"When Love Takes You In . . ."


Matthew 19:4-6
He answered, "Have you not read that the one who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?  So they are no longer two, but on flesh.  Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

Eight years ago today, Danny and I were married.  It was one of the happiest days of my life, and these years spent with my love and best friend have been full of joys and blessings.  Allow me to share with you some wonderful memories from that beautiful day, April 2, 2005.























Happy Anniversary, Danny!!!
Know I love you more and more with each passing day . . .
Yours forever,
MJ

  6. Martha, I commented on this post and I don't know where it went! I wanted to say congratulations! Your wedding shots are so lovely! I can't remember the last time I was invited to a wedding. And it's sad because weddings are such joyous occasions. The daughter is not a fan of the institution of marriage. Hence, it looks like it'll be a long time before I witness anything this great! hee hee! I took the liberty of copying your prayer in my journal. It's so beautiful! I hope you don't mind. Have a blessed day! :)

  8. Happy Anniversary Martha. Thank you for making us a part of this wonderful celebration :) It's amazing how love could be felt in the images...it is thrilling.

    My love story is hidden in the archives. I have to dig it out LOL :P

    I pray always for you and Danny. You are both blessed in so many wonderful ways.

    I also pray for married couples. May the Lord strengthen their bonds more each day.

    Lots of love!

    1. Thanks so much for the anniversary wishes, Melissa, and for stopping by, and, of course, for sharing prayers with me.
      I'm glad I could share these photos - this meant a lot to Danny as we typically don't get each other anniversary gifts. It was the way I could say "I love you" to him. :)
      Blessings and love, my friend!
