When I was 17, I fell in love for the first and only time. The characteristic that I found most appealing in this young man, was his steadiness. He was unwavering in his convictions, his calling, and his commitments. I’m so very thankful that when we encounter rocky paths, billowing waves, or dips in the rollercoaster of life, my partner doesn’t blink. He has supported me though this autoimmune nightmare I’ve been living in for the past few years. When we said “for better or worse”, I knew he meant it. And he proves it to me daily. I feel beyond grateful that Jesus loved me so much, he provided me with the best husband in the world.
