And what a wonderful, beautiful, and fulfilling five years it has been!
Five years being your wife has been an absolute blessing, and I pray we'll have many more years to come.
We have grown together these five years, and you have helped me in becoming a better, more independent person. I couldn't ask for a better husband. You've shown me what real love is, I had no idea until I met you. Love is dedication, commitment, and patience. Love is putting others before yourself, and I see you do this every single day for me and your two sons.
I pray I continue to improve upon myself, to be a good and worthy wife of your love. You say I already am, I wish to do more! To be more.
Proverbs 12:4 'A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.'
May I be a crown to you.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.'
Pray I be a virtuous woman for you.
Ephesians 5:22-6:9 'Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.'
I wholly and willingly submit myself to you, and in return ask for your dedication and love.
Marriage is a commitment, a promise before God. To forsake all others. What an honor that you asked me to be your other half.
Here is to many more years Mewrei!
I'm looking forward to our adventures together, and I cannot express how thankful I am that you are here to join me in tackling what life throws at us. Just you and I. A team! Thank the Lord for bringing you into my life, (or me into yours haha). Thank the Lord for our two handsome boys. For faith, family, fellowship, and friends.
I love you sweetheart <3
