Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
There are not many people today that truly live this out. Justin is definitely one of those that shows me true love, the kind that God wants us to show. I cannot say he is perfect; none of us are. But when I read this scripture over and over, I think of all the things that I can be, and how most people (including myself) might react. Justin reacts with love.
I’m so thankful for these past 8 years. I wouldn’t have wanted to go through anything we have with anyone else but Justin. He encourages me to be a better person in the way he treats others. He sees the best in people and doesn’t get easily offended or hold grudges. I don’t know what I would have done without him in so many situations. I was a mess and in need of a strong man and he was always there, without complaint. We have grown a lot, learned more about each other, had two amazing boys, faced many challenges, laughed a lot, and argued some, but through it all we have never given up. We are still learning to fight fair, balance life, and to show love in the best way. It’s a journey, one we will continue on no matter what comes our way.
Happy 8 year Anniversary Justin Taylor. I love you!
