six and counting…
Tomorrow, will be our 6th wedding anniversary! I cannot believe we’ve been married 6 years already. I also cannot believe it’s only been 6 years with her, it’s hard to imagine or remember life without her.
Our relationship was birthed in sin. Its only attribute was sin. I remember thinking, and believing, for a long time, that there was just no way Amanda and I could be together because of how messed up and sinful our past was. At times it’s still hard to believe. As I think about it now all I can think of is how amazing Gods grace is. He has been so very merciful to us, and has blessed us with a wonderful marriage, and now 4 beautiful kids. It doesn’t make sense to me at all. But I guess grace doesn’t make much sense, that’s the wonder of the gospel.
So, in honor of our 6 years together, here are 6 things I love about Amanda (in no particular order):
1: She’s more amazed and thankful for Gods grace then I am. I love her broken joy when we talk about how God has blessed us. She is a delight to my soul.
2: She loves to serve. She is always serving somebody. With 4 kids there is much demanded of you. When they’re all 5 and under there’s more demanded. When your homeschooling there’s more. When your husband is as sinful and selfish as me there’s way more demanded. And yet she longs to be a blessing to more people! She has so much reward awaiting her.
3: She’s an awesome cook!
4: She makes our home, OUR HOME. She fills it with joy. I love coming home. But I really love coming home to her. When I came home tonight, I saw her and was immediately thankful for her in my life.
5: I get to brag about her to others. When I’m out with guys I get excited when our wives come up in convo. I get to boast in the grace of God in her life, always. What a joy that is!
6: She’s smokin’ hot! It’s like I hit the lottery with this gal. She’s off the hook.
Godly, humble, servent, cook, growing in grace, and beautiful!
God, thank you for hooking a brother up.
