Romantic. That word both describes myself and my husband. Sentimental. Another duel descriptor for us. Good sense of humor. Considerate. Amorous. Happy. Put these words together and you get fireworks of love. No matter what is going on in our world around us, we always end the day with love. Whether it's a simple "I love you", a goodnight kiss, or a hug that says "I'm glad you're mine" we always have that to hold on to. That's what makes everyday a good day. Having each other.

I am often reminded at how love itself is a miracle. Yes, I believe it is a miracle. Out of the billions of people in this world that two people can find each other and know that this is the one person you want to love and share everything with. That you are soul mates, born to love each other. Jared and I met in the middle of the ocean. We met on a cruise ship. So the odds were even smaller that we would find each other so far out at sea, away from the better part of the world. But we did. How do you explain that? That is not a mistake. That is not chance. That is fate....God had a hand in it. It's what I like to call "A God thing".

My parents gave me a manifesto that was written from God's perspective and talked about how he was preparing myself and the one I would marry for each other and when we were both ready he would bring us together. I believe this is so true. I had a lot of life to go through before I met Jared and eventually married him in order to appreciate him and to know exactly how to love him, the way God had intended for me to love. With all my heart. The words were written as if it were a personal letter from God written directly to me. I still have it tucked away somewhere, I will look for it and try to post the whole thing. It really is beautiful. Little did I know at age 16 when my parent's gave it to me how true and accurate it would be.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11
