…. there was a young girl who felt unlovable.
… She had turned her back on her faith and made very poor choices.
… She found herself pregnant and alone.
… She thought she was nothing but damaged goods.
… She found when one hits rock bottom, the only way to look is up. That is when she found Jesus again. She once again had a glimmer of hope.
… She, alone and scared, decided to try to trust in a God she couldn’t see but could feel.
… She felt things keep slipping away and falling apart.
… She knew God cared but somehow felt that she could never again be loved by another.
… She experienced the true grace of Jesus and slowly began to trust Him more.
… She decided to allow herself to put her whole heart and hope into Jesus.
… She didn’t understand His plan.
But then …
… She met a man.
… He taught her how to love.
… He taught her how to trust.
…. He taught her that life is worth living.
… He taught her that she could trust a man to be the father to her son.
… He taught her that she was worth taking a chance on.
… He married her.
… He taught her to hold on and have faith even when things felt like they were spiraling.
… He walked beside her through health scares.
… He walked beside her through the births of children.
…. He listened to her cry and took the blows when she was angry.
… He prayed and listened when she said she felt their family wasn’t complete.
… He then took the lead in adopting their beautiful daughter.
… He showed her what a true life companion was.
… He continues to show her daily how to love full on and to live full out.
… He is going to stand beside her this coming Sunday as the dedicate their sixth child to the Lord, as they celebrate their anniversary.
… He is her missing piece.
… He is her heartbeat.
… He is her one true love.
I have a love story like no other. I have a God who showed me ultimate love and forgiveness. I have a husband that has loved me when I couldn’t even love myself. I am forever grateful that God brought Andy into my life.
Happy anniversary, my love and puzzle piece.
