Happy Birthday Amy!

Today is Amy's birthday! Which one? You will have to ask her, because I'll never tell. God has a way of bringing people into our lives at just the right moment and Amy is one of those people for me. I am a better person because of her. I feel for her the same way I did when I said my marriage vows to her back in the summer of 1996. Here they are (in case you were not able to make it to the ceremony!):
Amy, I believe that as God created Eve just for Adam, He created you, just for me. I was lost without you and needed a helper...God sent you to me. I love you, and I have always loved you. I loved you before I even knew your name, when all I knew was that God had someone for me. I will always love you.

As the first song I ever played for you said, "I am your man, Now and Forever." I promise to listen to you, to learn from you, and to look out for your needs. I promise to hold you close and tell you of my love for you. More imporatntly, I promise to SHOW you my love. I promise to be there in the good times and the bad, the happy and the sad; when you are healthy and when you are sick. I promise to do my best to protect you from all harm.

Amy, my love, I vow to give you all that I am, and all I ever hope to be. Now and Forever, I'll be your man.

On your birthday, Amy, I once again put this vow out for the world to see. I love you and I am so happy that we get to grow old together!
