But a lot has stayed the same. We're still here in Aggieland, what was supposed to be a stop to enjoy the best years of our lives, has turned into our home where we've learned that the years keep getting better. We drove to our date in the same pick up truck we did 12 years ago, and I held the same hand and looked into the same blue eyes.

And we're just getting started. I wonder what it's like to when you get to fifty years, what it's like to no longer remember being anything except each other's. To know how to submit to one another and put the other's needs before your own, everyday. I have tried it both ways and it has taught me, a marriage without God at the center is impossible, a marriage with God at the center is still one of the hardest things you'll ever do, but absolutely worth every moment.
