Until Death Do us Part (completing him)


Do you remember your marriage vows? They went something like this:

I, ____, take you, ____, for my lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.

"Until death do us part." Do you remember that line? Statistics say that in America, over 50% of marriages do not make it "Until death do us part." (It is a even higher, more frightening percentage in military marriages)

Do you take your vows seriously? God does.

1. Matthew 19:6 says "what God has joined together, let man not separate." (exception: look at Matthew 19:9)

2. Malachi 2:14 says God is a witness to our marriage covenant.

3. Ephesians 5:22-33 says marriage is a picture of Christ and the church.
This weeks challenge is simply to Remember. Remember the day you entered your sacred vows. If you are a blogger, please post pictures from that day and share your story.
Our wedding day (or elopement day if you know our history) started off a little rocky......
We went to meet with our pastor on December 31, 2003 to talk about our January 1,2004 wedding. He was really dressed up and said many weird things that we finally had to get clarified. He thought that we were getting married THAT day!
He couldn't do it the next day. It was just a silly miscommunication but our day was ALMOST ruined BUT thanks to the help of our good friends, it went off without a hitch! We had Ben's roommate, Dan (and his wife,) stand witness with us. My friend, Dana, took our pictures. They threw flowers, me, videos, and alot of other stuff together in a quick hurry!
We went that night to spend the night down on Pensacola Beach. It is a fun story to tell now & it was really a wonderful ceremony despite it's rough start.
I'll save our renewal of vows story for another time!

Ok,ok so Mama M. was having this yesterday for Father's Day but I have been CONSUMED with prep work for our VBS week. I figured that it is better late than never!
My hubby also known as BeeGeeWeeGee (BGWG), babe, babers, Benny, BB, B, daddy, dad, DDDAAAADDDEEEE!
He encourages me in whatever I take on & helps out when he can....like putting pre-school crafts together on father's day!
He has been taken away from us for 24 hour duty days too many times to count, 5 detachments (that vary from 4 to 9 weeks long), 3 deployments to Iraq (7 months a piece), training, cross-countries, and all that comes with being a Marine. People will tell me, "I don't know how you do it." Well I don't know how he does it. I get to see our kiddos sweet, smiling faces every day & I never have to leave them or hear of their "firsts" through an email, phone call, or letter. For that, he really is my HERO & MR. WONDERFUL.

He is the best father to our children that I could have asked for. Constantly giving more energy after long days and commute from work.
He changes diapers and doesn't even throw up!
(Kendall 2006)

He loves our children so well!
He pushes me to be a better person.

He challenges me to try new & exciting things.

He is beautiful inside and out!
