Celebrating Love and Life

This year, our wedding anniversary falls on Easter Sunday.  According to Answers.com, this will only occur in 2011 and 2095 in this century, so I want to relish it.  The significance of this is not lost on me.  I celebrate the two greatest loves of my life on this dedicated occasion.  And both their names just happen to start with the letter "J".

I celebrate the one here on earth, who six years ago promised to hold and love me for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.  And in those six years, he has loved me through the good and the bad, the fun times and the rather awful, and exercised forgiveness and grace when it would have been easier to walk through the front door and not look back.  I've done the same for him.

And I rejoice in the One, the King, who thousands of years ago was promised to us, humbly came to earth born in a manger, and lived a brief but perfect and righteous life only to endure an awful death and the wrath of hell for my sake.  In the greatest act of love, He took on the punishment that should have been mine instead of walking away and turning His back.  He died and rose again so that death can never keep us apart.
