Love Never Fails

I remember walking down the boardwalk holding my daddy's arm and knowing my world was about to change. I've never felt so many emotions running through me at once. But, as a crested the top of the steps, and I saw you waiting in the sand, the only thing I felt was love. And, it filled my heart.

During the ceremony, a passage from 1 Corinthians 13 was read. It says, "4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails."

That's the love we share. I couldn't ask for more! You are everything I ever imagined in a husband and everything I never knew I wanted or needed. I'm blessed beyond measure and I thank God for you every day! I look forward to growing old with you. The best is yet to come!
Happy Anniversary, Matt!
