As of June 8, 2009, John and I have been very happily married for 7 years! It's amazing how time flies! But it's even more amazing how love can grow every day.
For those of you not married yet, wait until you find a godly man (or woman) who loves you more than you could ever have imagined. John is the picture of selfless, unconditional love. I've always said he is a much nicer person than me, and he has proven it every day for 7 years. Girls, you've got to find the kind of guy that does not make you cringe when you read about submission in the Bible, because you know that he truly does have your best interest at heart and is seeking God's counsel to back it up.
I don't really feel like I picked John, more like God dropped him in my lap and said, "Here he is!" I may be wrong, but I'm one of those people who feels like God has one special person out there for you. I think we can mess with the plan and God can make the next best thing work, but I think if you follow the path there is one best choice out there for you. John is it for me.
The best reason to get married is that you feel that you can better serve God with that person than you could without him or her. I believed that 7 years ago, but now I see how true it has been. John has not only helped me live out my dreams, but has also helped me realize what they are. I seem to mention something small in passing and BOOM! John is on it, encouraging me to do it, to live it, to be it. (For an example, check out our new website: http://www.wohlfordphotography.com.)
One of the very best pieces of advice that anyone ever gave me was to marry someone whom you would want to raise your children if you were gone. I have no doubts that if something happened to me, Will would turn out to be the kind of man I want him to be, a man like his father.
To my husband, John, I love you with all my heart! Thank you for the last 7 years. I look forward to our future together! And thank you God for this wonderful man!
