My husband is an amazing man. He is a Godly man who always keeps me laughing, encourages, me, watches out for me and is always on my side.
I say all of that to say, sometimes he drives me crazy.
Sometimes I drive him crazy.
Sometimes we even argue. (gasp)
One time a girl at church told me that she couldn’t even picture me and Luke arguing. That one made me laugh out loud. A lot.
One night, a couple of weeks ago I was very irritated with him. Looking back I don’t even remember why or what happened but you can rest assured I was probably being dramatic about something.
Who, me? Yes I can be a little dramatic and I will be the first to admit it.
It was probably because he wouldn’t do a mock American Idol audition for me – the nerve of some people.
Actually it might have been the night we split the hot fudge sundae. That my friends, was a bad night. I claimed the side that I *thought* had the most hot fudge only to realize halfway through that his side had more hot fudge. It was bad.
Anyways, so we were in an argument – actually I’m going to change that, we probably weren’t in any sort of argument, I was probably irritated with him and he was oblivious to the fact that I was even upset.
I don't even remember why, but at that time I started thinking about the vows that we said on our wedding day and I couldn't even remember them.
So I emailed our Pastor and asked him to please email me our wedding vows that we said on our wedding.
I wonder if that as the most random email he has ever received?
As I read over our vows I realized how important they are. And that they weren't just words that we said one day only to forget the next, but they were carefully chosen by Luke and I, and were chosen as the foundation of our marriage. Words that we chose to begin our life with, words that we want to continue to live until the day we die.
So I decided that I wanted to recognize these words for the importance that they hold in our marriage. I typed them out and framed them along with our wedding invitation to place in our house. I want these words to be kept public to remind us and those who eneter our home, of the vow we made.
I take you to be my spouse, my partner in life, and my one true love.
I will cherish our union, and love you more each day than I did the day before.
I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together.
I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live. Cherish this ring as a symbol of this vow before God today. I hope you have a great weekend!!!
