Marriage Letters on Monday: Love Story

Me and Audrey are joining in on a thing some bloggers are doing called Marriage Letter Mondays.  This is in a hopes to shed transparency on marriages and encourage others in their own marital experiences.


Sometimes I'm afraid our story doesn't look very much like a traditional love story and I think I'm okay with that.  It has had many twist and turns through out the 13 years we have been together.  But honestly, It has been so much better than I could have hoped for.  I had expectations about marriage.  That I would marry one woman and be with her forever.  That I would have a family.  That we would serve God together.  That we would have fun.  All of these have happened.  Though what I so love about our story is the things I didn't expect.  That I would have a wife who gets my sense of humor and makes me laugh all the time.  That I worry about finances and you call me out on it.  That we would have dance parties with two amazing little girls.  That we would explore the country together.  That we wage wars over the temperature in the house.  That life would be so busy that we struggle to find time for dreaming, but when we do we seem to be able to make dreams realities.  That you say things and I still struggle to find the right response.  That you would knit before you were thirty.  That missions would be our life.  That we are not rich, but we are amazing survivors together. That someone could know me so well and stll love me so much.  That we hold hands.

To be honest, I can't wait to see where our life together goes.  Being married to you is amazing, even when it's difficult.  It makes me a better man and person.  You help me see more in life that I know is even there.  As we were hiking last Saturday and stopped to see the amazing view over the valley, I was reminded that the view is always better with you beside me.  In fact, I could not imagine what it looks like without you.

Love you,
