…is just the beginning.
There's no doubt that our love has revolutionized my life. Before we met, I was a person who thought too highly of myself and not enough of others. I was more concerned about building my kingdom rather than His Kingdom. But I did have a decent sense of humor, and I can only imagine that it was the only means I possibly had of reeling you in.
Over these last 8 years, you and God have been slowly, gradually molding me into the man I still hope one day to become. You showed me how to love others, especially those who are different or seemingly unlovable. Your heart for building God's Kingdom through missions won over my heart as well. Your steadfast spirit always nudges me to worry less and trust more.
And now we find ourselves parenting two beautiful and trying children with a third about to join in the chaos that has become our everyday lives… and I realize we are really just getting started on this lifelong journey. There are still some steep climbs ahead, but also some beautiful valleys and hopefully a rest stop or two. But wherever our path takes us, I know our story will be even more incredible, and the character God builds in us even more beautiful.
All my love is forever yours,J
