It's been 4 years

Four years ago right now, I was probably up and showered, getting ready for one of the biggest days of my life - my wedding day. We were married in the early afternoon on August 30th and enjoyed a lovely ceremony and reception before we honeymooned in the Western Caribbean.

It's true what people say about the wedding - though the ceremony is well and good, the party is fun, and the presents are great; it's the "ever after" part that is the most important. So true! Patrick and I have been through so much these last 4 years that would challenge any marriage (job changes, moving, having children, moving again...) and I know I love him more now that I did on that sunny August day back in 2003.

"Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised."

Song of Solomon 8:6-7
