked in


And this is what was on the couch


The note said 'Have fun decorating the rest! I love you!!'

I know most of you probably don't care about this, but for me it was very special! Action must be my husbands love language because he loves doing things for me.

And now you know why my husband is the best!!!
