1 year

It's so hard to believe it's been 1 year since I married the love of my life, my best friend, Stephen Deason. I wanted to post this on our anniversary, 7-3-10 but I didn't have time, because we were celebrating the day! Now I would like to take some time to reflect on the past year. WOW! A lot has happened in 1 year! It seems like it's been 4 or 5 years since we got married just because so much was packed into the past year! God has been so good to us. He brought us together,and that was a huge blessing. I always wanted to grow up and marry the love of my life,and to know that he was "the one" after meeting him. God blessed me in that way, because after Stephen and I starting dating, I just knew he was the one for me,and that I would marry him some day. He is such an amazing husband,and I am blessed beyond measure with him! We have been through so much together,and I wouldn't trade this past year for anything. It's been awesome to grow closer to the Lord,and to each other over the past year. God has done great things for us. He has provided in so many ways,and we are grateful. We have been able to experience so many things together from joy,and excitement to the worst possible grief we could have never imagined. Throughout the past year we have learned so much about sacrificial love for the Lord and for each other. God has used the situations He put us in to strengthen our faith in Him. He allowed us to be the proud parents of Addison Lynn for 9 months and 6 days..and we grew so much closer to each other and to the Lord during my pregnancy. We have been very close for a long time,but when something like pregnancy comes into the draws you closer to each other, because you rely on each other so much. Stephen has been such a huge help to me in the past year. He was such a good,strong support for me during my pregnancy with Addison,and he did whatever I needed him to questions asked. He has been so faithful to always put my needs first..and to treat me like a Queen. He has shown a great sacrificial love to me over and over again..and I can never thank him enough for all that he has done for our little family. His love and encouragement has been such a blessing,and has helped me get through some of the hardest times. He has led me spiritually,and strives to be a Godly example for me,and I am grateful for that. Stephen is the absolute love of my life..and I don't know what I would do without him. I love him so much,and thank God for him everyday. I'm looking forward to many,many more years together..and can't wait to see what God has for us in the future. It's been a year since we were married,and God has done so much for us in that year..and then some. Stephen, I love you so much,and can never thank the Lord enough for putting you in my life. You are such a blessing. Thanks for all that you do for me,and for loving me the way you do. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you. Love, Your wife

Here is a link to our wedding slide show. It brought back lots of good memories for me...(I think you will have to highlight it and copy it into the browser window. For some reason it's not working like a "link" where you can just click on it.)
