The phrase “I married up” holds truer than anyone else in my life. It was evident when trying on a dress in a local boutique after we returned home from our honeymoon and the young woman helping me happen to be a fellow Mississippi gal. I will add, to give you a visual, that I was sweating from working out, had no make-up on, and probably had slight body odor. True story. But, I was on top of the world and was telling a friend of my new life with my soul mate….
“John Taylor this and John Taylor that…”
Upon bringing me a different size and looking me up and down, she said: “YOU married John Taylor Moore…..”
I rest my case.
Thank you for choosing me, John Taylor Moore. You’re my favorite Delta boy with a double name and I’m so thrilled to be Mrs. John Taylor Moore.
We’ve been through sickness and health
We’ve been through plenty and want
We’ve been through better and worse
We’ve endured many joys and many sorrows
We’ve endured job loss, pain, suffering
and life, birth, favor, blessings
Which means you’ve cooked approximately 3650 meals
and I’ve cooked approximately 3
This montage could have gone on for hours, but I picked my absolute favorite pictures from the past 10 years. Who wants to watch 10 years worth of pictures of the same two people? Probably not everyone, but each and every one of these means something to us because at first glance it takes us back to that place, memory, time in our life, or inside joke. I enjoyed watching this with you last night, especially the last song. I stand in awe of the miracles that God has done in our marriage and lives. And, though we’ve been through some really hard times the past 3.5 years, I wouldn’t trade those years for anything because it was during those years that we learned to trust Him more, to walk in complete faith. It was those years we learned that His way is higher than ours. It was in those years we grew to a whole nother level of marriage and relationship that some couple never reach in a lifetime. I thank God for you every time I think of you, husband. I love you.
