Five posts for 5 5

This day 5 years ago...

Our wedding day.

I was up early with anticipation. Plus, I had to get a shower and head over to the ceremony site and set up all the flowers, then go to the salon and get my hair done. It was a whirlwind of a day.

I remember being sooooooo excited this day 5 years ago...yet, oddly calm. I knew that marrying Jeremiah was exactly what I wanted, what the Lord had planned for me. No cold feet here. I knew he was the one.

Today, May 23, 2008...five years later...I still know Jeremiah is the one.

No, I don't love him the same as I did when I pledged my life and love to him in front of all my friends and family. I didn't know then what I know now...

I didn't know that I would love him for all the dedication and hard work he showed throughout seminary. I didn't know that I would love him for his ability to always make me feel like top priority no matter what else is going on in life. I didn't know then that I would love him for the way he melts with Ella or the way he lights up with Ezra. I love him for the faithfulness he has showed to the Lord and ministry. I love him for his genuine love and passion for students. I love him for his contentment at the simple things of life and his teachable spirit. I love him for his "big-plans and end-product" outlook on life. I didn't know that I would love him for the maturity he has grown into and the silly goof-ball-ness he will never outgrow.

I love him MORE today than 5 years ago. Because he is MORE today.

Oh yea, I also didn't know that I would love him for his willingness to always be the one to put Ezra's paci in - in the middle of the night, and watch all my favorite HGTV and Food Network shows with me.

Ok, its official. No one else has a wife like Jenn. Sorry guys, its just not possible. The world simply could not hold anyone else like her. Wow, I am the most blessed man in history. I love you Jenn! I can't wait for tonight. (But not in the way your thinking, I desperately want to make out with you!)
