The Value of Commitment

11 years ago today I committed myself in marriage, to my husband.
What I remember most from that day is what I prayed.
I prayed our marriage would be Blessed by God, and Blessed it was that day and still is today.
God blessed me with my sweet husband Dick.
He loves me without reservation and with hope, joy, exuberance and passion every day of our lives. I have never questioned it.never.
This man as taught me so many things over the years.
He's taught me to be a kinder person, a gentler soul.
He's taught me that true love has no conditions.
He has led by example, and loved DEEPLY!!

He lives the Bible out loud. No hiding it under a bush or anything else for that matter.
He shows me kindness after kindness and makes me smile every day.
Just when I think I couldn't love him more ~~ I do.

I'd like to share a small portion of our wedding ceremony with you:
"In marriage will be revealed to you the truth of all life and the hope of the world -- that in giving love unselfishly, we are living as Christ would have us live, regaining our rightful place as caretakers of love and hope in the world. May your marriage be the foundation from which you go forth to honor and help others."
Babe, I love you and thank you for 11 wonderful years, and I look forward with anticipation and love to all God has in store for us. Love you always ~~ you are my lobster ~~ Petrii
Have a Beautiful day,
