Three years ago today I met my wife.
It’s easy to point to a lot of different moments in my life that I can say had a lasting impact. Moments where everything to come would never be the same as anything that came before. But this moment. The moment I met Candace Rose Anderson was a moment among moments.
Needless to say, a lot has happened since we first met. We very quickly fell in love (although we were very slow to date or make such monumental claims). We got married. We had a baby.
We’re tracking pretty fast!
Candace is a woman most men only dream about. Not only that, but she’s a woman I dream about as being for me when I’m at my best. When I walk closely with the Lord and I have my priorities in line and I have humility and am swimming in grace… THAT is when she really glows in my heart.
The reason is that she’s a godly woman who has a soft heart and a strong will. She loves Jesus more than anything and her life is proof.
She is an incredible wife.
She is an incredible mother.
She is an incredible step-mother.
She is an incredible friend.
She is an incredible follower of Christ.
Three yeasr ago today, God changed my life forever when I sat down next to her and we first met. I can’t imagine what life would be like had we never met. I don’t want to imagine. God has me in the best possible place for me and I’m overjoyed that Candace is a part of the way He loves me.
I think I may be the most blessed man on the face of the earth.
