Kaylin, last night you and I were walking up and down the hall listening to your Glow Worm play music. It play all kinds of different tunes, but one of them is a clip from the Wedding March. I hugged you and thought about walking you down the aisle one day. I remember how beautiful your mother was as she walked down that isle and I may melt right into the floor when I see you in your wedding dress one day.

I’ve learned a lot about myself in the six years your mom and I have been married. I’ve been told that I have changed (for the better) since that day back in 2005, but I know that the truth is the only thing that has changed in me is that a small number of my many flaws have been revealed, forgiven, and removed. The truth is that I was (and still am) a selfish man. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, but I often fail to show Jana the love that she deserves. She loves me, but I know that I disappoint her in many ways.

But wait I’ve got good news for you, Baby K. Marriage is not something to fear, because the most important lesson I’ve learned in these six years is that I don’t have to be perfect. Whoever your husband will be, as perfect as he may seem, there will be times when he disappoints you. The secret to living a happy marriage through the times of disappointment is to look beyond your husband’s flaws. Your true provider is God and He was singing songs of joy over you from the moment you were born.
