25

Twenty five years ago today I married my best friend.
Neither one of us had any idea that 25 years later our family would look like this.
We love it!

I thank God all the time for His goodness and the ways He has blessed me with such an awesome family. I am blessed in so many ways.

But the biggest blessing in my life, outside of my salvation in Jesus, is my girlfriend.

She has taught me more about Jesus than anyone in my life.

I've seen her love on people who most people wouldn't spend time with. I've seen her give grace to people who stepped on it. She kept giving grace to them and never stopped. I've never seen her judge anyone. She trusts until someone proves that they can't be trusted and then she still wants to trust, to believe they can be trusted.

I've seen how she loves on our kids and prays for them and raises them to love Jesus.

I also know who I was and who I am without my girlfriend and it isn't very attractive. What good comes out of me is because of Jesus and this incredible woman.
Side note: I know I'm biased but she is the best looking girl I've ever seen! Ever.

I'm super thankful, especially today, that this incredibly beautiful, amazingly talented and Godly woman chose to spend her life with me.

Here's to 25 more amazing years with my best friend!
