Happy Anniversary, Doll!


Christy,
I just wanted to post this to let the world know how amazing and special you are to me. Amazing because of the woman of God you are. You seek Him and love Him first and that blesses me. You are special because I have never known anyone like you. You have stuck with me and have weathered the storms by my side...I love you. You have given me 4 beautiful children that we are raising together to know and love the Lord. Your insight and support in family have helped me become a better dad and father to our kids. I pray the Lord grants us many more years together in ministry and marriage. I love you for coming to Ukraine with me and standing by my side as we venture these foreign waters.


Because its 10 years today, its only fitting to have the lyrics to the song I read to you on our engagement day! With all my love for years to come,

Micah

A Page Is Turned - Bebo Norman

A page is turned by the wind to a boy in curly grin
With a world to conquer at the age of ten
But as history unfolds and the storybook is told
He finds salvation but not at the hands of man

And the God of second chance
Picked him up and He let him dance
Through a world that is not kind
And all this time, preparing him, the one
To hold him up when he comes undone
Beneath the storm, beneath the sun
And now a man, here you stand
Your day has come

A page is turned in this world to reveal a little girl
With a heart that's bigger, as it is unfurled
By the language in her soul, that's teaching her to grow
With a careful cover of love that will not fail

And the God of second chance
Picked her up and He let her dance
Through a world that isn't kind
And all this time, preparing her the one
To hold her up when she comes undone
Beneath the storm, beneath the sun
And grown up tall, here you are
Your day has come

Beneath the air of autumn, she took him by his hand
And warm within the ardor, she took his heart instead
And high upon the mountain, he asked her for her hand
Just for her hand

A page is turned in this life, he's making her his wife
And there is no secret to the source of this much life
When the grace that falls like rain is washing them again
Just a chance to somehow rise above this land

Where the God of second chance
Will pick them up and he'll let them dance
Through a world that is not kind
And all this time, they're sharing with the one
That holds them up when they come undone
Beneath the storm, beneath the sun
And once again, here you stand
And once again, here you stand
Your day has come

Babe,
Thank you for the sweet post! I can remember so clearly that day when you read that song to me at "The Spot" and asked me to be your wife. And now here we are, 10 years later! What an adventure it has been!!! I pray the Lord gives us many, many more wonderful years together.
Happy Anniversary, Baby!
