Hes Had Me From Hello ... Happy Annivesary Baby

the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc.
the state, condition, or relationship of being married; wedlock: a happy marriage.


a relationship in which two people have pledged themselves to each other in the manner of a husband and wife, without legal sanction:

One word was really and truly how our story began , I think sometimes that this has been a dream and one day ill wake up from it, but with each passing day i come to realize more and more that its not a dream , That on that beautiful Saturday in June of 2001 I did marry my best friend , my soul mate , prince charming , you name it , Its hard to believe that we've been married for 8 years today but we have and tho I would have to say that these have been the best years of my life they haven't always been the easiest tho , But with the good and the bad its been a wonderful journey ,

This is the first year tho we've ever had to spend our anniversary apart :( and I do miss him like crazy

So even tho we cant be together today on our anniversary I just wanted to write a little blog up and share with everybody why I love this man so much and just what he means to me

Jason and I have always been so close but over the last year with everything that's gone on our relationship has grown so much and gotten so much stronger . And I accredit that to God , Jason and I both read the book Fireproof last year and it helped to start a wildfire of change in our relationship and our marriage and its been so wonderful !

1 Corinthians 13 - 4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Is that verse just not a awesome one ? , Because in a marriage Love has to be patient and you have to be kind to each other I honestly believe that its not just about it being Just a man and woman that there has to be that third presence in a marriage the presence of God has got to be there to make it work , Now it hasn't always been the strongest in our marriage and like anybody we've stumbled along the way and down the path , But in the last year , Ive learned so much about Jason and my Self and just how strong we really are , doing the bible study that I've been doing this year its helped to open my eyes up alot also ,

Proverbs 3-5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own.Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction.It's the child he loves that God corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.

Ive learned that there are so many message in the word of God that can help in making a love story truly unbelievable , not to mention the guidance and wisdom that can be gotten and gained from just studying the word ,We are all given the chance to make our own destiny's and how we choose to do them is all on us ,But in becoming the best person that we can be you have to be open minded to changes , I thank you Jason for putting up with me over the years , I know that it hasn't been easy but you've always loved me and tho I know that our love has grown so much over the years as has your patience and understanding towards me , We've come so far Jason from the 2 people that meet back in 1999 and that moved in with each other on that spark of love that we hoped never died , Well baby it for sure hasn't died its become a wildfire of emotions , love ,trust , happiness , understand and so much more that cant even begin to be put into words and I fall in love more and more with you each and every day !

One word, that's all you said Something in your voice called me, turned my head Your smile, just captured me You were in my future as far as I could see And I dont know how it happens, but it happens still You asked me if I love you, if I always will Well you had me from hello I felt love start to grow The moment I looked into your eyes you won me It was over from the start you completely stole my heart And now you won't let go I never even had a chance you know You had me from hello Inside I built a wall So high around my heart, I thought I'd never fall One touch, you brought it down The bricks of my defenses scattered on the ground And I swore to me I wasn't going to love again The last time was the last time I'd let someone in But you had me from hello I felt love start to grow The moment I looked into your eyes you won me It was over from the start you completely stole my heart And now you wont let go I never even had a chance you know You had me from hello That's all you said Something in your voice calls me, turns my head You had me from hello You had me from hello Girl, I've loved you from hello

That has been the one song that's always said alot about us , You had me from Hello Jason theres no doubt about that , We came together and over come the many things and people saying that we would never make it , But we have baby and I am so grateful for you and love you so very very much ! You know theres probley 100 songs or better that I have heard that make me think of you but this one is our song !

Marriage Joins Two People in the Circle of its Love
Edmund O'Neill
Marriage is a commitment to life,the best that two people can find and bring out in each other.It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other relationship can equal.It is a physical and an emotional joining that is promised for a lifetime.Within the circle of its love,marriage encompasses all of life's most important relationships.A wife and a husband are each other's best friend,confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic.And there may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing,and the love of the other may resemble the tender caring of a parent or child.Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher,commitment is stronger, even anger is felt more strongly,and passes away more quickly.Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life,new experiences, new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life.
When two people pledge their love and care for each other in marriage,they create a spirit unique unto themselves which binds them closer than any spoken or written words.Marriage is a promise, a potential made in the hearts of two people who love each other and takes a lifetime to fulfill.

We sure did go through alot to get that piece of paper but with out a shadow of doubt it was worth ever battle and struggle that we went through it made us so much closer and look at where we are now , I love you Jason with all of my heart and soul, and I praise God everyday that he brought some one into my life that has made me hole some one with the understanding and patience to love me through my best but to be there and shine that light of hope and strength through my worst times also being there and reminding me not to lose my faith and keep my chin up that God will guide us and help us through it all , I dont tell you enough just how much I love you , And i look forward to many many more years of love and happiness and continued growth between us ! Happy Anniversary Baby See Ya Soon and I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL !

Ecclesiastes 4:12 (New International Version)
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

UGHH I hit post without finishing.
I know its hard to be apart today of all days, but look at the bright side, its one year. And years from now all that will matter is that you celebrated it in your own way.
