Friday, February 6 2009 was our 11th wedding anniversary! 11 years people!!! Wow that went fast! I was 19 he was 25, we were in love and moving to Puerto Rico. We gave my parents a week's notice and my dad married us in Lakeland in my parent's home. My mom, the ever talented woman she was, pulled together a wedding for us in one week.
One week after our wedding, Javier left for Puerto Rico to start his new job and secure an apartment and vehicle for us. One month later I followed him and we began our new life together.
On Friday while holding hands at the breakfast table I looked into his eyes and said "you know after 11 years, I'm still deeply in love with you and get excited and get butterflies in my stomach over you." The man of few words looked back at me and said "me too!" That says it all.
God truly is the Healer. He healed my marriage and that's why we are still together. There were times when we could have gone our seperate ways, we could have left with very hurt and heavy hearts. It was only God's mercy that He poured down His amazing love and restored our love for each other. He took my broken heart and showed me Javier through His eyes. It's His love that is between us and binds us together! It's amazing how beautiful someone looks through His eyes.
My heartfelt prayer: Dear Jesus, Thank you for hearing my cry and reaching down with Your hand that heals. You touched my heart. You touched Javier's heart. I will be forever in awe of You. Love, Jennifer
