project 52.20


On the day you say, "I do", you really have no clue what you're getting in to.  You think you've got your relationship figured out.  You think you know what you need to know.  You think your days are all going to be easy and happy from there on out.  

But, thankfully, God designed marriage as a covenant.  Between not only husband and wife.  But also with God.  So that, when you realize that you don't really have your relationship figured out, and you definitely don't know all you need to and your days aren't always happy, it's okay.  Because you're committed.  You not only said I do, but you said for better or for worse.  You're in it for the long-haul.  

Your daddy and I celebrated four years of marriage this week.  And I am here to tell you, marriage is tough.  And frustrating.  And a constant challenge.  But, it's also beautiful and rewarding.  It's amazing to know that someone has promised to love you forever.  And that you have committed the same to that person. 

And, I will tell you, this fourth year has been incredible.  The two of you have made our marriage even sweeter than before.  We have become a team.  Working hard to care for and love both of you well.  I have seen your daddy become a daddy.  I've watched his excitement as you arrived in this world.  I've watched him love you. I've watched his face light up when he sees you.  And it has been amazing.  

So, although marriage is difficult, I want both of you to know that we are committed.  To making our marriage, the foundation of our family, great.  We are in it for the long-haul.  And we are excited about it.  Thank you, for making life even sweeter for us.
