Nine years



Six houses
Eight moves
Two countries
Two children
Three(soon to be four) Cars 
One dog (we miss yo Cai, hope your enjoying grandmas house).

  We have had, Plenty of rainy days, Sunshine abounding, Prayers said, Movies watched, Books read, Quilts made, Knits knitted, Shoes found, And inumerable Cups of tea. Nine years with you my Jason, have been exciting hectic and crazy, but also peaceful and calm.
 You, my love have let our family with wisdom, kindness, tenderness, patience, a love and a selflessnes that reflects the love of our Heavenly Father who you so faithfully serve. 
Not for one moment have I regretted saying "I Do." 
We were made for each other and I am always so proud to say that you are "my husband."
I love you 

Ephesians 5:21-33
(The message)


21 Out of respect for Christ, be courteously reverent to one another.
22-24 Wives, understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. The husband provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to his church, not by domineering but by cherishing. So just as the church submits to Christ as he exercises such leadership, wives should likewise submit to their husbands.
25-28 Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.
29-33 No one abuses his own body, does he? No, he feeds and pampers it. That’s how Christ treats us, the church, since we are part of his body. And this is why a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become “one flesh.” This is a huge mystery, and I don’t pretend to understand it all. What is clearest to me is the way Christ treats the church. And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband.
