As we just celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary on March 25th, I wanted to highlight the vows George wrote to me, and the vows I sang to him.
I’ve loved you since our first date,
days before I asked God to show me
to finally introduce me to ‘the one.’
Though I had known you for 8 months,
That’s when we had our first conversation.
September 16, 2016.
It started with a conversation, a cheesy movie, a bon-fire,
Dave & Busters and Deerfield fair,
when it was maybe, kind of a date?
When we snacked on grapes and listened to Journey on the way.
When I was reluctant to hold your hand because
I thought it would be too forward,
to having our first kiss
And two and a half hours of talking,
I’ll never forget that night,
when I was falling by the second,
when it was the moment I knew,
You were the one,
I knew God had answered my prayers
and everything felt right,
everything felt like home.
The Earth shifted when we actually met,
Your tidal wave washed away my past
and I felt God’s hands all over it.
How perfect our timing, born for such a love as this;
when God flipped the ON switch to us,
we knew, broken hearts were in the past.
I promise to always be honest,
to listen to and consider your thoughts,
your words, and your feelings
I promise not to walk away when it gets hard,
I’ll always remember why we fell in love.
I promise to try for more,
to love you whole-heartedly
put my all into us.
I promise to put God first, because I’ve learned
that if we bring it all to Him,
everything falls into place.
I promise to keep my eyes on us,
that my desire will stay only for you.
I promise to be gentle and kind,
to be patient.
I promise not to become proud,
not to boast or become envious
I will not be rude or self-seeking,
I won’t be easily angered
or keep record of wrong-doings,
I won’t delight in evil,
instead I’ll rejoice in the truth.
I will protect, trust, always hope,
always have faith, and always preserve.
I vow to make your life better because I’m in it,
your dreams become our dreams.
I will fight for us,
I will love you,
and I’ll love your family as my own.
I promise to forgive,
to communicate and be affectionate,
to treat you as my friend, my wife,
I vow to kiss the pain away,
to laugh away the tears with you.
I promise to be what it means to be a
and all it encompasses,
I promise to slowly, slowly
grow old with you.
Patiently, I will grow with you.
George my Love,
Coming up with words doesn’t always come easy for me. But there is another way that I love to communicate with you so here it goes….
I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky I’ll be there
Like the shadow that’s by your side I’ll be there
For better or worse til death do us part
I’ll love you with every beat of my heart I swear
One, you're like a dream come true
Two, just want to be you
Three, boy its plain to see that you're the only one for me
And four, repeat steps one through three
Five, make you fall in love with me
If ever I believe my work is done then I’ll start back at one
And all my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I finally found you
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes I pray that you do love me too
So suddenly, I’m in love with a stranger
I can’t believe that he’s mine
Now all I see is you with fresh eyes, fresh eyes
Cause my heart starts beating triple time
When thoughts of loving you on my mind
I can’t figure out just what to do
When the cause and cure is you
I get so weak in the knees I can hardly speak
I loose all control and something takes over me
In a daze and it’s so amazing, it’s not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride your love is so sweet
It knocks me right off of my feet
Can’t explain why your loving makes me weak
You put your arms around me
and I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me I’m hooooooooome
You put your arms around me I’m home
I wasn’t sure that I’d ever understand the phrase you know when you know until I met you. I knew that day in the parking lot talking for hours that I could never live without you. You have become my home and that’s where I always want to be with you. You ARE my forever home. I love you so much and I’m so happy to finally become the Mrs. to your Mr. So hurry up and kiss me so we can start our happily ever after.
