The day I said “Oh yeah!”

Our Wedding Day {9-3-00}

I wore a white dress.

He wore a tux.

The minister asked me if I took this man as my husband…

And I said, “Oh yeah!” instead of “I do.”

Twelve years later {today} it still seems like the right response.

Do I know God brought us together? Oh yeah.

Has marriage been both more wonderful and harder {mostly because of me} than I could have imagined? Oh yeah.

Am I looking forward to the next twelve years? Oh yeah.

Mark and I have been through a lot–so much laughter, our share of tears, holidays and everydays, bike rides and trips, births and deaths, and lots of baked goods {my love language}.

He’s a good man who keeps his feet on the ground so I can have my head in the clouds.

I’m glad I said “yes” in my own way that day.

A recent anniversary

Yes to whatever came.

Yes to what God had planned.

Yes to the unknown.

I think that’s the way we’re meant to live. Not just saying “I do” with our will but saying “yes” with our hearts.

With all we are.

And all we’re yet to be.

What do you need to say “Oh yeah!” to today?
