Today Matt and I celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. It seems so surreal – has ten years really gone by already? Often it still feels as though we are silly teenagers playing house instead of 30-something married people. I am so proud to be married to Matt Swisher. He’s thoughtful, kind, loving, silly, intelligent, and pretty darn sexy too! How I ever convinced him to marry me remains a mystery.
Ten years ago today, we stood in front of our family and friends and vowed to comfort each other, honor and keep each other, in sickness and in health, in wealth and poverty, and to be faithful to each other as long as we both shall live. The past decade has seen sickness for sure, and even a little poverty at times, but we continue to comfort each other and stay faithful to each other every day.
In a world where marriages are quickly tossed aside and people always seem to be seeking the greener grass on the other side, I must say it has never been difficult to note the lush, verdant nature of the grass on which I currently stand. Matt’s caring spirit and loving partnership help to make that grass root deeper and sprout thicker and greener every day. I’m so thankful for him and the lawn we tend together.
God has so clearly placed us together for this life. I can never be thankful enough for that blessing. Matt is my best friend and the love of my life. I can’t wait to see what lies in store for us.https://vimeo.com/46337579
I love you Matt!
