That is how many years I have been married today. I cannot believe my parents allowed me to get married at age 19, but they did. And the Lord had some growin' in store for me.
My "8" is a rock wall because that is what God provided for me in my husband. For every wacky idea I have, he has a thoughtful and reasonable alternative. When I am emotional, he is steady. If I have a problem, he has a solution. That man puts up with a lot. He is my earthly rock.
What I am most thankful for in my marriage is this: God has elected to save us both. We don't know why. We just know that He is good. And we know that we will spend eternity together. Odds are, we won't even notice each other because we will be so busy praising God; however, it is a small earthly comfort to know that Beau will be in heaven. It is also quite the gift to know that my husband is not living to glorify himself (no matter what I may say in an argument). He seeks to serve the Lord, and this wife is quite thankful for that fact. His authority is Scripture, and there is something so peaceful about knowing that I follow a man who follows the Lord.
There are lots of other cool things about him. But these are what I am most thankful for. Happy Anniversary, Beau Thomas.
