10 years and counting….

Today marks 10 years of wedded bliss between Joshua Lee and me.  Josh is the kind of guy you want to walk through life with.  See, I  have this unique way of seeing the worst in a situation very quickly.  Josh, on the other hand, has a unique way of seeing the best in every situation.

It gets on my nerves sometimes.

But most of the time I am just so glad that I have him to “do life” with.  He is a great husband.  That’s all there is to it.  He loves the Lord, he loves me, he loves our kids, and he works hard.  I love spending time with him more than any other person on the planet.  He makes the good times better and the harder times not so hard.  I loved the lyrics of a Sara Groves song I heard not long ago and immediately thought it true of Josh and me.

TWICE AS GOOD by Sara Groves

When I am down and need to cry till morning,
I know just where I am going.
When I’m in need of sweet commiseration
To speak out loud.
Raise a glass to friendship
And to knowing you don’t have to go alone.
We’ll raise out hearts to share each other’s burdens
On this road. 

Every burden I have carried,
Every joy–it’s understood.
Life with you is half as hard,
And twice as good.

With my good news you’re dancing on the table:
Baby’s born, to celebration.
The joy of life, oh what a sweet communion,
Shared with you.

Every burden I have carried,
Every joy–it’s understood.
Life with you is half as hard,
And twice as good.

I know we’re growing older,
Can you imagine what that will bring?
It’s all a mystery to me now,
Except this one thing:
It’ll be half as hard, and twice as good.
