One year ago I wrote about how blessed I felt that God put Emily in my life. One year later we know each other better than ever, and I wake up each morning excited when I think about what the future holds for us.

Timothy Keller once wrote that there is no feeling like “the profound satisfaction of being known and loved.” Over the past two years, Emily has shown me that she not only loves me, but all my quirks as well. It’s a profound feeling of peace and safety that I have affectionately come to call “home.” Amongst everything else, I find it incredible that I’ve found a girl who has redefined such a fundamental term for me.
Keeping it Oreo focused, making time for coffee dates, and chasing down the occasional stray animal to try and make it our pet, I cannot wait to see where God leads us during the next year. I couldn’t be more happy.
“We love - because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)
Love you, sweetheart.
