PRUNING to remove: the act of cutting away what is dead, particularly to increase fruitfulness or growth
This year we lost so much. At times, I felt I was losing my mind. I know a couple of times, I did. When I gave up on us, on you, our family, on love... you said no... love said not so. We've suffered personal losses that were difficult to get through, but by the Lord's grace, we made it. You've lifted my head and held my hand every step of the way. When I had mentally checked out, and knew that that one day in June was my last day here, that I wasn't making it to 2019, you shielded me from my own enemy... Me. God knows what we need exactly when we need it. I often wonder how this girl that was born and raised in the streets of Mississippi to a single mother, that has made all of the mistakes that I've made, and could never get anything right, got it together enough for you to see me, to notice me, to protect me, to embrace me, to love... me. Then I realize that it's not about me at all. I honor you my king because you enable us to bring God glory. Everything that we lost, was for His glory. Who we were and are becoming is for His glory. I'm honored and humbled that He chose us for one another, and for His glory.
We may have lost, but we have truly gained. I'm forever yours and we are forever HIS. at Los Angeles, California
