November 11, 2007

I so wish the last few weeks of my life had included the planning of an anniversary trip and what to get for Michael. We really enjoyed our first two anniversaries by getting away and choosing special things for one another. The first year we went to San Francisco and stayed in a swanky hotel, and last year we stayed at an amazing inn on the beach in Cambria. I'm sad that this year will not be that way.

Our wedding day was the happiest day of my life. All my dreams seemed to be coming true as we dressed in our wedding attire, said our vows and exchanged rings, drank to our happiness, danced to some of our favorite songs, and received well-wishes from dear friends and family in attendance. Now instead of celebrating our wedding anniversaries together, I will dream of the marriage supper of the Lamb where I hope to sit right next to my earthly groom and celebrate the dawn of Eternity - an eternity in which death will not steal our loved ones from us ever again. Maranatha!

Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God." ~ Revelation 19:7-9


  1. Thinking about you today, Joannah. So sorry that this day has come without Michael here on Earth to celebrate with you.

  2. What a challenging day. Sending prayers and thoughts your way. Hoping that your heart feels Michael's love from Heaven above - he loves you forever and all of eternity and that is such a joy. I realize today is a mixed set of emotions as you remember the joyous day of your wedding and grieve the loss of your love and best friend, your husband. Sarah

    Prayers and Hugs for you.

  9. What a beautiful couple, I love this photo, what a treasured memory for you. I cannot imagine how hard the day must have been for you, I wish you were away somewhere with him celebrating right now...until you meet again, I pray for God to continue to Bless you with his Grace. xoxoxoxox
