Dear Katie

Dear Katie,
I heard our first dance song at our wedding the other day. It hit me straight to the heart. Every word couldn’t describe us better.

“…🎶 ‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs…🎶” When you picked this as our wedding song I couldn’t imagine how true this song would be. Just that line alone could be the theme for the past few days and my hanger episodes.

Without you the downs would last longer and the ups wouldn’t be nearly as high. I can’t thank God enough for him placing you in my life.

Was someone following me around right before I met you to write this song. The intro couldn’t be more true. I was a mess, still am. Ha.

“…🎶 I’ve been a walking heartache. I’ve made a mess of me. The person that I’ve been lately. Ain’t who I wanna be. But you stay right beside me. And watch as the storm blows through. And I need you…🎶”

I was a shell of who I wanted to be without you. I didn’t have quite the dad bod I do know but my mental fitness was flat. It was non-existent. You pushed me to achieve what I thought I couldn’t and most importantly you encouraged my faith when I had very little.

I love that Christ is the center of our family. I love that you’re so selfless. I love that you’re an amazing mother. I love you.

There are different facets to fitness. I’m thankful God placed you in my life to keep me mentally fit.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

While I joking work on getting my “hawt bod” back, I’m truly grateful for what I’ve been given. Part of the transformation in my life is to respect my body and treat it as the temple it is. The price that was paid is unimaginable and I’m forever grateful.

I love you, Katie, and rather than rack my brain for something to say that won’t nearly come close to what I feel I’ll just stick with our song.

“…🎶 On my own I’m only half of what I could be. I can’t do without you. We are stitched together. And what love has tethered I pray we never undo…🎶”

I have another blog as well if you’re interested in my mental game. 

I Owe You This
