HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME AND JOHN!


Today is my 4th anniversary with my wonderful honey John!! I praise God for the amazing husband He has given me, and the awesome marriage that we’ve been blessed with. The past four years have been incredible as we have navigated through some of life’s most difficult moments and also the most wonderful moments. He is my best friend and my true love! It’s been an adventure and I wouldn’t ever want anyone else by my side through it all --- give me Jesus & John and I’m good for life! Happy Anniversary John … you are the love of my life!!

Engraved in our wedding bands is: 7-30-05 Ephesians 5:22-31


Written out the verse reads, “Wives, submit to your husband as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church – for we are members of his body. ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’”
