Happy Birthday My Kevin!!!!!!!!

Kevin, today we celebrate your life, your existence, your 26th year. It is overwhelming to me that God chose me to be in your life, and not only be in it, but share it. We have had an amazing journey so far. You have taken me across the country, we have bought two homes together, we have watched fireworks, walked the beach, explored islands, laughed until we cried, and became parents. We have had a lot of life in just four years together, and I get to spend the rest of my life with yours.

You are the greatest gift, the encourager, my rock and protector. You are everything I dreamed of and so many things I never knew I needed. You have brought happiness, joy, and love into my life, and are a true picture of Christ.

Our marriage is special, and from the moment I saw you water skiing in a superman costume I knew I was in love with you. My love has changed, deepened and grown for you. I don’t know what God has for us, but I know as long as I get to walk it with you it will be the greatest adventure, and something neither of us can imagine.

Our marriage truly is the greatest picture of Christ and his love and romance for us. I can’t imagine my life with anyone else. We are truly blessed, and I know that you were created, designed and spoken into existence just for me! Our love is rare, and I don’t ever want to take advantage of our Sunday afternoons, hikes, arguments, laughter, dumpster diving, exploring life, journey together.

Happy birthday Kevin, I know sometimes it is hard to celebrate without our boys, but I know God is whispering in their ears about what a great and amazing dad they have, who loves to build with his hands, listen with his eyes, and live his life for his King! You are dad Kevin, and although we are not celebrating my growing belly on this birthday we do celebrate the lives of our children through living our lives. So we will live Kevin, we will live for Eddie and Judah, and we will live because God has chosen to give us life, and we will stand together in the greatest storms with our hands lifted high and our hearts living to praise our God.

I love you Kevin, and there are no words that I can write on a blog that will ever describe or do justice for that love, so I will do my hardest to show you how much I love you everyday of our life together!!!!
Happy 26th birthday!!!!!
