"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

he walked in


Twelve years ago today, he walked into my life, (actually "typed" into my life since we met online) and forever changed it. He has since become one of my greatest blessings. Ever.

On that late night in November, never did I expect the stranger I had just met to not only become my husband and prove to me that soul mates really do exist, but not in my wildest dreams did I ever think that God would use him so powerfully to bring me back to my Savior.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that we would not only add one, nor two, but three precious children to our newly blended family.

Never did I think I would become the happiest woman in the world by saying "I do" to this stranger.

Never did I think he could wipe my tears away and make me laugh hysterically in the midst of a pain and sadness.

Never did I think I would find myself standing in awe of him as I watch him fulfill his role as an amazing father, playing with our kids and leading them by example.

Never have I felt what love truly is, until I felt it through the eyes of this stranger.

Am I ever glad that I really believe in never saying never!

Happy 12 years together, baby.

I love you with all of my being.

Happy Anniversary !
That's pretty cool that you guys found each other online. What are the chances of that happening? I think god had big plans for you two before you even knew about each other existed.
