7 years ago I married the love of my life, my confidant, and my best friend.  I stood in the mist of a crowd  alone and took my wedding vows; my ultimate promises to my husband and God.  Today, I read the same vows to Tim but with a different twist:

7 years ago, I pledged my loyalty to you, Tim, as your wedded wife, to live together after God’s ordinance, in the holy estate of matrimony. I promised to love you, comfort you, honor and keep you, in sickness and in health. I further promised that, forsaking all others, I would keep myself only unto you, so long as we both shall live. During these 7 years, I have been faithful to that pledge. Now, again, at the beginning of the 7 year of our life together, in the presence of God, in the presence of our family, and in the presence of friends who have gathered for this happy occasion, I renew these vows, pledging myself to continue my devotion to you as long as we both shall live.

He is my hero, my life, and my lover….my commitment to him grows stronger everyday along with the love I have for him.  We built our marriage on a strong foundation of Christ; I know that my marriage will not waiver.  I did not build it on sand but in cement.  Happy Anniversary Tim, I Love You!
