The year was 1989...
The hair was permed, the bangs were poofed, the jeans were "stonewashed", and Bon Jovi was playing "Livin' On A Prayer" on my boombox:)
It was a year that changed my life. I fell in love with a boy and I've been in love with him ever since. Hard to believe, I know, that I found my future husband when I was only 14 years old. But God had a seriously big plan for us, we just didn't know it at the time.
Like almost every other teenage girl on the planet, I dreamed about being married and having a family someday. In my heart I planned my way, but little did I know that the Lord was planning my each one of my steps, even way back in Jr. High. We've walked along side each other, my hubby and me, for a long time and I'm so glad God gave us the blessing of having so many fun (and funny) memories together.
I mean really, the Lord must have known that we would look totally cool together: the pink beach shirt with grey and white stripped Jams and a sleeveless turtleneck with two-toned cut off (but rolled up) jeans and white Reebok velcro high tops.
A match made only in heaven:)
I'm so grateful that God has grown us in ways that we could have never imagined back then. Ten years married and five children later, here we are, still loving life together.
Happy Valentine's Day, Babe! I'm still crazy about ya:)
Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)
The heart of man plans his way,
but the LORD establishes his steps.
