It is hard to put into words how grateful I am for this precious man.
How honored I am to partner with him in life and in the raising of our six children.
How blessed I am to walk beside him as his wife.
I absolutely adore him.
My life has been made richer because of him.
My joy magnified and multiplied over and over again because of him.
Eleven years ago today, after ten years of parenting solo as a single Mother, God saw fit to bless me with an incredible gift of a Husband and a beautiful Father for my baby girl. I finally had a family of my very own...
My Beautiful Husband,
You are the most incredible demonstration of the love of the Father that I have ever experienced.
Thank you for loving me and partnering with me in life. Thank you for never, ever giving up on me through the years of inner healing and through my process with the Lord. Thank you for being the only person in my entire life who has ever consistently stood beside me. The only person who could not be moved. The only person whom I could not push away. The only person who has ever loved me unconditionally. I honor you today......
Beautiful, genuine, incredible you.
I am rejoicing with you today and with our sweet babies.
How big is our God? How wonderful and magnificent is He who has blessed us six times over with the gift of a child. Unmerited grace.
How we longed and prayed for these children. Today my heart remembers our wedding day and our Pastor praying over us to be blessed with children during the ceremony. I remember when we lost three precious ones how our hearts where so broken and full of despair. And then because He is so faithful, how we experienced a supernatural joy through the years as He blessed us again and again with children.
He truly knows the desire of our hearts.
Three precious baby girls.....
And three delightful baby boys.
After all we have been through, walked through, persevered through the last decade, I am so incredibly grateful that God saw fit 13 years ago to allow our paths to cross.
(Thank you to the beautiful Suzy Thompson for the photography last April.)
I am still awestruck to this very day at how through your love for me and from the sweetest nickname in the world, a beautiful and very special ministry came forth. Thank you for calling me your Pearl so many years ago. Thank you for seeing in me what I could not see in myself. Thank you for supporting me and encouraging me and loving me through the oyster shell of my circumstances until I could fully walk in my calling and truly see myself as His pearl.....
The best is yet to come......
He says so in His word.
