Happy Anniversary to my wonderful Husband!

Three years ago today Jeff & I had our first date.  Shortly after that I knew that he was meant to be in my life.  Forever.

A year ago today I was lucky enough to get to marry my honey! I feel both like time is flying by so fast and like our wedding was a lifetime ago.

The poem that I would have had as a reading at our wedding (not in the Bible so we couldn't) was Love by Roy Croft.  Sweety baby honey darlin', this is for you...
I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;
I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.

Jeff, I love you!
