 {Eight years}

We had no idea What our lives together would look like The tools we would need to make it through A puzzle with out a picture or guide To piece it together Guesses and missteps Loss Hurt Shattered Hope Peace Love Fear Doubt Attacks Freedom Beauty Truth Love Life Death Choices And through it all Him His beauty His puzzle His canvas Changing us Using us Shaping us All for Him I love you because you are still with me I love you because you care I love your laugh I love your strength I love that you encourage me to be whole and complete You are my steady You are my calm You are my reality You are my quiet You are the love that is being used to help me bloom God has made you a wonderful and complete man with out me God has created me for purposes that only He can fulfill in me We don’t complete each other – He completes us, but I am so glad that we get the privilege of coming along side and encouraging one another through the process. Happy eighth anniversary.

Beautiful! Happy Anniversary. I am not even sure how I got to your blog, but so glad that I did. Will be back often.

Stop by my blog for a visit. Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.

I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
