It is strange to think that in five days (Oct. 5) we will be a couple for 15 years. A lot has happened in that time from some bad things to loads of good. I like the people we have grown into together. It has been a wonderful experience aging with him, learning with him, and exploring life together. He has been my constant friend, companion, lover, and helpful guide to understanding God better. He is a great father and husband. We dream together, work together on goals, and try to better understand God’s Word together.
Rob has always accepted me as I was/am, corrected me kindly when I’ve been wrong, told me how I might be able to improve, shown me love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (and I have seen him do the same to others). He is living out the fruits of the spirit. I am amazed that this man is mine for life. I am amazed that I have known him almost half of my life as it is already. He is so sweet and I find myself staring at him when he is not looking as well as when he’s looking (I check him out a lot). He has overcome sin, has overcome temptations, and it is all because he knows that Christ has overcome the world to save him. He inspires me on a regular basis. May he continue to strive towards righteousness. I feel as if I have loved him for 5,000 years instead of 15, because I know my love for him will not grow dim.
