One year

A year ago today, Mr. Miller and I were declared one in the sight of God, our families, and a host of witnesses. We've since shared twelve blissful months together.

Marriage is amazing. Mr. Miller is my best friend, my passion, my inspiration, my amusement, and my love. I can hardly believe I get to fall asleep every night next to him and talk to him for so many of my waking moments. By the grace of God, being married to him and caring for the children we have together is my life calling. How can I be so fortunate! I love him more now than I ever thought possible and suspect that this love will only continue to grow as I daily observe his relationship with the Lord, his deep devotion to the Word, his affection for his family--especially our new daughter, and his commitment to see the King of Kings glorified by every tribe and tongue.

Speaking of Evangeline, she is the highlight of our union, a miraculous manifestation of how the "two shall become one."

I am so happy that you two found each other, or perhaps it is better said, that you two were drawn together by the glorious mystery of providence.

Happy Anniversary Keith and Bethany! I am sorry that I missed it, but glad to have read your tribute to a great first year together. I can so relate to the emotion behind your words, and I do agree that love grows and grows in a way I never thought possible. Praise be to God for bringing you two together and for making you one through Evangeline!
