Wedded bliss

8 years ago today I stood at an altar and exchanged vows with the woman of my dreams. Today we get to celebrate 8 years of marriage together. When we stood at the altar and said "I do" at Beulah Baptist Church in Dothan, AL I am positive that Tracy had no idea what she was getting into. All I knew was that I was the most blessed guy in the world. As today is a celebration day, I spent a bit of time reflecting on the past 8 years and I have come to the conclusion that I would be a wreck if it was not for my godly wife. She has been my encourager and helpmate on occasions when I deserved neither. She has been my critic and has provided accountability when I did not want, but certainly needed, both. She continues to amaze me with her love for the Lord, her passion for being a Mommy and her incredible love for me. I was the most blessed guy in the world 8 years ago today and I am even more blessed today than I was then.

Tracy, I love you and I am so thankful for 8 years with you and I cannot wait for another 50 or 60 more.
