Celebrating Love

Just click this button if you want to hear the music.

(Music playing is a song played in our wedding "For Always" by Cece Winans.)

 We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary yesterday! God's grace and abundant blessings are overflowing. As I looked back over the years of our marriage, He never fails.

No, our Carribean trip didn't come together this year, but that's ok. It will not make me whine and kick :) that's not the most important thing right now, although I would really love to get away with just me and hubby. Somehow in the craziness of life's schedule these days we couldn't find the right timing. We are still planning to go, maybe on our 20th who knows?

It's been a great day! With all of those unending sweet little nothings, roses and fine dining at  Sydneys, so peaceful and relaxing, a walk along the lake completed my day.  This time we just took time to hold hands and talk about us. Not our teenager's choices, or foster children, or some other people's concern, or about what flowers i will plant or why our neighbor's lawn have so many weeds, or did you lock the door or forgot to close the garage door, or what will be our schedule for tomorrow... no, not that kind of conversation. But a conversation that gives us an opportunity to looked back and see how God brought us this far, we've grown a lot in our relationship to each other. There are rough edges and bumpy roads but it's amazing how we dealt with it positively with God's hand upon our lives. 
A kind of conversation that seems harder and harder to find time for in the midst of life. A conversation to remember, treasure and hold on to. For another day will surely come where these conversations will be the sweetest of all our memories. It is priceless and precious, so beautiful. 
I am looking forward for these kind of conversation again. In the balcony of caribbean cruise maybe? or from the overlooking city of Tuscany, lol. I love hubby more than ever! he's the best thing that ever happened to me. I love him each day! 

Jesse Fortz, you're still the one! (((huggies))) . 

These photos are our very first wedding anniversary in HongKong.

Nineteen years later...

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. Our wedding was many years ago but celebration continues to this day."

Happy 19th!
