Today Benjamin and I celebrated seven years of marriage. He is a wonderful man, and the best mate God could have given me. He is my best friend.
I look at that wedding picture and think about how young we were, and how naive and untried. But we were so eager to embrace the future. We have had our triumphs and struggles, but I would not change anything. I love him more now than the day we married…so much more. As he told me today, “Seven years down, seventy to go.” Does he honestly think we will make it to 100+? Probably not, but we will grow older together for as many years as God gives us.
(If you are curious, last year I shared a bit of our story.)
