5 years

8 Aug

Dance me to your beauty like a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch, be my homeward dove
And dance me to the end of love
Please dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Oh let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Oh show me slowly what I only know the limits of
And dance me to the end of love
Please dance me to the end of love

Oh dance me to the wedding now, oh, dance me on and on
And dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, and both of us above
And dance me to the end of love, ooh
Won’t you dance me to the end of love

~ Leonard Cohen

Nicolas, the past 5 years have been a painted picture of sacrifice, love, patience, strife, hard work, struggle, joy and memories. We’ve made babies together, and we’ve lost babies together. We’ve moved and we’ve planted roots; lost jobs and made money. We’ve agreed and disagreed; tolerated each other and had tickle fights together. And that’s just scratching the surface. Who could I have asked to do these and so much more with? You are my other half.

It’s so encouraging to know that we don’t have to do this on our own and haven’t! That the Holy Spirit is always here to convict and guide us. Where would we be without Him? I’ve seen such growth in our marriage because of this fact. From year 1 to year 5? Babe, wow. And we only have so many, many more years ahead of us. Thank you Jesus. I’m so grateful that God saw fit to change me and teach me. I’m so thankful He gave me a moldable heart (though I fight that often). And that He did the same for you. We would not be where we are today without that, and we are still learning every single day.

I am continually blessed by you. You are such a servant. You are loving, caring, fun and weird. I do believe I am the only woman on earth who can handle you. I am glad to take on that role; to serve you, love you, please you, care for you, back you up… I am always on your side. I will be yours for years to come, whether you are ready for that or not!

I pray we are blessed with many more Sundowns together. I don’t want to do life with anyone but you. I love you. Happy 5th Anniversary, Nicolas.
