we're now on our 3rd year as a married couple. though i know its just a simple ceremony, people who witnessed remembered it for sure. and so we do! days right after the wedding were pretty challenging as i recall them. the first time my husband would leave me as his wife already for the United States. he needed to go back home because this is where he lives. so i needed to stay until my paperworks are done. and these were the days i said "boy i wish i can fly". lol.
so my papers were approved and i eventually moved in here in the US to be with him. things are pretty tough, rough but blissful i guess! we have our own "ups" and "downs". can i just choose the "ups",Lord?
we certainly experienced the cultural differences while adjusting to being married. from the food we eat, to how we're going to run the house. but i think that's like how frappe' is made. it wouldn't be so yummy if it was only made with pure coffee but it has sugar, some milk and vanilla in it. single life is already challenging so married is more. we can't get through this without God! He was there in the beginning of our love story until now and until He called us. when we gave our life to love each other He was there as a witness that no matter what happens we will always uphold, support, and cherish each other. without Him we wont have the strength to continue and so for this 4th year approaching i only pray that His unconditional love will always abound in me and my husband's life.
I love you
not only for who you are,
but for all we've been through together.
We've shared a lot of good times
and some hard times too.
But no matter what has come our way,
we've always known that with God
and each other, we could make it through.
So here we are,
with a love that's stronger
and a faith that's deeper
than the day we said "I do."
I'm thankful for that,
and even more thankful for you --- the one I will always love.
