Since we post the day after my wedding anniversary, I would like everyone to make a project based on one of the scriptures read at my wedding - "I Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient; Love is kind. Love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on it's own way; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." Your card doesn't need to be based on spousal love and as such, I would love to hear a story of one of your loves.
Well, first of all - Happy Anniversary to April! And guess what - my anniversary is coming up too! Yes, Russ and I will celebrate 14 years of marriage on Tuesday, August 12th.
Russ and I met online in an AOL chat room believe it or not. Neither of us were looking for someone - just nosing around since AOL was all the rage then. We both found ourselves in this room with all these preteens acting like preteens do. I eventually posted "Is there anyone here over 30" and Russ was the only one who answered. We instantly clicked. I don't know how else to describe it - it was just meant to be from the very beginning. I can't say we ever really "dated" since we lived 250 miles away from each other. The funny thing is that when he "officially" proposed we already were well into our wedding plans. LOL!! He said "I guess I should officially ask you"....LOL!! It wasn't love at first sight because we knew even before we met face to face that we were meant to be. I would never recommend anyone do that - but it worked for us. It was certainly a "God thing". And 14 years later - well, I still love him with all my heart. He is so much more than I deserve. He is truly a saint!!! I'm so blessed to be married to such a Godly man.
My card is playing double duty today - it's not only for the COF August challenge but also for my Kitty Bee Design Team Spotlight....the image is "Best Friends Bun" from Kitty Bee Designs. Cute huh? And while it's not really an anniversary card - the bunnies remind me of Russ and I - joined at the hip...we are always together unless we are working. And the "Happiness" certainly describes my life with him - I couldn't be more blessed!!!
