I met my husband at church.  It was summer 2004 and it was VBS week.  I had just started attending this church regularly and he was a member there.  Technically, though, I had known him since Kindergarten.  We had the same teacher.  We had the same teacher in first grade, too (there is a story about this for another blog post). We went to the same middle school and the same high school.  I never talked to him.  He was one of those people that I could pick out of a crowd...but don't ask me anything about him.  I could tell you his name was Robert and that was it.  So, we talked some at bible school and on the last night he asked me out to lunch.  I said yes and we decided to go after church that following Sunday.  When I came home from our date, I remember telling my dad, "I had fun but it's not like I am going to marry him or anything."  We were soon inseparable and I did not think I could love him any more than I did then.

Our wedding was October 14, 2006.  We were young and didn't have any clue what in the world we were doing.  All we knew was that we loved each other so very much...and that was all that mattered.  We rented a little place and started our life together.  I didn't think I could love him any more than I did then.

I got pregnant two weeks after our wedding. Our son was born a month early on July 5, 2007.  It was scary and exciting all at the same time.  He looked just like me and I was head over heels in love with him.  Seeing my husband hold our son for the very first time melted my heart.  I didn't think I could love him any more than I did then.

Our church, which we are now both members of, set Robert aside to be a deacon.  He will be following in the footsteps of several family members at that very church.  The church where we met.  Where we were both saved.  The day they announced it and it was voted on, I was so very proud of him.  Standing in front of everyone with our son beside us and our little girl in my belly, I didn't think I could love him any more than I did then.

Now, with two children and a home of our own, we have stresses and headaches.  On one stressful day last week, my husband sent me a text.  He had found a picture in one of this old work bags of the two of us when we were dating.  My hair looked awful and his shirt looked just as bad.  We both got a laugh out of it.  I asked him, "What in the world did you see in me?"  His response?  "I  don't know, I just knew I loved you."  The next day, I heard a song on the radio.

Don't you just love the little signs He sends when we really need a reminder that He is in control?

"We've come so far since that day...and I thought I loved you then."
