Snuggling with Ben the other night and I say, "I love you!" Ben- "I love u too!" Pause. Ben- "I thank you." Me- "why?" Ben- "because you stayed with me!" Me- "it is my honor to be with you!"
I can be myself when I am with you.
Your idea for romance is dim lights, soft music, and just the two of us.
You make me feel like I have never felt before.
I can tell you anything and you won't be shocked!
Your underlying faith is what keeps the flame of our love alive.
You and I together, we can make magic.
We're a perfect match.
Thinking of you, fills me with a wonderful feeling.
Your love gives me the feeling that the best is still ahead!
You never give up on me, and that's what keeps me going.
You are simply irresistible
I love you because you bring the best out of me!
You always say what I need to hear.
You have taught me the true meaning of love.
Love is what you mean to me and you Ben mean everything!
You are a theme to my dreams.
I have had a time of my life and I owe it all to you!
Happy Anniversary Ben!
Three years married to my man Ben! God brought him into my life over four years ago and I have been blessed and loved ever since! No one or no thing can come between me and Ben! God has done some interesting things this past year but through it all I can say that the love that Ben and I have for each other is something that no other person can experience! I cannot describe it, I just know that it is there! God spared our lives for a reason and if that reason was to love Him and each other more then so be it!"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance!" I Cor. 13:4-7...I think I have learned ALL of these this past year! I have learned to be patient not just with Ben but also on the Lord! I so want to demand my own way but who is the one who says, "My way is HIGHER then your way?" I cannot demand my way with Ben either...he can only control things so much for himself! I try not to get irritable with my man...it is hard when he is so handsome and he puckers his lips to get kisses! There is no wrong record in my heart against Ben...life it to short to hold grudges against those you love! I know the truth and it sets me free! The truth is, Jesus is the way and He is healing my man...so I am going to rejoice in that! LOVE NEVER GIVES UP! I love my Ben so much that there is know way that I will be giving up on him! I am hopeful in Ben's 100% healing and what the Lord is going to do in and through us! I have chosen to endure through every circumstance...the good and the bad! Does this mean that I don't have times of doubt, faithlessness, not want to forgive, be boastful in the wrong way and lack strength?? No way! I am human just like everyone else! I have my times too but it is what I choose to do in those times...wallow in it or move forward! Most times I move forward and the others I have to do a bit of catching up to get rid of those!
I BELIEVE and KNOW that God has a future and a hope for us now and outside of hospital walls! Ben and I will have a home, have babies and Lord willing Ben will go back to his Ranger buddies and work with them! Our future is not set by doctors, our desires are not determined by man but all of this is determined by Jesus! He knows our hearts desires and He will pave the way for us!
Ben, my love for you has not stopped growing! Your strength, integrity, hard work, faith, no giving up, and love for me inspires me to move forward and work harder! I will never give up on you! You will never be left alone! You have my whole heart and I know I have yours! I believe in you! We will make it through, it will be ok! We have Jesus and each other!! I will keep fighting for you and doing whatever I can to get you further then where you are now!
PLEASE PRAY FOR BEN'S SMILE TO COME BACK!!
HIS SMILE LIGHTS UP MY HEART AND THE ROOM!!
THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!
